My daughter's B'day cake

Today Nandhu turns 7 . She celebrated her Bday
with her friends last weekend and today she is
taking the cup cakes to her classmates..All the
cakes are of her favorite Pinkish..From the last
week onwards I am quite busy making cakes and
her favorite dishes..Long back itself she has been
asking for the castle cake..I made fondant at home
to make towers..
For Fondant
Mini Marshmallows - 1 cup
Water - 1 tblsp
Powdered sugar - 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cup
Shortening - 2 tblsp
How to make
Place the marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl and add water.
Microwave it for 20 seconds.Stir in between.The marshmallow
should soften and puff up.Now take out from the MW and stir with
a spoon until it is combined well.Add sugar 1/2 cup at a time and knead
well to form a soft dough.Use shortening when the dough is sticky
to handle..
I made this two days before and Store it a zip lock bags.
