Well finally I tried out the MMF last weekend & needless to say It was a success. I followed the recipe with no problems & I will definitely continue to use this stuff.....It's simply awesome to work with....cheap & saves on time
Isn't it fun luvbaking?? and it tastes really good to me too .. and yes, very cheap.. I can buy a bag of marshmallows for under $1 and the same w/confectioner's sugar .. so it's very cheap to make
I also made the MMF and absolutely loved it!! It was easy and cheap to make. Plus it tastes so much better than the Wilton pre-made stuff. I even added some buttervan to the recipe. DH and kids both loved it. To me, it reminds me of working with playdough as a child. I gave each of my kids some of the MMf to play with while I was working on a cake. They would roll it out, cut it, and then eat it!!
It is fun to work with aslate.. I remember when I first thought about working with fondant.. I was so intimidated by it .. then after I did it once, I was hooked lol.. I learned about MMF here and I haven't looked back .. I just love the stuff .. I know it has a different texture and some people may not like it, but I really like working with it .. not at all hard to work with to me .. really easy to do
I love MMF too... Great stuff to work with...
I just made a little pink piggie with some...lol..
I'm convinced...I'm going to try making MMF and begin playing with fondant, do you think it's too intimidating for a first try? Should I learn on Wilton fondant first? Just curious.
Can you use MMF for a wedding cake? Does it hold up the same as regular fondant in heat etc...??? I think I am going to try it soon! Also, I have to make some dummy cakes and I was going to use fondant but can I use MMF??
Just jump in there and try the MMF loree001 .. It's much, much cheaper than the Wilton fondant ... if it starts to get hard when you're working with it, you can just pop it into your microwave oven for 10-15 seconds and it'll soften right up ... just remember that the recipe from here states you need to use a 2 pound bag of confectioner's sugar and one entire bag of marshmallows (16 ounces).. sometimes it may be a little dry and sometimes it may be a bit sticky .. if too dry, add about a 1/4 teaspoon of water at the time until it moistens somewhat... it too sticky, just add small amounts of confectioner's sugar until it loses the stickiness ... good luck!!
I used it on a wedding cake and it work great!
Actually I have'nt had the time to take the wilton classes yet so in the meantime I expreiment on my own. Gotta tell you this stuff is great for people like myself. For those who have'nt tried It maybe you should, trust me like the other ladies say you'll never look back. Not only is it easy to work with but also looks very pretty.
