Can you use a Kitchenaid stand mixer to knead fondant? If yes, at what speed would you use and for how long?

Oh, yes you can! Check out Michele Foster's great MFF recipe on this site. It gives very specific directions on how to do this. I just tried it myself for the first time this week and loved it! Turned out perfectly each of my 4 batches.

I always use my mixer due because I have RSD and it makes it hard to do something. I start out in stir then either 2 or 3 and let it run I also grease the bowl and the dough hook.

We watched Linda McClure's online video and she used a dough hook to mix the fondant...Go to www.creativedesignscakes.com.

Better be careful kitchen aid will not honor the warranty for using on fondant and other thick doughs. A few members in here have burned their motors out.

Very true. I had read about this also, so the second my KA starts to grumble a little I turn it right off. I'm just crossing my fingers, too. Maybe that's helping. icon_biggrin.gif
