GF Marshmallow Fondant Recipe

**Pic taken from Pinterest by ClockworkLemon


Oh My God.  I'll say it again because I am so excited.  Oh My God.  I found the coolest recipe on Pinterest on how to make marshmallow fondant.  For those of you who do not know what fondant is, its the sugary professional icing on cupcakes and wedding cakes and well all kinds of cakes that is hard and smooth.  All those amazing cakes you see that have people or purses or cakes made into purses, Tiffany boxes, Chanel bags etc.  It's that hard icing that is rolled out like a sugar cookie.  A little more temperamental then regular icing and also more time consuming.  But if you are into fondant on your cakes and cupcakes then this recipe is for you.  

I have also had a hard time finding out if boxed fondant by Wilton is in fact gluten-free, so I have stopped using it.  Now that I have found this marshmallow fondant that literally just uses food coloring and that's optional, confections sugar, water and marshmallows I am in heaven.  I cannot wait to use this on my cupcakes!

Check this out, it is so cool!  It is a simple recipe, with no exact measurements, as you can just determine how much you want and what you want the color to look like or make multiple colors!  How to make Marshmallow Fondant.  I found it on the blog of Clockworklemon.  

Enjoy!!!  I am ecstatic!

    Hi, I am making a gluten free cake and want to use this marshmallow recipe, are you able to confirm if all marshmallows are gluten free? Thanks in advance. Laura

    1. Hi Laura,

      I CANNOT confirm that ALL marshmallows are gluten free. You will have to call the manufacturer. There should be a phone number on the back of the package.

      I hope your cake comes out real tasty!!

    2. All marshmallows are NOT gluten free. Be careful what you buy!

    3. Hi Michelle, I never stated that all marshmallows were gluten-free. As I suggest to anyone, calling the manufacturer is the best process to find out what is gluten-free and what isn't, and how the manufacturing process takes place.

    1. I'm sorry I don't know. You may want to call Wilton and see if their Fondant is gluten-free, but I am not sure that it is. This recipe I found on Pinterest, and is a homemade version of fondant.
