OK, maybe a stupid question, but what is MMF ?
And what are differences between MMf and normal fondant (or NO differences??)

I made a cake, and I had a problem with my red (and black) fondant. This fondant was prepacked and VERY sticky. I used a mold and I had to clean it by hard. If you touch this fondant, your hand is coloured.

So.... IS this MMF or is this very low quality?????

MMF stands for Marshmallow fondant. I think it is slightly different to normal fondant and from what I've seen is something you make by hand - I don't think it's sold premade but I could be wrong.

Was the fondant pre-coloured? If so, I have had this problem before too. They have to add so much colour that it makes the fondant sticky. I found that mixing it with white fondant made it firmer and kept the colour for me.

Yes, the fondant was pre-coloured....
Red and black are the *difficult* colours

Thanks for the help, but 1 question..
changes the colour? (Lighter, darker?)

If you add white, it should make it lighter but I didn't find enough of a change for me to notice - it was just easier to work with. But I'm in Australia so I assume I have different brands of fondant.

if you can find minature marshmallows, use 1 reg bag, 2 teaspoons or water and one lb of confectioners sugar (powdered sugar), put mm and water in micro 30 second at a time till melted and grease up crisco,, your hands, start adding sugar and mix pull, twist, and use crisco while mixing, i put mine in smaller pkgs 3, crisco your ball i flatten mine out and rub out side of ball and saren wrap, use crisco when working when needed, just thought you might want to see how much cheaper it is to make it. i don't care for pre-made especially wilton, just a little info.

What are the best brands in your country?

Bakels is the best brand. It's a bit firmer, super easy to work with and it tastes fantastic!
