How is this done nicely? Is it worth the headache to master making it? Why does it look so easy on youtube and in the directions? Is it me?(probubly). Each time I have tried to make my own it has been terrible. Is there a secret to it or is it trial and error? It is either too dry of too wet or looks great and when I roll it out it cracks and peels.

I don't like wasting my time but I would love to be able to make it myself.

Can you give us more details? What recipe are you using? I make MMF and found that the more I make it the easier it is, but still MMF is very simple to make. Good luck, share some more info -someone is bound to know the right advice for yOU!

I make MMF all the time( lol I say that like I've been caking forever)

But it's real easy to make, it always comes out smooth and it tastes delicous!!

I hope you find your way with homemade fondant!!

It's the best!!

I used to make mmf, and liked it, but then tried a recipe from "The Cake Bible" and now only use that. I agree, the more you make it the easier and faster it gets. I can't even think about spending the money on a store bought tub when I can make a great batch for a fraction of the cost.

Try and different recipe, and keep on trying. You'll get it.
