My first time using fondant.

My son has requested an angry birds cake this year for his birthday. I have done some simple cake decorating but I'm a little nervous about making this cake. Any suggestions would be great. Also, I've read that marshmallow fondant tastes better but which would be better for a first time user?

I always make my own marshmallow fondant. It took a little while to get the consistency right, but after 3 years i've got it down! You can find recipes all over the internet, but it's basically a few cups of marshmallows and a few tbs of water. Melt in microwave. Then kneed in powdered sugar until you get the right consistency (It takes about half a bag or more). Let it rest under a glass bowl for a few minutes. You can add gel color at this point. Good luck!

are you planning on making or buying your fondant? I personally like butter cream fondant flavor and ease of use. my best advice is to keep the humidity and temperature controlled (not too hot/humid) you can use powdered sugar if it gets too sticky, but too much can make it crack. Good luck!
