Marshmallow fondant?

Hi Everyone. I just posted in my other post about trying to do marshmallow fondant. I've never made it, but supposedly it tastes better than regular fondant. Anyway, just wondering if anyone has actually ate some and what your thoughts are on it. :)

I've made it.  It was hell to work with, as all fondants are.  Don't let anyone tell you different.  Your arm WILL fall off.  As for taste, not noticably better, but then, I wouldn't consider fondant a food treat.  It's mostly for decorative purposes.  BTW, "regular" fondant is the same basic thing as marshmallow fondant--it's just that the marshmallows are deconstructed.  You are using the ingredients that MAKE marshmallows.

My daughter plays with fondant.  I'll ask her if she has tried marshmallow!
