Hello everyone!I am new to MMF, i just made my first batch earlier tonight! I'm gonna let it sit wrapped overnight and see how it looks tomorrow. Tomorrow I want to make a bow out of the MMF to place on top of the cake. Can I add gum paste to the MMF to make sure the bow dries hard? I didn't know if this would have a same outcome as with store bought fondant, so i decided to ask the experts!Thanks in advance for the help!Meg
I was once told that if my buttercream icing uses water and crisco it doesn't have to be refrigerated (the other ingredients are: meringue powder, confectioner sugar, salt, vanilla)If i use milk instead of water i need to refrigerate the icing, but what if i use regular butter instead of crisco and use water, do i have to refrigerate the icing?

Hello!I am making a cake for this weekend. The cake will be carrot cake and i have heard cream cheese icing goes very well with carrot cake. But i was wondering is cream cheese icing white? or does it have a yellow tint to it because of the butter? If it does can i use the wilton White-White to make it whiter? Also, would i be able to use the same cream cheese icing to make a border on the cake? or would the icing be too thin/thick? I have only used butter cream in the...
Thank you both so much for the help!
Hello!I am very new to making cakes with fondant. I've only made 2 cakes covered in fondant. I was wondering if i can still put fondant decorations, like cut out hearts, on the side and top of a cake if i don't cover it in fondant first??
