I am going to to the cake business and I am just starting out. I want to be able to make the fondant and I am going to buy a mixer but don't have a lot of money to send on it.

I was looking into Kitchenaids but they are way too expensive so I found one called a Rival that I can afford. It is 200 watts. Would that be enough to make the marshmallow fondant?

From the editor:

Hi Becca,

Sadly, I wouldn't recommend such a mixer. I think that making the fondant would most likely burn out the motor. You can actually make marshmallow fondant by hand, in the beginning. I would probably recommend doing this and checking ebay for a second hand Kitchenaid. There really is no replacement for a great mixer.

Here's a video I found that runs through the procedure for making the marshmallow fondant by hand. You can still use the recipe we have here on the site. I hope you'll find this helpful.

no need for mixers to make mm fondant
by: samee

I bought a stand mixer thinking it would be of good use to make marshmallow fondant but found out it does little help at all. I now make it by hand it is easier, all you need to do is grease up the bowl and spatula very generously to avoid stickiness. Follow the instructions and ingredients and you will make a successful fondant.
