Hi can anyh body help me? i don't know what is wrong I try and try the MMF but when I am ready to roll it It start breaking and all I have is pieces of MMF. I do step by step what the recipe says but I can't get a nice circle to cover my cake.
Thank You in advance
What recipe are you using? There are a few variations of the MMF.
This is what I use: :
1 cup mini marshmallows, 1 tbsp water, 1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup powder sugar
Place marshmallows in a standard 1 cup measuring cup and push down and pack them in. Place in a microwave safe bowl and add the water. Put in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Just long enough for them to soften and puff up. Take out and stir with a spoon until it is combined well. At this point it looks kind of soupy. Then add the sugar and mix and fold until all is incorporated and it is no longer sticky. I take it out of the bowl when it gets to the point where most of the sugar is incorporated and I knead it in my hands. This takes roughly about 5-7 minutes.
Thank You so much for your response.
I have a very similar problem and use the same recipe. I have tried it a couple of different times and finally just quit. It's like it dries out too quickly and then it breaks all up when you are trying to put it on the cake.
So basically, I am asking for an answer to the very same question. CC people, help us!
I only made it a couple of times, and had the same problems. I am a little leary on trying it again. Maybe I can learn a couple of tricks too!
That seems like a lot of sugar for the amount of marshmallow and water. I use a full pound of marshmallows and 3 Tablespoons water to 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 pounds powdered sugar. These portions work well for me.
Eeek - only 1 cup MM's?
My recipe for MMF
Grease microwave safe bowl
16 oz bag mini MMs
2 T water
**melt in micro 1 min, stir**
1 t popcorn salt, or grind your own salt in coffee grinder.
1 dram of LoRann butter flavor for a fabulous BC flavor, or 1 to 2 teaspoons of another flavoring.
Food coloring, if needed.
Gradually stir in
2 lbs PS - start kneading when it gets too hard to stir.
Let rest a few hours. Soften in microwave a few seconds at a time, knead, roll.
When your MMF gets to dry and starts breaking apart or crumbling, just add a little bit of water until it gets to a good consistency. Thats all I do and it works really good!
Thank You so much for all your help I will try againg and I will let you guys how was it.
Thank you guys again for your help you are the BEST!!!!!!!!
