I use marshmallow fondant and love it and really inexpensive, 1 bag con sugar, 1 regular bag minature marshmallows, if you use the large bag it doesn't work out weight wise, 2 or 3 teaspoons water, put water and mm's in plastic bowl and micro at 30 second intervals, stir until all are melted, be sure and grease up your hands, and surface, i just do my mixing in the bowl, put in about 1/2 bag con. mix then the other, you have to twist, pull, and squeeze to mix well and will probably need more crisco on your hands, i flatten mine out rub with crisco and wrap in plastic wrap, i use gel to color start with a little, pull, twist, to mix. if you put it in the fridge, you can warm in micro but be careful i do it in smaller amounts, i've never had a problem with this recipe, also use crisco when working with it if you need to. hope you like this one good luck

I too use MMF, recipe found on CC. It takes the large 2lb bag of sifted powdered sugar, but don't use it all, it is kind of by feel, if it is sticky you need to add more sugar. I never have to use the entire bag of sugar. HTH!

I use Michelle Fosters recipe here in CC. You have to make it up at least a day in advance. It freezed fantastically. Very easy to work with.

Michelle Fosters mmf is good but if you don't have a stand mixer you can try Rhonda's Ultimate mmf it's good too.I tried a few different versions of mmf before I finally decided which one I liked best.For me plain mmf was too sweet,I had to dirty up my mixer with Michelle's,which I hate cleaning and Rhonda's you have to add a few more ingredients for toning down the sweet,which I found I like best.They are all pretty simple to make and cheaper than buying it premade so I would just suggest try a few and see which works best for you too!Happy caking icon_biggrin.gif

I just use the really basic recipe

The only thing that I do differently is to add a bit of flavor...clear vanilla extract, lorann oils, etc...
