Fondon't Fondant?

Ok so in a desperate attempt to bring out my creative side I decided to try something new that I had never done anything close to. Cake decorating. Yep that's right. I dug deep down for my inner 'Cake Boss' and busted out my big guns. I was decorating fondant style. I had always heard what a pain it is, that it's not really worth it and it tastes like crap anyways. But the recipe I used was really tasty! Anyways, you should of seen me preparing, I looked like I was going into battle. And if you would have been there to see my kitchen after... actually my whole house after, you would of thought that

World War Three had just happened.

I made homemade Marshmallow fondant from a recipe I got here http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm

It was pretty simple and quick and MESSY. I'm talking two year old with finger paint messy. I had marshmallow everywhere. On the microwave, fridge, cupboards, couch, computer, my son's bumbo, even the poor dang dog got it on him in his attempt to get a whiff. MESSY.

Anyways, after 4 loooong hours I finished the cake. Not at all how I wanted it to turn out but my kitchen is still standing and that's what really matters, I was going for a Halloween theme but my son ate the spiders and ghosts I had made :)

Here she is... and yes, its a she.

I know, not the best thing you've ever seen. I certainly won't be starring in my own TLC show anytime soon but i think with a little practice this is something I could get good at, and really enjoy!
