I made bows from MMF before and had some problems with breakage. I believe someone suggested making them from gum paste or a mixture of gum paste/fondant. Do you just mix them up separately and then knead them together?
Which makes the better bow?
Hi I prefer to use gumpaste for bows as it dries quicker than fondant and keeps its shape, but I don't know what mmf is sorry, we don't us it in England so i'm not sure if thats better. HTH
Hi, I would use gumpaste only. But I know lots of members use fondant and gumpaste 50/50. You can mix store bought gumpaste and fondant. That is much easier I think.
lynseyg2002, MMF means Marshmellow fondant. You can use marshmellow to make fondant. You will be able to find recipes for that in the recipe Index.
I have a pic in my photos in which I used a fodant/gumpaste mix. I like the hardening of the gumpaste but the nicer "flow" of the fondant. This was the best of both worlds!
