ADo you think the marshmellow fondant is better with or without corn syrup?? I've made it a several times without corn syrup and every time it comes out hard and I really suffered when I use it !! :/ so do you think I should use corn syrup ??

AIf you've tried it several times without corn syrup and it comes out hard, maybe you should try it with corn syrup and see what happens.

Tried it with or without corn syrup it works but with corn syrup it can be manageable. If it stays too long (that is stored not used) it will be hard and crumbly. You can add corn syrup little at a time to make it pliable. If it is still crumbly with little on it, throw it in the microwave for few seconds and knead it. Per Jessica Harris, powdered sugar brand and marshmallows make the difference. I still have to tried it though. She recommends and she's only using Kraft Jet puffed marshmallows and C&G powdered sugar.

Okay thank you :) but we don't have here these brands so I think I'm going to use corn syrup :)

AI use mmf, i make Rhondas mmf, I add 2 tbls to the batch. I can't remember if the original recipe calls for for 1 or 2 but I always add 2.

AI use 1tsp corn syrup with my mmf recipe. Comes out great. It's Wilton's recipe.

AI also add some gumpaste to any mmf if I'm going to make flowers/characters. About half to the amount of fondant. Won't stretch as bad. Also the more color you add the stickier it gets. Just add some powdered sugar til it gets back to a good consistency.
