Minecraft sucks

My Minecraft Creeper cake for Ethans 9th birthday.

Cha. Cuz’ I’m seriously the worlds most awesomest freaking mommy ever!!  

This mamajamma is four, yup, four! 1, 2, 3, 4 layers of marbled dutch chocolate and french vanilla cake with hand-dyed, (pretty certain I gave myself carpal-tunnel syndrome) square-cut pieces of my homemade marshmallow fondant. {use it, it’s the best tasting one I’ve come across, recipe below} Took for-freaking-ever! BUT when the boy saw it, his giant smile and super-happy-squeezey-hug made all the work totally worth it! (kinda. my wrist still hurts pretty damn bad)

I realized a little too late that most of the shit had to be handmade. What?! Who does that?! NO ONE SELLS IT. Anywhere. I looked. Everywhere. Gah. So ya, shot my own damn foot with this one.
After creating and coloring and cutting and caking (meh, shoosh, it’s a C-word, it flows) for two weeks, it was time to conquer the cake. I was going to make this Creeper Cake my bitch.
Oh and I so did.
It was all like, “Please Sarah, don’t be so awesome at making me, I’m so scared of your great success and I’m way intimidated by your skill set.” and I was like, “Ya, that’s right Creeper Cake. Stand down. Let me bake and layer you like you deserve it! Then I’m gonna cool and frost you Creeper cake. Oh hell yes I am.”
Needless to say, the above cake was put in its place and accepted me as it’s master baker. Eeeewww. master. baker. masterbaker. I just went there. With cake.
I’m perverted. But the cake was amazing.
All perversion aside, here’s the best ever fondant recipe. I will add Peppermint extract or Almond extract, or Rasberry or Orange, etc for taste. Just depends on what i’m creating it for 🙂
Marshmallow Fondant

Marshmallow Fondant

  • Prep 29 m

  • Ready In 8 h 30 m

Recipe By:Kiele Briscoe
“This is a very easy (and a little sticky at times) way to make a delicious fondant. It’s great on cakes, cookies, or just for your little ones to play with! Leftovers will save in a tightly sealed container for a few weeks.”

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 (16 ounce) package miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds confectioners’ sugar, divided

Directions

  1. Place the butter in a shallow bowl, and set aside.
  2. Place the marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on High for 30 seconds to 1 minute to start melting the marshmallows. Carefully stir the water and vanilla extract into the hot marshmallows, and stir until the mixture is smooth. Slowly beat in the confectioners’ sugar, a cup at a time, until you have a sticky dough. Reserve 1 cup of powdered sugar for kneading. The dough will be very stiff.
  3. Rub your hands thoroughly with butter, and begin kneading the sticky dough. As you knead, the dough will become workable and pliable. Turn the dough out onto a working surface dusted with confectioners’ sugar and continue kneading until the fondant is smooth and no longer sticky to the touch, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Form the fondant into a ball, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. To use, allow the fondant to come to room temperature, and roll it out onto a flat surface dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
