I take back everything I said.
I made the small quantity of MM fondant (from the Wilton site) and it worked out beautifully. The first time I was trying the large quantity recipe and I had a lot of problems. It was easy to use, rolled out really well and dried very hard.
I still don't think the taste is that much different but I buy Satin or Virgin Ice fondant and it's a lot better than Wilton's to start with.
My problem is that the small quantity makes a VERY small quantity...I'm not sure you could cover more than an eight inch cake with it. I had to make the recipe four times because I was afraid to make the large quantity again. Does anyone have a better recipe for a large quantity of MM fondant?
Sorry I put it down...it really worked so much better this time. The Crisco works like a charm when rolling as well...good tip Bunnywoman.
P.S. to Shayla: Cute cow cake! I love the little cow on top. As for the other cake, do you have the pillars resting right on the fondant without a separator plate or do they insert right into the cake tier to the bottom plate? I wish I could figure out how to insert a pic right into a post...never works for me.
