nuking it for just a few seconds definitely makes it really easy to knead

I suppose you could but I never do. When I get ready to use it I knead about a handful at a time until I have kneaded as much as I'm going to use then I knead it all together.
It's just easier to knead by doing it this way. Most of the people that have had a problem with MFF have not been kneading it enough.

I love this stuff myself. It's "hands down" the best for taste and workability. It's the only fondant I ever use.

When you make it just be sure to strain the liquid. I didn't do that once and ruined my batch.

I've never weighed it but I'd say 3 1/2-4 pounds. It makes quite a bit but keeps very well if wrapped in plastic wrap inside an airtight container. I can cover three 2 tiered cakes with one batch and have enough for the cut outs and such for the cakes.

Personally I HATE mmf. I have made it several times and have never had good results. It taste ok but it's just not a very good quality fondant as far as I'm concerned. I wish I could make mmf that I could actually use because it's so inexpensive to make.

i love the results i get with the mmf i never get cracks or folds it work really good and people love it especially my 2 year old. i just don't like the fact that i have to always reheat it.

I think once you make Michele's recipe you'll see what I mean about the quality of fondant. Maybe I'm just spoiled to her recipe.
