well I finally got the nerve (and not to mention the time) to try mmf. I found out that it is not that hard to do. I wrapped it in plastic very tightly and put it in the refridge for overnight. when I heated it the microwave for 10 seconds and kneaded it. It was rubbery (ms). Is it suppose to be that way? I made this cake for the cub scout's blue and gold banquet. the cake turned out wonderful. It was a strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream and strawberry mmf Hand painted fondant with a chocolate rocket and astronaut in the air. Our theme was out of this world. our den name is the Happy Hoppers, so I made a chocolate frog on a log. I am trying to upload some pictures. any advice advice would be helpful on my mmf. thanks!!!!!!!!!
Ive found my mmf to be rubbery if Ive added too much sugar. Adding some spray oil (sorry, dont know what its called in the states but its oil in a spray can) always fixes the problem.
Knead in some crisco when your first working with it. Helps alott.
thanks for the advice. I really did like how easy it was to make and the kids just loved. I am going to give it another try. once again thanks.
