Before we jump into the cake, lets start with the Marshmallow fondant its quick and relatively easy to make.
Marshmallow Fondant Ingredients:
- 2 tbs Shortening or butter
- 1 Cup of Marshmallows
- 1 ½ tsp water
- ¼ tsp corn syrup
- 2-3 drops flavouring (if desired)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Start by greasing your microwavable bowl with butter or shortening, add your marshmallows, sprinkle over water, corn syrup and flavouring. Give it a quick mix and microwave for 25-45 seconds. Marshmallows should puff up and start melting.
Pour powdered sugar into bowl and mix with a rubber spatula (greased) until fondant comes together. Grease your hands well, pick up fondant and start to knead it. If fondant is sticky add more powdered sugar. Knead until smooth.
I then separated a small amount for the eyes and a small amount for the tongue and knead in a few drops of each colour. Once you’re happy with the colours, roll out fondant on parchment paper to desired thickness.
I printed out a Snapchat ghost body, eyes and mouth as my stencil for the fondant. Use this as your guide for sizing accuracy.
Once you are happy with your ghost, set your fondant aside for later. For my Golden Butter cake I used a caramel filling. You can use anything you like here. Once you’ve added the filling be sure to chill your cake in the fridge for a few minutes before icing it.
When you are done icing your cake pop it back into the fridge to chill further before you even think about placing your fondant on top of the cake. (yes, this is an order.)
And voila! Quick, easy and super cute.
