I just discovered this website and I hope you can help.
I want to try my first batch of fondant:
1.) Which is better-MFF or buttercream fondant?
2.) Do I make one big batch and break it down into smaller balls for the different colors?
3.) Is it possible to over knead the fondant?
4.) Any tips for a first timer?
Thanks so much!
1) MMF is probably better. Actually I don't think there really is a buttercream fondant - unless it's rolled b'cream - that's the closest.
2) Yes you make one batch then color it as needed.
3) Over knead? I doubt it. You would get way too tired before it got that bad. The more you knead fondant the softer, easier to handle it gets.
4) have fun! Play with it. It is so similar to using pie dough or PlayDough. Roll it out and cut shapes; make small critters; form scrolls etc etc to get the feel of it.
