Ahh, I praise all of you who can do it without issues, I usually use it for accents, etc. I covered the middle tier of a TT cake with it, and it wrinkled, tore, gave me all sorts of issues. Then I covered the other two tiers in SI, much easier to handle, even though I tore that in a couple of places thanks to my fingernails......but, I did it, my first tiered cake covered all in fondant. The birthday girls liked it- I can see so many flaws, but turned out good. The best thing was my DH is so creative, suggesting marshmallow for the alternating ball around the cake, which I think turned out pretty cool! He's so creative! So, here's the piece of work here.....

You did a great job! I find it is easier to use the MMF if I warm it in the microwave first, then roll it on a vinyl mat and flip it over on the cake. All the fondant cakes in my pics are MMF. That is a very cool cake!

Agreed, TT's sound really tricky, so congrats on making this one look great! And I really like the contrast of shapes that the marshmellows gave, very cool. icon_smile.gif

I have found that MMF is a lot harder to use then store bought. Satin Ice taste pretty good. I know its more expensive but its worth not having the headache.

Your cake looks awesome. Great idea to use the marshmallows for trim. I would have never thought of that! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that hates using MMF. I ALWAYS find it difficult to work with. I make Michele Foster's Fondant and it is so easy to work with and taste great.
