Yay for fondant!!! First time, and I can't wait to try it again! I used my KitchenAid, and I did 1/2 a recipe at a time, because I was worried about the motor as per other reviews, and I wanted to colour the mix before the sugar went in, and I had several colours to do. I found the 1/2 recipe very manageable, and no problem whatsoever for the mixer. I microwaved the marshmellows with 1tbsp water, when they were melted, I dumped into the mixer and added 1 more tbsp water and the vanilla. I mixed that all together with the dough hook, and then started adding the colour and sugar until the desired consistency and colour were reached. Once it formed a ball, I wrapped and put it in the fridge. I made one the night before, and one about 2 hours before I used it, and both turned out great. I kneaded them a couple times before rolling out, but that was it. It wasn't sticky, and I was able to roll it out to 1/4" thickness with ease. I used a silicone mat, which I started out with cornstarch, but switched to butter for greasing. It was so easy!!! I kept the mess factor down, by greasing EVERYTHING I used with butter, the microwave bowl for the marshmellows, the mixing bowl, the dough hook, the spatula and spoons I used, the rolling pin...everything. After a 5 minute soak in hot water, no problem to clean whatsoever. YAY!!! As I said, can't wait to make more cakes!!
