I use almost that recipe except the butter. I put the water and/or vanilla in a bowl microwave the marshmallows. I incorporate the sifted icing sugar. Totally grease your spoon with shortening and your hands and the counter, knead in the rest of the icing sugar. Takes a while but it is worth it. cover it with shortening & wrap in plastic, then a bag & let it sit overnight if possible. If you need to model figurines etc. add a small amount of gumpaste powder. If its too dry add water spoonful at a time, too sticky add sugar. Tastes so much better than bought fondant. Just remember to grease everything that comes in contact. To roll a large piece (10 in cake or larger) I grease the rolling area & use a heavy piece of plastic, rolls out much easier. Remember to move it around as you roll it.I was totally intimidated but once I did it I have become obsessed with decorating cakes.
