Anyway, it is the time to start making all kinds of special occasion cakes and fondant is very expensive to buy but rather inexpensive to make your self. I thought I would give you good recipe for fondant and some explanation as to what you might look for while making it.
You see above you all the necessary items for this recipe. I know many are making this "marshmallow" fondant which they say tastes better than the real thing. However, being the purest that I am I will not use premade marshmallows for my fondant and from what I can tell the marshmallow style is not only plastic tasting from the bagged puffs but rather sticky and difficult to use as well. I am sure there is a trick to it and if you prefer that I am not one to tell you "no" but I prefer this recipe. It isn't going to be anything but SWEET no matter which recipe you use... it is primarily sugar, so there you go!
Here is the recipe and following will be photos and explanations...hope it all helps you fab cake decorators out there!
