I am just seeing all the posts about Michele Foster's fondant and am wondering how it compares to Rhonda's Ultimate MMF. Any thoughts?
I am obviously thinking of just making a batch myself but wanted to know if anyone had found any differences in the way they roll out, smooth, are applied, or store.
Anyone who has tried both have a preference for one of the other and why?
I've made both a few times (I only purchase fondant now - too much work!!). IMHO Michele's tastes better and is more consistent in texture. It rolls out just fine. I found MMF to be a little touchy - sometimes its OK, but usually it was dry and I had to work it too much. Could very well have been the way I made the MMF.
I recently started making Michele's fondant, and I really like it alot. The consistency is very nice and it tastes really good. I have used MMF many times and I hate it , it is very inconsistent and is not as nice to work with as Michele's. I also have used Satin Ice, and Fondx, both are nice to work with, but I don't do that many cakes, so I try to save where I can. However, when I need a dark colored fondant, I order premade.
i have used both and i prefer Michele's fondant. it's easy to work with and quite consistent for a homemade recipe. MMF gave me different results each time.
Okay, I made my first batch of Michele's today so I'm going to try to color it/use it in about half an hour.
So far, these are my thoughts: Obviously a bit more time-consuming to make but one batch makes a bunch so that's not really a huge deal.
Upon tasting, would say that it's far too sweet but maybe I could just add more salt. Perhaps I left out salt. Can't recall. Doh.
Consistency looks great, pliability looks great. Will post more after working with it.
it might be too sweet but you can roll it out very thinly so it won't be too sweet on cake.
