Does it work out if I melt my MMF to make pured fondant for petit fours. Can I maybe just add a little more corn syrup or something or do I have to use a poured fondant recipe?

I've tried it before and it doesn't work.

Poured fondant is a totally different recipe than rolled fondant, but there are some good poured fondant recipes here in the recipe section.

Yes, as I've said before, CWR41, that mahalo video is one of my favorites! It makes me believe I might actually be able to make traditional petit-fours someday!

i agree totally different recipe. it's actually a lot trickier to make then you'd think.

i've tried to make the mahalo recipe several times and it does not come out. i suggest Martha Stewart's petit four icing.

Actually, I've never been able to find the mahalo recipe with the video - I was talking more about the technique, but thanks FromScratchSF for the tip about the Martha Stewart recipe.
