I'm in the middle of making 180 flowers to top deserts that I'm making for a fundraiser. I'm using marshmallow fondant to make the decorations. It's super easy to make and it has a pretty decent taste also.
Since I have ulnar tunnal syndrome, I used my heavy duty mixer to make this. I greased the mixer bowl and paddle attachment heavily with crisco and mixed at low to blend. Then I switched to my dough hook; greased that up crisco and regreased the bowl. Then mixed until nice and elastic. Rolls out nicely and takes gel paste colors well too. Couldn't be simpler to do.
