I am an experienced cake decorator, but had never used fondant - this is a great recipe after tweaking the directions. Many thanks to Cassandra for her revised directions for mixing. I initially tried using my stand mixer and wound up with a sticky mess climbing up the beaters. Cassandra's instructions to "...pour most of the bag of powdered sugar onto a mat on my table, and make a well in center of it. Then I add the cooled melted marshmallow mixture to the well and begin scooping the powdered sugar up and over the mm mixture with my greased hands. I keep doing this over and over for several minutes until the mm mixture is no longer runny and not as sticky to the touch. Then I begin the kneading process." This technique was fast and not messy at all. I did use a very small amount of Crisco on my hands at the beginning. Thanks for the great recipe - will add almond extract next time.
