Yes a thousand times! And add almond extract or oil instead of vanilla. ;)

Hi, I have made a MMF ones but I didn't like the taste. And then one lady made MFF (Michele Foster's Fondant) and I tried it and it tasted nice!!! Not too sweet and tasted milky too.

 

Here is the link if you want to try it.

I especially like the white chocolate version. It adds a nice flavour and improves elasticity.

P.s rather than making your own, Asda's own brand RTR icing is really good. It's £2/kilo at the minute.

I had to make another bag for this weekend. I took some in progress pictures and made a little tutorial on my facebook page. Have a look and like if you find it useful :)

 

It was Mr Tumble's Spotty Bag. It was for my work colleague's sister who has learning difficulties.

Thanks for the info.

 

I am just alarmed at the amount of quite frankly terrible ingredients that go in these things. Thats why I want to steer clear from the likes of corn cyrup and stuff. Even the thought of someone consuming Trex makes me vom.

 

I tried it, I found it to be very very sticky and the more icing sugar I added the more it started to taste like conventional icing. I stabilised the mixture with a bit of corn powder instead which kept it tasting like marshmallows and not fondant.

 

Was sure I would through the first batch away but with so little ingredients I guess you can continue adding till something goes right!!

 

Now, onto my task of finding a non gross recipe that doesnt require refridgeration for crusting buttercream!

I always use 1:2 ratio of butter to icing sugar and for the chocolate buttercream, I make ganache and mix it with the normal buttercream. icon_smile.gif
