i think im gunna have to use ready to roll fondant as my dd's party is sat , this was a less preservative way of doing it plus tasted mmmmmmm yummy
thx for your replies!!
I don't know if I will be much help as I haven't made MMF, but with my recipe it says, "let this stuff rest overnight.
It will be pretty stiff when you try to knead it again, but it can be microwaved for five to thirty seconds (start off with 5) and it will soften right up and be perfect for rolling out and playing with". So my suggestion would be to try microwaving it. Good luck!
It it's crumbly, it is too dry. You might have added too much powdered sugar. You can try to add a few drops of water and re-knead it. Also use shortening as you knead it as well. Since it tastes so much better than pre-made, it's worth the effort to make it.
