Does MMF dry as hard as fondant? Does it require more time to dry hard, less time? I'm dying to give this a try for flowers and bows but not sure of the results.
MMF does not dry hard...It stays kinda like tootsie roll texture. You cannot do anything but flat flower cut outs with MMF. It will not dry hard. The bows will not stand up or dry even after days....(don't ask how I know!! Hee hee!) What I do is do the covering in MMF and the sugarflowers in either gumpaste or chocolate plastic. The bows in either Wilton fondant or gumpaste
Try chocolate plastic if you haven't before...You can cover a cake with it, it tastes good and makes nice roses...
Hope this helps.
Have you tried gumpaste? Gumpaste is really good for flowers. I think there are some recipes on here or on the internet.
