Guys,

I am thrilled. I just made my first batch of MMF following the tutorial listed here on CC. I started the batch in my Heritage Mixmaster and then transferred the mixture to my sanitized table of course to finish the kneading process. I think that it turned out great. I wrapped it tightly (2x) in plastic wrap and put it in a ziplock bag. I am going to let it rest and try putting it on a cake tomorrow. Wish me luck. I will post the results hopefully great tomorrow. If it turns out disasterous I will still post pics so you guys can let me know what to do different next time.

This could be the start of something serious!

Let us know how it goes!

Here are the final results. I was thrilled as this is my first time making MMF and decorating a cake with it. Practice makes perfect. I had trouble with the fondant ribbon around the base and stretching it to make sure it was smooth. I hid those areas the best that I could.

Congrats! I am going to be trying MMF soon and have heard that the brand of marshamallows makesa big difference. May I ask, what type did you use?

Thanks!

Thanks, Benisha! I at least need to make some MMF as my daughter wants to start making 3-d figures for cupcakes, etc., and this looks to be the way to go.

I, too, had great results using MMF for the first time. It was my first fondant every!! I used the alternative MMF recipe on this site under recipes. Here are the results.

Just a note. If you are going to use MMF to make figures you either need to mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with gumpaste OR mix in 1/2 tsp. of tylose powder in it so that it will harden.
