I much prefer the flavor of MMF to that of storebought fondant, but I am wondering why when I make it, it is not as white as the storebought. It isn't dirty, I am very careful. It comes out of the mixer bright white, but when I knead it, adding in powdered sugar and crisco, it looses its brightness. Is there a way to make it whiter again or keep it white? I suspect it is from the crisco maybe warming up or changing as I knead it. Should I just airbrush it white? Would britewhite in the mmf fix it?

Wilton makes a bottle of whitener, perhaps you could add some of that to iticon_smile.gifBest of luck!!!

Wilton's Icing white works great on cookie glaze and icings but I've never tried it on fondant. I'm not sure if the fondant would dry correctly.

The longer you knead the MMF, the whiter it gets icon_biggrin.gif
