A wonderful and inexpensive way to have a beautiful cake at any function is to make it yourself. I've begun using a recipe for home made fondant (sugary "dough" icing for cakes) using powdered sugar and mini marshmallows!

There are about a thousand recipes online and the end results are beautiful and delicious! I've made fondant for a fraction of the cost than you can get pre-made at a craft store! And in my opinion, it tastes much better!

The very best fondant is buttercream fondant. It is basically any buttercream frosting with no liquid. You can use real butter, but sparingly, mostly Crisco. Mix everything together, then if it needs a little moisture, add only 1 or 2 teaspoons of water, no more!

Some recipes on line call for lemon or orange oil, I used clear vanilla or regular vanilla, or any other flavorings you would like. I have also used invisible Kool-Aid or colored Kool-Aid for flavor. Fun!
