I came across an idea on Pinterest for a cake that mixed white cake with a bit of red food coloring and Andes peppermint chips and chocolate cake all in the same round pan. I was inspired by this recipe and made it my own.
Despite looking at several stores, I was unable to find the Andes white peppermint baking chips, so instead I used the mints that are individually wrapped. Once unwrapped and chopped, they worked well.
Then I placed the marshmallows in a greased bowl, added the water and flavorings, then microwaved for 1 minute 20 seconds.
Once the time was up, I stirred it until no lumps remained.
I sprinkled cornstarch all over my cake board to keep the fondant from sticking to it.
Covered the cake with the fondant, smoothed it out, then cut off the excess.
