would I put a microwave
??? Oh, yeah, how else do you soften up MMF? Thanks
Hhmn , you mean if it gets hard in the bag etc? Well, I guess, try turning on your oven to 200F, turn it off, place marshmallow fondant in say, a covered pyrex or corningware container and leave it for a few minutes in the oven. Other than that, I would think sealing it double bagged and placing the bagged fondant into a pan of hot water for a few minutes, might work. The thing is, you have to really watch it, otherwise it will melt. Guess we get so used to microwaving things for a few seconds, we don't really try the other tried and true methods.
And, I was one of the later folks to get a microwave, I think I got it in about '88, so I can relate!
