Everytime I make MMF, it is never pure white. It has a off white tint to it. What is the best way to get my MMF wedding white? Or if I spray white luster dust over the MMF would it be white enough? TIF.

What recipe are you using? Are you adding vanilla or other flavors to it? Those might affect the color.

The more you knead it, the whiter it looks.

As long as there's nothing on the cake table that's a brighter white than the cake, it will look white when it's all done.

I use clear vanilla & butter flavoring. I think the problem is the marshmallows becuase they aren't a true white color. I do have the Americolor white but it seems really runny & changes the consistency of my MMF.

I've notied an off-white color when using store brand marshmallows. It seems if I use the Kraft Jet Puffed brand it is whiter to me.

I have seen in a lot of MMF recipes where they specifically state not to use Jet Puffed Kraft marshmallows because they don't melt as well as other brands. Is this not true?

I have exactly the same problem. I wish there was a clear answer.
I also notice that some colors affect the MMF such as black and red. It seems to get dry and crumbly. BUT the post is about white....I'm interested if the Wilton white makes a difference or not...? Anyone tried it?

I add Americolor brite white to my MMF--it gets whiter, but never absolutely white. Even Satin Ice purchased fondant is kinda off white...

I just bought the Duff airbrush specifically for dark & bright colors like red & black. I used it yesterday for the first time & worked great!

I tried using marshmallow fluff once instead of marshmallows, and the fondant was a nice white color. icon_biggrin.gif
