i cant seem to get fondant right..todays batch was better than other batches but still not quite right..
my recipie is
1 bag small mm
1/2 cup crisco (but added much more later as it still had the elephant skin texture)
4 tsp water
2tsp clear vanilla
when i make it it seems very dry even though i tried adding more water or crisco.. its texture is very greasy but breaks apart and crumbles easily and is not pliable. ..any pointers?
could it be the type of mms you use? I never use that much crisco, I only use it at the final stage for mixing with my hnds and also a thin coating on top once I have the consistency nI want, also, I use glycerin but not always depends on the mmf recipe I am using.
How much sugar are you using?
i used 2 lbs sugar..jet puffed mm..and what is glycerin? lol
Glycerin adds elasticity but as said, not all MMF recipes call for it. You can find it at the cake supply store.
I have also read that you should use the regular mms and not jet puffed but I don't know why, sorry, HTH
You said you are using 1 bag of marshmallows, but they come in 2 different size bags. Are you using the 10.5oz or the 16oz?
