    Make your own marshmallow fondant- cheap, easy to make and easy to colour. Just melt white marshmallows in the microwave for 5-10 secs, add food colouring and icing sugar until it comes together to form a solid but workable dough. You can chuck in microwave for a second to soften it, or add more icing sugar to harden it.

    Thanks for this, I'd never heard of it before but I googled it and found a good tutorial for it. http://seddy5.typepad.com/blog/2010/...w-fondant.html

    Great idea.

    That's not too bad. So you only needed 1kg of fondant? I would have all the cake ingredients. I've had some quotes to have one made and they range from $120 to $180. That's way two much for a family gathering for a 2nd birthday. If it was a 21st that would be different.
