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 this. I just made Rhonda's Ultimate MMF for my daughter's birthday cake and it was wonderful!
Not sure what recipe you are using but I add Crisco to mine if it seems too dry and is cracking.
try not using all of the powdered sugar. I usually have at least a cup left. The recipe I use call for 8 cups.
i agree with saap1204, that's a great recipe to use. I would add some crisco too and maybe knead it some more before trying to roll it out again. hope that helps...
It sounds like you may have to much powdered sugar going in at one time. Try the crisco suggestions from the others. Don't give up!! Good luck!!
It helps if your MMF is a little warm. I nuke mine in the microwave for about 15 seconds. It really helps it to roll out nice and smooth. HTH
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.
Hi saap1204 can you share your recipe?
I will trying the other one but I would like to have Rhonda's Ultimate MMF. or can you tell me where can I get It?
Thank You so much
Rhonda's Ultimate MMF is in the recipe section here. I used either that one or the addendum to Rhonda's Ultimate MMF--different flavorings. I also added a few drops of Lorann's orange oil to mine to cut the sweetness--it also gives it a wonderful smell. I make mine in my KA. I put Crisco in the bowl and on the paddle attachment and eventually the dough hook. I knead it in there. I only used this for decorations for my daughter's cake (cupcakes, cookies since it makes so much) but I believe the additon of the corn syrup makes it a little more pliable.
I hope this works for you.
