OK these are my questions:
1. how long ahead can I make the RKT mix and mold it?
2. if I cover the RKT mold with Buttercream icing and then fondant, then do I have to refrigerate it?
3. is it easier to mold if warmer or cool?
I would like to make a tower for my tangled cake this weekend. Thanks for all your help

1. I would venture to say weeks ahead; but mold it as soon as you make the RKT so it will form to your mold/shape while still a little warm.
2. I usually refrigerate before covering w/ MMF so that I have a nice firm shape to take the MMF (hint make sure your BC is smooth for a smooth covering of fondant).
3. definitely warm; but not hot!
HTH!

Thank you for your quick response. But I have one more question....is MMF the most common fondant used by cake decorators? As you can see, I'm a newbie and have never used MMF. I typically use Wilton or Duff's already made fondant. Is it difficult to make MMF. Thanks again.

I think a lot of us use SatinIce. Many of the "TV decorators" use Satin Ice.

Well, homemade MMF is another entire forum thread in itselficon_smile.gif. Some prefer making it; some don't. It really is a personal preference (to mess or not to mess with it!) IMHO, I save tons of $$ making my own MMF and it works for ME! But try it; you just might like it and find it as easy to work with as the store bought/ready made typeicon_smile.gif
