Yep...sure do! It is very easy to make and just as easy to work with. It starts out looking like just a mess but don't let that bother you. Once it is all mixed together, it is fantastic!

Hey, TC. I'd recommend just about anything Bunnywoman has posted on the Wilton forum re: marshmallow fondant. She knows of what she speaks. icon_smile.gif There is an ever-growing thread there titled "marshmallow fondant and tips for success" that is well worth reading. thumbs_up.gif Good luck. icon_smile.gif

HA! Tenderheart, I JUST finished reading that forum *whew, talk about all day reading..LOL* And yes, I am sold on Bunnywomans wisdom as well. As for the MM Fondant, everything I have read about it says it at least tastes better than Wiltons fondant (which I still have not tasted, I'm afraid icon_confused.gif

I used the MMF from this site for my "just for fun" cake. It worked beautifully and my son and nephew loved it!

I don't know which recipe is posted on this site. I use this one:

1-cup miniature marshmallows
1 Tablespoon water
A few drops of flavoring
About 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

Place the marshmallows in a large microwave safe container with the water. Gently melt to a smooth mixture, removing after a few seconds to stir. Add powdered sugar a little at a time until you cannot stir anymore in. Knead in more sugar until you have very soft pliable dough.

You don't need a double boiler - you can do it in the microwave. You'll do a great job on the cake! Just have a little faith in yourself - it will take you far! Can't wait to see the pictures.

Read the recipe I posted above in this thread. It involves a microwave, not a double-boiler.

Also, I don't own a double-boiler but I use one all the time!

I fit a metal bowl inside of my pot and wa-la! Double boiler!!! Don't waste money on things you may already own. Save money for more toys!!

In the top two pictures the bowl is a little bit bigger than the pot, but still works. In the bottom two, it fits perfectly, I can still use the lid but the bowl is not as deep. But you can see how both will work.


Good luck!!

I would have never thought about the mixing bowl and a pan.... I dont have a metal mixing bowl, but would a glass bowl do ok if its oven proof?

I'm not sure. I would guess it would be OK because you're not going to get it that hot and it's not sitting directly on the heat.

But I'm not 100% sure....

I'm a risk taker... I would try it.

Let us know!!
