I started making my own marshmallow fondant about a year ago. It tastes so much better than the commercially made stuff, but I seem to have a lot of trouble rolling it out thin. It always sticks to my rolling surface, no matter where I roll it and it cracks a lot. I have tried all kinds of things to try to fix this problem. Does anyone else have this problem with this kind of fondant? Any ideas?
Which mmf recipe do you use? I heavily grease my granite counter & don't have a problem!
Are you adding all of the PS. I usually reserve 1 cup until after the rest period and then determine if I need to add it. Usually I don't. Knead the fondant really well with some shortening before you roll it out. I usually don't need very much PS when I roll it out and it doesn't stick. Make sure that you reposition it often when rolling to keep it from sticking.
You can also try adding 2 tbsp light corn syrup or glucose when making it. I also add 1 tbsp glycerine. These ingredients improve the texture.
Thanks for the tips! I was afraid to use too much shortening until I read your replies. I will try the glycerine and maybe the corn syrup. Thanks again so much!!
