I bought myself a Kitchen Aid mixer (Profesional 600 series) for Christmas. I had in the past made MMF by kneading it by hand... I'd like to be able to use my mixer to do the dirty work for me.. has anyone does this?? Any suggestions? Helpful hints? Thanks!
I've only made MMF with a mixer. I watched a great video on YouTube that showed me how.
I have that same mixer and it's WONDERFUL for making MMF. Just make sure you pour the marshmallows in first. And if you want colored MMF, color the melted marshmallows before pouring into the bowl. But don't add the entire amount of sugar. You'll still need to knead in the last little bit to ensure that it's not too dry. Good luck! You'll do great!
yup! grease up the bowl and the dough hook with some shortening first.
here are some of my pics making MMF in my artisan kitchenaid:
Oh your life will be so much easier now!! Yes grease up the bowl and hook good!!
I love using my Kitchen Aid for making MMF. It is so much easier and cleaner. I usually melt the marshmallows and spray the bowl to prevent sticking and mix with the dough hook. I don't put all of the powdered sugar. I take it out and knead the last little bit by hand.
Thanks ladies for your input!! I can't believe how much quicker this is!!! It literally took 20 minutes from start to end... (greasing the bowls to wrapping the fondant up!) UNBELIEVABLE!!! This Kitchen Aid is going to make my life so much easier.
I also have to 600 series and would not make MMF any other way.
