It turned out great and tastes great! Although its a little sticky so I think it needs a bit more powdered sugar? But boy I should of listened when I read about 'sugar bombs'! There is powdered sugar everywhere, it looks like it snowed in my kitchen and I look like the abominable snowwoman!

Glad it worked for you, Becky. Yeah the PS gets everywhere. Amazing all the places you find it a week after you've made the fondant! LOL!

I LOVE MMF! It's so easy to make. If it's too sticky, a little powdered sugar helps. I also roll mine out on a thin layer of white shortening. It keeps it from sticking to the counter and I also put shortening on my hands.
I haven't read about "sugar bombs", but I totally know what you mean!!!

Glad you liked it...I was hooked after my first time too because of how easy (although messy) and inexpensive it was to make. And you're right, if it's a bit sticky it just needs a bit more PS kneaded in.

Do make sure to let it rest at least 2 hrs so any little lumps that may be left have time to dissolve. I tend to use just a touch less PS when making it, before letting it rest. I then knead more in when I need to use it and I find it helps me gauge better how much PS I'll need so it doesn't end up too dry.
