Last Friday I figured I would go ahead and give it a shot.
I pulled up the recipe and grabbed my ingredients. The first step was to grease a glass bowl with some Crisco:
magic number for me. The marshmallows were one big sticky puddle of glop after stirring:
I made a cake and left it to cool after making the fondant.
Later that day I pulled the fondant out of the fridge and rolled it out so that it was about 1/4 - 1/8 of an inch thick:
We tried the cake when the hubs got home that evening and it was indeed rather yummy. I can't say that it rivals buttercream, but this fondant was far from the gross fondants I had always known previously and had always peeled off of cakes before eating them. Hubby actually liked it a lot. I think it was overall a success and I definitely plan to use it for Baby Boo's birthday cake. I will be putting a buttercream filling in hers though so that it isn't so dry. I'm excited to see how that comes out once early September rolls around. Now I just need to decide on the colors and decore!
I will once again leave you all with some more cake eye candy courtesy of Pinterest:
