mmf

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so I made mmf for the first time. I was so proud when I watched in come together. But now I'm trying to cover a 4" rice krispy treat iced in butter cream and its just going awfully.it keeps tearing. I know that I am not very great in covering with fondant but I'm getting really frustrated.

Did you give it some time to rest before you started rolling it out? If you try using it just after you've made it, it'll surely tear on you.

^^^ I like to let mine rest at least 24 hours before using it. If you didn't let it rest &are now short on time, try rolling it out on cornstarch, let sit a couple minutes, then transfer onto your rkt. Hth

Thanks. I made it last night and stayed up late covering and peeling off the fondant over and over. I tried it again this morning. I guess ill wait and try it again tonight. The cake is for my nephews birthday this sunday. I'm trying to make the green tunnels from mario. If all else fails I guess ill just ice it with green butter cream

Frustrating! ! I can't use mmf in the summer because of humidity issues. Hope it finally covers well for you!

Elizabeth Marek has a recipe for MMF which uses 1.25 lbs of Wilton fondant mixed in.  I find MMF to not hold it's shape when it's hot out and when I add a lot of color.  This mix works really well.

That's funny because I ended up mixing it into my wilton fondant.

mmf is all I have ever worked with and I live in an area with high heat and 100% humidity almost all year long...it just sounds like it didn't set long enough...also if it got too warm after kneading and rolling it out...sometimes I will roll it out and let it cool a bit before placing it over the cake...it all depends how long I had to knead it prior to rolling...good luck!

I agree with Savannahquinn. I use this method for mmf too. It can be rolled paper thin too and for sculpting figures (mixed with tylose mind you) it holds amazing detail.

Here's a video about how to make it. I hope this helps.  I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJCUy3ezRxE

 

Btw I use jet puff brand marshmellows and I don't have any issues.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
