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.

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.
