I am wanting to make Marshmallow Fondant and it suggests using the KitchenAid paddle to mix. I have a sunbeam mixer with the regular mixers and bread dough hooks. Which do I use or will be able to make it?

Thanks for your help, I'll need it!

We don't use either. Melt the MM in the microwave and dump on the counter.

I agree with ddaigle...saves having to wash a (very sticky) mixer bowl and a paddle/blade etc! I find I waste too much PS when I mix it with my KA.

I don't use a mixer either. Too afraid I'll ruin my KA. I Tried once, but pulled out the fondant quickly.

Again, I agree. I recently got a KA 600 Pro and thought I would be able to make MMF in it. Didn't go well. I differ from the others though. I Crisco a big pyrex bowl and melt the marshmallows in that, then start to mix in the bowl, with a big spoon (also Crisco'd). I don't dump it onto the counter until it's a sticky dough.

I just posted how much I hate MMF. It's not pliable harder to color than store bought fondant and almost always comes out too dry. My kitchenaid will love me for buying it from now on. It's too hard on the poor thing. I can see where mixing it on the counter is better but still just buy it. This way you have less mess and you always know you are working with perfect fondant.

I used my Sunbeam once, what a mess!! I mix in a large bowl until the sugar is combined then knead on the counter.
