    Awesome cake! I hadn’t heard of marshmallow fondant. Does it taste better than the traditional fondant? Would you mind sharing where you go the recipe from? Thanks!

    @WAM: Tastes like chewier buttercream frosting! Definitely better than traditional fondant. I got the recipe from a YouTube video. I'll post it on here.
