So I finally worked up the nerve to make MFF. It's harder to make than MMF but its going ok. Then, I put the damp paper towel on the mixer to stop the suger dust and turned around. (Does anyone know where this is going?) When I turned back around, my paper towel was gone! I guess that counts a a minor disaster. I would cry if it weren't so funny.

Hey that sounds like my Silpat: reinforced. I'll bet you it will go on your cake without tearing now! icon_lol.gif

On a serious note, it's a good warning. I have put a paper towel over my mixer too, from time to time. What are we thinking? Why don't we use a proper dish towel??

lol this happened to me once!! Except I had used my paper towel for greasing the bowl and hook attachment and i guess I either left it in there when I poured the hot marshmallow mixture in or it somehow managed to drop in there.. I didnt notice until I started rolling out the fondant and there were all these little fiberous 'hairs" poking out when i cut it..

Good for you trying MFF. I love that stuff. SO sorry that you had the paper towel accident though. But thanks for sharing your funny story thumbs_up.gif

Ouch! I know how you must feel. MFF is a bit of a chore to have to re-do. I've used MFF for ages but just recently tried MMF. Now I'm battling with myself between MMF which is simple and tasty or MFF which takes some time & effort but is incomparable in deliciousness.

Really? I cannot get MMF to work for me. I've made it several times and I've never had very good results. Certainly no comparision to MFF. Any tips? icon_lol.gif

Maybe it's the recipe. I know there are differences...some use glycerine, some don't, etc. I use this one...

The pouring shield works well to keep the dust level down. Since it is made for the Kitchenaid, you don't have to worry about it getting sucked in. Also, the little chute is nice to help pour ingredients in.

I found a recipe for MMF online one day....(Peggy's MMF recipe) and have had great results with it. I tried it because it was the easiest recipe to make & I was a beginner, so the easier the better icon_lol.gif
Now that I have more experience under my belt I'm looking to experiment more. I assume MFF is another kind of fondant, but what do the letters stand for?
Marshmallow ? Fondant.
I did a search on CC for a MFF recipe, but there were none listed. Does anyone have one they like & will share with me?
Thank You in advance icon_biggrin.gif

MFF stands for Michele Foster's Fondant

that IS funny... I buy the flour cloths (5 for $4 @ walmart) they are HUGE and I can wrap it around my whole mixer and I have the big KA 6 QT!!! I wrap it and tie a knot at the back and it stays there... I just lift and add sugar , specially with SHaron's BC.... it's the best way....

but I must say I can picture it being eaten up by the mixer and it's funny hehehehe.... now I know what NOT to do lol

thanks for sharing icon_smile.gif
