I don't have a lot of time tonight, but I wanted to share these cupcakes I made for my boss' dad's birthday! He's a big golfer so I thought these would be fitting. I'm sure I'm not the first person to make something like this, but I've had the idea in my mind for over a year and finally had a reason to make them! I made my first batch of golf balls using Oreo truffles dipped in white chocolate...but I couldn't make the little indentations. It looked like a ping pong ball. HA. So I ended up making some marshmallow fondant instead. It worked a lot better, but certainly didn't taste as good. I hope he liked them, I certainly had fun making them!
Here is the recipe I used for the fondant. It can be found on Cake Central.
Easy Marshmallow Fondant
- 1 16oz tub of Marshmallow fluff
6-8 cups of confectioners sugar
2 tsp of flavoring of your choice
paste colors (Optional)
- Empty contents of marshmallow fluff in large bowl. add flavoring and stir with spoon. If you desire to color the fondant add your desired color at this stage. Then add confectioners sugar two cups at a time and mix with spoon until no longer sticky, then place on large pastry board or mat lightly rubbed with vegetable shortening and knead until smooth and pliable. Roll out to desired size for covering cake.
