Just wondering if anyone has tried making MFF with dairy creamer instead of regular milk or cream? I thought I would try a French vanilla flavour but I'd hate to mess up a whole batch. icon_smile.gif

I have tried non flavoured half and half and it turned out fine. French Vanilla sounds great.

I've used multiple different creamers. They all turn out great. Have fun experimenting!

Thanks for the replies. icon_smile.gif I'll definitely give the French vanilla a try.

I use the French Vanilla in almost every batch, yummy!

Now I'm really looking forward to trying it! icon_smile.gif

One more question - I made my first batch the other day using the 3 tblsp. measure, which I believe is wrong and should be 2 tblsp.? But the first batch seems to be fine. Now I'm not sure which recipe to use? icon_confused.gif

If you're speaking about the gelatin, I just use 3 packets, I've never measured it out.

The correct amount of gelatin is 3 Tbsp, which is not the same as 3 packets. But if 3 packets is workin' for ya, it's certainly easier than measuring it out.

The correct version of the recipe is here:

Thanks, artscallion, for posting the recipe link. I think there was some confusion recently over the correct recipe and I'm glad to see that I used the right one.

BTW, I use flavored non-dairy creamer every time. I haven't found a bad one yet. And it's nice to be able to coordinate the flavor with the cake/filling flavor. I LOVE MFF!!

I actually add the powdered coffeemate (vanilla caramel - sugar free) and it's fabulous. Also have used white chocolate pudding; cheesecake pudding, you name it. I haven't tried chocolate pudding yet but can't wait!

oops! actually, in checking back to another discussion of this, I see that the recipe I linked to (the one named "updated") is actually the incorrect one. The correct one is the one Frankyola linked to...

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-3663-Michele-Fosters-Delicious-Fondant.html

which calls for 3 packets (2Tbsp) of gelatin. Sorry to have confused things.

No problem. icon_smile.gif I ended up using 3 packets of gelatin (since they say they contain 1 tblsp. on the package but it must measure a little less) and the batch seems great. The French vanilla fondant smells fantastic!

How much of any of the above do you add to a batch?
