I'm new at cake decorating and need some help. I've used store bought fondant to make 3D figures and it worked very well. However, in order to save money I've been making my own fondant. The MMF is easy to make but it's so sticky and I'm having a hard time making my characters ( after a while they start to sag and droop). Does anyone have any advice? The recipe I've been following contains marshmallows,water, corn syrup and confectioners sugar. Thanks for the help!
I mix in some gum paste and that seems to take care of the issue.
What Goreti said.

I agree. Add some Tylose powder to the mmf to help stiffen it up a little bit and make it easier to work with. It sometimes helps to support your figures with paper towels, foil, parchment paper or pieces of foam until they dry enough to hold their shape. I took a peek at your pics. Your figures are cute.
Great I'll try both... Thanks so much for helping me and for the nice comments about my figures
