The Miracle of Marshmallow Fondant

Who knew fondant was so simple?

Simple. As in, very few ingredients. Not to be confused with easy, as in, whips up in a flash. This very special cake was made for a very special baby. Until 3am the night before her party, at which point I took great satisfaction in smashing the wobbly-legged ewes that were supposed to adorn the corners. The inside is a dense, moist and oddly pale chocolate buttermilk cake

I had a bunch of fondant left over, so I made another for our election party.

Lest we forget....presidents don't change the world, people do.
