Hey I'm planing on making a cake this weekend for my boyfriend using MMF to cover it, but its my first time and i've never made of tasted MMF before! Just wondering if MMF is too sweet? The idea of marshmallows and powdered sugar mixed together makes my teeth hurt lol

That depends, do you like circus peanuts (the orange candy ones, not peanuts from a circus), becasue that's what it tastes like. I happen to LOVE circus peanuts and personally don't think it is any sweeter than icing.

Personally I find it a little sweet but many people love it. It is much tastier than some of the prepared fondants available. There are some recipes that call for lemon juice instead of water to cut down on the sweetness.

I like Rhonda's ultimate MMF (in recipes) - the lemon in it really cuts the sweetness.

Too sweet for what? Eating a pound at a time, sure.

It's made of sugar. It's going to be sweet!

I also dissolve some salt in my water before adding it to the marshmallows. With the addition of butter and vanilla extracts this makes the MMF taste like butter cream AND it cuts down on the sweetness level.

Love, love, love MMF. And (IMHO), compared to regular fondant--there is no comparison!

I once asked my son this question and he looked at me like I was nuts. I think it is really good.
