I personally don't use fondant.. But I hear a lot of people rave about the MMF fondant and you can find the recipe on here..

Sorry I can't be anymore help. .. icon_smile.gif

i love mmf, the recipe is here on cc, it only calls for marshmallows, water and powder sugar. super easy to make and super easy to work with.
a word of caution, if you do make this recipe, only add half ps at first, knead in more as you go til you get a good consistency.

if i buy it (which is very,very rare since i love mmf) i get satin ice.

I don't have time to fool around with making fondant. I buy Pettinice or Satin Ice. Both taste really good and are easy to work with.

Satin Ice, it tastes just like vanilla/chocolate tootsie roll. Yummmm

I love the consistancy of Wilton , wouldn't eat it though. I've made MMF and Toba's which is made with the geletin and glycerin, but I can never get the right consistancy either. So if I HAVE to do a cake with it I buy Satin Ice. I've also tried the chocolate by them and I agree it tastes like a tootsie roll. I'm waiting to see what everyone says on getting a good consistancy. Either it's too wet or too dry, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. icon_cry.gif
