Hello, I am about to make my first batch of marshmallow fondant and I was wondering if it wil harden and hold its shape so i can make 3D decorations. Does it handle similar to rolled fondant? Thanks!!

Plain mmf sometimes takes a few days to dry. Most here will do 1/2 gumpaste and 1/2 fondant. Kinda depends on the figures. Sometimes you can put them in oven with just the light on and it will dry them a little faster.

I have used MMF for figures if you check out my pics I made the mini pumpkins out of MMF, they did take quite a few days to dry hard though, the fall leaves that I did I used 50/50 MMF and Gumpaste, with the 50/50 its going to dry quicker but still be good to work figures with.

good luck! icon_smile.gif

Personally I love Wilton Fondant for decorations. It dries like a brick.

Yeah Wilton Fondant works good for figurines... but it really tastes pretty gross.. so if you use it for figurines instead of covering a cake with it that is your best bet!!! thumbs_up.gif

To bad it tastes so gross. Great for making figures but i prefer mmf on my cakes.

From my limited experience, I'll tell you that, as was said earlier, 1/2 fondant with 1/2 gumpaste or the Wilton fondant are the best ways to make figurines. The mmf may not hold its shape as well as you might hope. hth
