Mario Kart Birthday Cake

I made this for my sons seventh birthday! I used marshmallow fondant.



Here is how I make my Marshmallow fondant -it's an exact science (not really)
I take a 13 oz jar of Marshmallow cream and a bag of powdered sugar and combine them in my kitchen aid with the dough hook.
I start with a couple cups of powdered sugar in the bottom to keep it from sticking. Then I pour in the bottle of cream ( a hot knife helps it come out). Then I pour in some more powdered sugar and start beating. It mixes into little balls. You'll think you've done something wrong but you can't mess this up. I mix till it doesn't look sticky anymore just crumbly. Then I cover my hands and a surface with powdered sugar, dump out the crumbles and start kneading them together. If it gets sticky at all, add more powdered sugar. Keep kneading till you get a fondant consistency. Add food coloring and more powdered sugar as needed. When I'm done rolling and placing the fondant, I use a kitchen brush to brush off any extra powdered sugar.

I read about this fondant in a magazine in a doctors office about five years ago and started making it from memory. I'll post pictures of the process next time I make it.

My son wanted a mario cart birthday party for his 7th coming up but I was too intimidated by the cake part of it (so it'll be Lego Space Police instead), where did you find the toy cars? Tell me you didn't hand make them out of fondant...

Kalleen said...

No, I didn't make the toy cars. I got them on ebay. The set was missing Mario so I got it for a lot cheaper than normal.
