This is my first time making MMF. I mixed it in the KA with the dough hook. After adding the called for amount of PS it tacky to the touch. Is that right?
Or does it need more PS? Thanks!

If it is still sticky add more powdered sugar. you can't really use sticky fondant.

If its tacky i would take some PS to it. Sprinkle it with PS and knead it in til its not tacky.

I only mix in 2/3 of my powdered sugar when using my KA for mmf. Then I knead in the rest to get it the right consistency and not kill my motor.

Can I knead in more PS after it has sat overnight or should I bust back into it?

Doreenre- Thanks for the tip on not killing my KA. I think that would kill my husband too!

I killed my 20 year old trusty KA making MMF. I haven't made it since. I'm still in mourning. icon_sad.gif

I make MMF by hand. It's a great upper body workout.

How true....

But, do you think the work out counter acts the calories I add eating the bittercream?

You let it rest overnight in a ziplock freezer bag. It firms up a bit then. You can add more ps tomorrow - it will just be harder to knead it in. It shouldn't be "sticky" to the touch - though it will feel a bit soft until tomorrow.
