icon_biggrin.gif Hello, I just have a few questions and I hope somebody can help me. What is bettercream? Does anyone have the recipe? And, what is MMF?
thank you, I'm sorry if I sound dumb, I'm just a beginner in cake decorating and I love it that is why I want to learn more.

I myself am not sure what better cream is but MMF is Marshmellow fondant. There is great recipe for MMF on this site in the recipe section. Welcome to the wonderful world of cakes.

Hi and welcome to the addiction well Bettercream is a frosting that you buy and you whipped it's really good not sweet really yummy plus you can add any flavor that you want. MMF it's marshmallow fondant you can make it with marshmallow and powder sugar.

BETTERCREAM IS A LIGHTER FROSTING. BUTTERCREAM IS A SWEETER WEDDING TYPE FROSTING. YOU CAN PURCHASE BETTERCREAM (MADE BY RICH'S) AT SAM'S CLUB. IT IS ALREADY WHIPPED. YOU NEED TO ASK FOR IT AT THE DELI COUNTER!!!! IT IS CHEAPER AND GOES A LONG WAY. ($17.00) OR YOU CAN BUY IT AT GORDON FOOD SERVICE. YOU HAVE TO WHIPP THAT. HOPE THAT HELPS, AND I HOPE THERE IS A STORE NEAR YOU!!!! KELLY

There is no recipe for Rich's Bettercreme. icon_sad.gif

It can be purchased either pre-whipped in a large Ready-To-Use bucket or frozen in 1 qt. containers (that look just like paper milk cartons) which require whipping to use.
