I've been making mmf for a while but lately it seems like every batch is coming out with clumps of ps in it. I've had luck hiding them with different decorations but i'm making a cake next weekend that is very plain and won't be able to hide them. Why does this happen and what can I do to avoid it? By the way I did try sifitng once and I still had lumps. Has this happened to anyone else????? HELP!!!!!! icon_cry.gif

Are you letting it sit overnight before you use it? I think that is suppose to absorb the sugar.

I've noticed that a lot of people sift the sugar several times before making the fondant. Have you tried sifting more than once?

I find that if i add the ps when the marshmallows are to hot i get lumps.

i had this same problem yesterday. i was using target brand marshmallows and sifted PS and the fondant came out with these little hard lumps that would not go away 4 anything!!!! today i used name brand MM and it came out like it should. i dont know y but 4 me the name brand and off brand makes a huge difference.

I really would love to know myself why it happens. I have a whole batch of acne ridden mmf here too. I have never had this happen. I can't figure out for the life of me why it did it either. I didn't sift but I never do, I used brand name marshmallows, and powdered sugar.

It's happened to me before too. I honestly think it's when your marshmallows are too hot. If their too hot, let it sit and cool for a few minutes and then add your sugar. I know this is it, I haven't had any problems since! Good luck!
