I officially HATE MMF! - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Ugh... it's the humidity??

I tried to cover a styrofoam round but the mmf was so... so... GOOEY! I don't know what the heck was going on, but it just stretched like a mofo. LUCKILY that round is going to be mostly roses so it will be hidden... I guess I'll be doing the other rounds on cooler mornings.

Today was quite scorching, though humidity is always extremely high here so...

Seriously, this works.
BUT if you're not a MMF purist here's a recipe I found on Youtube that's yummy and not too much trouble: Melt a bag of marshmellows with 3Tbs water in increments in the microwave. Mix in icing sugar (1-2lbs) and 'knead like you've never kneaded before'. I admit, the first time I did it i totally didn't like the feel of it so it languished in my freezer for weeks. Then I decided to use it up to cover a board and was amazed . It tastes good, it rolls out nicely AND I added it to some homemade fondant and it changed the texture so it was like store-bought! Try it, you might like it....
