I'm making a baby shower cake and need brown fondant. Decided to buy dark chocolate fondant from Satin Ice and mix w/white to make a lighter brown. I was planning to make MMF for the white and other color I need but was wondering how it would be mixing MMF w/Satin Ice. Any suggestions/input? I'll be making little cowboy boots, cowboy hat and pony so was planning to use tylose or mixing modeling chocolate. Any feedback? I read somewhere about mixing w/modeling chocolate.

Angela, of SugarSweets, says something in her blog about mixing it with modeling chocolate.

"PS - You can also do a 50/50 mix of modeling chocolate with MMF to do figures or flowers with. The fondant makes the modeling chocolate a little bit stiffer - the possibilities are endless."

She uses MMF a lot, but lately has been doing figurines in modeling chocolate accented with fondant. Here are some links:

I do not think she uses Satin Ice at all, though.

Thanks for the tips! I think I'm just going to make my own w/the modeling chocolates and get the color I want and taste (bonus...and save $$). You were most helpful. Irene
