In a large flat bowl,add icing sugar with the help of the sifter and make a well in the center.

In bowl,add white marshmallows,food color and microwave for 40 seconds then mix until smooth.

Immediately pour melted marshmallows over the icing sugar,mix and add more a little at a time,until stickiness disappears.Knead in remaining sugar until the fondant is smooth,pliable and does not stick to your hands.

Cover in cling film and use fondant immediately or store in airtight container.

With the help of the cake knife,horizontally cut two layers of cake.

Apply frosting and place another cake layer and cover the sides of the cake with frosting & set aside.

Take fondant and sprinkle corn flour and dough out with the help of rolling pin.

Now roll the fondant around the rolling pin and unroll the fondant over the cake then smooth out the top of the fondant,do not press very hard.

After the top is smooth you need to work all sides so they are flat against the cake.Once all the sides are covered,remove the excess fondant around the bottom edges of the cake with the help of the cutter.

Important tips:

if your fondant gets hard so you can add shortening or just microwave it for 5-6 seconds.

if your fondant gets sticky add icing sugar or cornflour.

once your fondant is formed and if you’re not satisfy with the colour you can adjust the colour by adding more colour in fondant to reach your desire colour

- if you want to store fondant so wrap it in cling film and store it in air tight box in room temperature.

-we have used candy land marshmallows but you can use any marshmallows.

- if you want to make it for a small cake so you can half the recipe or you can take 1 pack of marshmallows (50 grams) and 1 pack of icing sugar (300 grams)
