Does anyone use MMF to cover wedding cakes or is that a "no-no" because it's not "gourmet" enough?
Just trying to learn before I start doing these kinds of cakes. I just did my first MMF covered cake and loved how easy it was to work with and inexpensive to make.
I've only made one wedding cake, but it was covered with MMF.
I have. I used Rhonda's Ultimate MMF. It turned out well, but it was a lot of fondant to make at one time. Now I cheat and mix half and half with Satin Ice. But, that's just because of time saving measures.
All the time....if you add some extracts to your mmf then it may seem a little more gourmet!
marshmallows have the basic essentials for making fondant...gelatin, sugar....you're just skipping the blooming the gelatin step basically...make some from square one then note the differences...not much....
one could make marshmallows from square one and do the same as with store-bought marshmallows...would that make mmf more 'gourmet-like'?
Absolutely you can use it!! You can flavor it any flavor you want to! (lorann oils really opens up the possibilities!)
thank you everyone....I am glad to hear this because I really like the stuff... I am going to check out those oils the OP mentioned...thanks again!
They carry the Lorann oils at Hobby Lobby
Michaels and Hobby Lobby also carry some of the Lorann Oils!
walmart carries them as well...in the craft dept. usually on a sidekick(small display attached at side of end of aisle shelving)
Most of my brides ask if I use premade fondant because they hate the taste. When I explain that I make my own with marshmallows, that gets them excited
All my brides are nervous about using fondant but when I explain to them how much better MMF is they are willing to try it. I've never had a complaint yet.
