Wedding Cake Challenge

This must be my Wedding Cake week. The YW president just asked me to make a small wedding cake for the Young Women to have on Wednesday. The Laurels (16-18 year old girls) are having a "Bride's Night" and will eat my cake for their refreshments.

I'm so excited, it gave me a chance to try a new recipe for Marshmallow Fondant! So far it looks like it is going to work really well! It looks and feels exactly like the Wilton stuff that you can buy at Michael's for $10 for about the same amount. The marshmallow stuff cost $3.50 (Marshmallows are on sale) and took about 20 minutes to make! So far it tastes better than the Wilton Rolled Fondant too! The recipe said that it's easier to roll out after it's set overnight, and keeps really well.

I can hardly wait to try rolling it and covering the cake. I'm baking my cakes tonight for both YW and the Wedding (just the "topper" for the 1 year anniversary). I'll post pics of the finished Brides Night cake for YW on Wednesday! Wish me luck.
