Sunken Treasure- Pirate Octopus Cake

This cake turned out super cute. The octopus was made from homemade marshmallow fondant. It is so much fun to work with homemade fondant plus the added benefit of the delicious marshmallow taste.

However, the only downfall is that it is really challenging  to use when making figurines and other shapes that need to hold their shapes.As you might have noticed the Octopus’ tentacles flopped over.  I am not sure how to make it harden better.  If you have any suggestions drop me a comment.  I am not sure if adding meringue power would do the trick but who knows…
