I recently made my first batch of Marshmallow Fondant. Wonderful stuff, but it had a somewhat grainy texture when I tasted it. Any suggestions for a smoother texture?

If you think the fondant has a grainy texture, try kneading it a bit longer to allow the confectioners’ sugar to absorb additional moisture from the mixture. If you still find the Marshmallow Fondant is grainy, add a small amount of additional water. Add it a teaspoon at a time, kneading well after each addition and before you add more water – you don’t want the fondant to be too sticky.
