I have used MMF on several occasions now and find it tastes good and is MUCH less expensive than Wilton. The recipe is 16oz bag of mini marshmallows, 3 Tbsp. water, one pound of conf. sugar. Melt marshmallows & water, then knead in sugar. Simple, but a little messy! Try it - you'll be glad you did!
I just finished course III and used MMF for the class. My instructor had never heard of it and when everyone else pulled their fondant out of the box and mine came out of a zip-lock bag her eye-brow raised. I let the class taste a sample and ended up giving the receipe to everyone, including the teacher. It taste sooo much better and is so cheap to make-around $2.00 a batch and that makes about twice the amount in the Wilton box.
