This is my first recipe to add to the group, and I'm so excited to share! I was struggling with MMF, in fact, I posted many a forums with issues, First it was crumbly, second it was so soft and heavy I couldn't get it onto my cake except for sheer luck (this wasn't my first time making MMF either, for some reason I was just having really inconsistent results). After posting back and forth with various people, and using my own experience, and watching a video, I think I mastered it. So this is for those of us who have struggled and needed an easy MMF. I even bought some Satin Ice to "feel" what Fondant should feel like. This MMF is a tad softer than the kind I bought, but I made figures out of it without the addition of gumpaste/tylose/glucose/gumtex or any other thing that is said to help with it (we were in a snow storm, and I needed to use what I had on hand). My figures stayed up to the challenge, all I did was kneaded in some extra PS (per figure, I didn't measure it, just "felt" and adjusted)--Best Part most of it was done in my Kitchenaid!!!
