Thanks for clearing up the acronyms.. Some I am very familiar with and some I wasn't quite clear on and was afraid to ask.

Heehee, I like that even better! That is ok, on some sites it means Designated Husband, so I think you can still use DH and think Dumb Husband, haha!

oh i definatelly recommend using mmf!! i loved it. it was my first time with it this wkend and i have to admit that i think i might have fallen in love. i was s excited b how easy it was to make- use and eat right off the cake!! o need peeling it off like store bought fondant. and tastes like circus peanuts....not cardboard.. haha not to even mention the money i saved by making it and not buying it..i saved about 16.oo for a dbl batch compared to a large box of wiltons fondant. icon_biggrin.gif

  • could some one tell me how to make mmf and how to use mmf. you don't know how long i have been fighting to figure out what mmf was. thanks. [list=]
