There is a white white you can add to it. It's a Wilton product. Im not at home right now to look at it and give you the exact name, sorry.

also, (I have read this but haven't experienced it) make sure you don't over nuke your marshmallows, I've heard that can give them a darker color. And of course, if you're using any flavorings, make sure they're clear. icon_smile.gif

I melt my marshmallows over low heat on the stove (just until melted) and use clear vanilla. I get white-white MMF every time so you can always try that if you can't find the white color at Michael's. icon_smile.gif

Michele Foster's MFF is much whiter than the MMF. It uses glucose rather than marshmallows.

I make it.

Here is the recipe that I use. I have made some subtle substitutions.

1 tbsp geletin
1/4 cup water

1/2 cup glucose
1 tbsp glycerine
2 tbsp shortening
1 tsp clear flavouring of your choice

7-8 cups powdered sugar

I put the water into a glass measuring cup and sprinkle on the geletin. I let it sit for about 3-5 minutes and then microwave it for about 10 seconds. Then I add the glucose or white cornsyrup, glycerine and shortening. I microwave it for about 1 minute and stir any shortening that has not melted until it has all mixed in.

Put 6 cups of powdered sugar into your kitchenaid mixer or a large bowl and pour in the liquid while it is mixing on low.

I put a cup of powdered sugar on the counter and pour the mixture on it. I then knead it until smooth. If it is really sticky and soft I add a bit more sugar.

At this point I make it into a ball, cover it with shortening and let it rest. After several hours or the next day I knead it again. If it is really sticky I knead in a bit more powdered sugar. I don't use all of the 8 cups very often.

I find with the use of water and shortening the fondant comes out whiter than the MMF.
