OK...I am a die hard MMF fan....I make HUGE batches of it for when I need it. Until this weekend. I splurged because I had a wedding 3 hrs away for a family member. On the way, I purchased a 15 lb tub of Pettinice (at $64 it was cheaper than Satin Ice). I covered a 12, 10, 8 and 6 (5" layer) tiers and made about 25 roses and still have almost a half tub left! Oh, and it tastes like a smooth marshmallow...very mild!
I wanted to post this because before now, I couldn't see purchasing fondant because MMF was so cheap to make. Pettinice is not as forgiving as MMF so you have to work quickly but I'm fairly certain that I will no longer spend hours making fondant!
I estimated that much MMF (I flavor w/white choc) would have cost about $15 - maybe a bit more....It was work the extra $15!!!! I suggest everyone give it at least 1 shot!
thanks for the info!
