Okay I have only used MMF, but after seeing everyone rave about the MFF I thought I might give it a try. Doesn't seem quite as simple lol but maybe I can do it! I have a question though, I do not have a kitchenaid mixer. icon_sad.gif maybe one day haha.... I do have a small stand mixer from walmart or something, but it has no dough hook. How should I mix it up?? Sorry for so many newbie questions tonight and TIA!

I mix my MMF by hand and by spatula. I grease the rubber spatula with shortening and stir and stir until there's so much sugar that I can stir no more. I start kneading it with my hands because at this point it is a dough and then add more and more sugar and keep kneading with my hands until done. You MUST grease your hands well with shortening (in between fingers and all).

Oh wait...did you "say" MFF? Sorry, I don't know what that means. I was referring to MMF. Oops.

MFF is Michelle Foster's Fondant...the recipe is on CC.

I've made MFF by hand and with my KA. Although it's easier with a KA, it's not mandatory. Just be sure you sift your PS otherwise you might end up with hard lumps. It's not as sticky as MMF but be sure to keep that shortening within easy reach.

Personally, I prefer the taste of MMF over MFF except when I make chocolate MFF (tastes just like a tootsie roll). I think MFF is more variable in terms of flavor.

Okay thanks! I wasn't sure if you could do it by hand or not. Oh really you like the mmf better? I like the taste of it pretty well, its just so sweet I thought I might try the other just to see....who knows! Thanks!
