SUCCESS!!!!!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I finally did it!  I covered a 6" round and a 8" round with homemade MMF!!!!  I finally got the consistency right!  Success comes with practice!

 

So excited! I have another cake to do this coming weekend and 2 more in Sept.  And possibly one in Nov. 

 

Wish I had pics, but my camera isn't working and my cellphone is too old to download to computer. :(

Maybe I can figure out how to get them from fb from my friend to here.

Hi that sounds great but as I'm really new at this please tell me what is MMF? I need to cover a board soon so was wondering how best to do it. Thanks

My marshmellow fondant recipe is 16 oz. mini marshmellows, 1 Tbsp water, 3/4 bag of 2 lbs. confectioner sugar, 1 tsp. light corn syrup and 1 tsp clear flavor (I use vanilla)

Put mm in microwave safe bowl, pour water over and heat until melted.(Grease wooden spoon with shortening to stir mm)  Stir in corn syrup and flavor (you can also put in coloring at this point if you need the whole thing one color - I normally color just the amount I need after its all mixed).  Pour all this into bowl with confectioner sugar and mix with wooden spoon and then with your hands until no longer sticky and its a great big ball.  (You can add confectioner sugar if needed)

 

I grease my table and hands as needed and knead to get it to the consistency (pliability) I want. The original recipe calls for it to be covered in a light coating of shortening overnight in a sealed container, but I used it Saturday after just making it and it worked wonderful.

I haven't covered any board with fondant. I've heard of it but I'm afraid transporting it would mess it up.  I take freezer paper (shiny side out) and tape it down on the bottom all the way around with clear packing tape. Make sure its shiny side out or you'll get grease spots.

Now that you've made it, when you get a stand mixer you can try this.........http://cakecentral.com/t/651848/making-marshmallow-fondant-in-my-kitchenaid-stand-mixer

Thanks, MBalaska! I'll be trying that mixer technique tomorrow!!!!  I have a LSU (Louisiana State University) cake to do for a 7 year old girl's birthday party for Saturday.

Congrats on the success! I'm still umming and ahhing over whether or not to try MMF. Mini marshmallows are not that readily available in Australia.
