I really liked this recipe and it tasted good unlike other fondants I've eaten. On one batch I used mini marshmallows and on the other batch I used marshmallow fluff. I preferred the mini marshmallow version. I felt it was less sticky and easier to work with in general. I also set up 2 stations on my counter top for kneading. One area had the powered sugar and the other had shortening. When my fondant started to stick on the powdered sugar side, I transferred my fondant for a couple of kneads on the shortening side which kept things less messy. That being said, I still got powdered sugar all over myself and the floor. Be prepared for some clean up time and move any rugs from the floor ahead of time I also had a very wide spatula to pick up the rolled out fondant when I was ready to transfer it on to the cake. It was a lifesaver! Overall making the fondant was a bit time consuming and a bit of a learning curve but well worth it for the taste and is much more budget friendly than buying it. I love the endless possibilities now that I've learned to make fondant!
