I'm needing to cover a 10 X 3 and a 8 X 3 cake in the MMF recipe that I have heard so much about here.....how many recipes of it will I need to make?
The small/half batch will cover your 8" but you will need a large/full batch to cover the 10"...with some left over! If you plan to decorate with it as well..you might want to make 2 full batches!
Okay, the recipe that takes 16 oz marhmallows. 2 tbsp of water and 2 lbs of powered sugar, is that a large batch or a small batch? Oh, and another question, can I make it and use it right away or does it need to sit overnight....I was wanting to use it tomorrow on my two cakes for my class but if it needs to sit overnight, I guess I'll just ice them with buttercream. Thanks for the help.
..yes, the 16 oz is the large/full batch! Some people say it needs to sit overnight, but others have used it right away. For me...I done it both ways with no difference!
Okay, I'll make a trip to Wal-mart in the morning and grab another bag of marshmallows and make up a couple batches. I've decided I like working with fondant but hate the taste of the store bought stuff and I have not read about one person here not liking the MMF so it's time to give it a try. Thanks for your help!!
You are welcome! IMHO, the only thing better than MMF is Satin Ice Fondant, but it costs a lot more to buy that stuff! Good luck!
