I always use MMF but it seems to be too soft. It tears easily and never sets up. What can I do? I read somewhere to do a 50/50 of fondant and gumpaste. Does this change the taste of it? And finally, I have a cake to do next week and I am supposed to do quilting on one of the tiers. Do I quilt the fondant before I cover the cake or after? Please help!
I don't usually work with MMF, but mixing it with gumpaste will change the taste of it, I bet someone who works with it a lot can help with consistency. Quilting is usually done after it is on the cake. Good Luck!
I wouldn't suggest mixing it with gum paste--blech.
You can mix it with Wilton fondant and get a product that tastes great and works very well--best of both worlds.
Yes, you quilt after the fondant is on the cake.
