Hey everyone! Can anyone help me out with some measurements for a very small batch of MMF?
I haven't used this recipe yet, but did save it from a thread a couple of months ago. I hope it helps:
here is a recipe for a mini-batch of MMF
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 tbsp water
1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup powder sugar
Place marshmallows in a standard 1 cup measuring cup and push down and pack them in. Place in a microwave safe bowl and add the water. Put in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Just long enough for them to soften and puff up. Take out and stir with a spoon until it is combined well. At this point it looks kind of soupy. Then add the sugar and mix and fold until all is incorporated and it is no longer sticky. I take it out of the bowl when it gets to the point where most of the sugar is incorporated and I knead it in my hands. This takes roughly about 5-7 minutes. Take a fondant roller or a regular rolling pin and roll out just as you would Wilton's fondant. You can get this fondant almost paper thin and it also repairs well. It's cheap, easy to work with, and tastes great too.
***this is not my recipe - I got it from a woman named bunnywoman on w i l t o n.com, I just wanted to make sure that I gave proper credit***
Thank you very much...I'm making a cake for my Grandma's surprise 75th this weekend and for what I have planned I only need a small amount
