How is everyone doing with the machine? I've used the sugar sheets which have worked great. Expensive though. I've heard that the MMF doesn't work so well with the machine. Is this true? I have been using it and getting it very cold before using it. It's just OK. Should I be using reg. Fondant?
What is working best for everyone. I'm struggling a little bit.
Thanks for the help

I use mmf with a bit of gumpaste. Sometimes I get it cold, but I usually let it sit out for about 15 min. A 50/50 mix of wiltons fondant and gumpaste work best in my opinion.

MMF with a little CMC mixed in or a 50/50 mix with gp works fine for me. I don't freeze at all, find it gets a sticky mess, I leave out 15-20 mins before cutting
