Marshmallow fondant questions

by Sarah Baker
(Pennsylvania)

I've always wanted to try to make fondant. But i've been told it tastes bad. If i try to make the marshmallow fondant will that taste bad too? I don't want the taste of he fondant to over rule the taste of the cake.
Also, if i make the marshmallow fondant, can i put that over the whole cake or can i only use it for the details?

From the editor:

Hi Sarah,

Marshmallow fondant can be used to cover the entire cake, as well as for the details. It is definitely easier to make than traditional fondant and although it does taste better, most people will still peel off the fondant layer before eating.

It's a matter of personal preference. I like buttercream with fondant details, but many people love fondant covered cakes.
