based on my experience, regular fondant is more pliable than mmf, you can roll it as thin as you liked it to be but not w/ mmf.good thing w/ mmf 'tho is it doesn't stick much to the surface you're working on unlike the regular fondant..hope this helps icon_smile.gif

Personally, I find MMF easy and relatively inexpensive. You can control it's consistency somewhat too since you control how much powdered sugar you use.

I've never used regular fondant though so I can't give you a balanced, unbiased opinion but for the time & money it takes to make it, MMF is pretty darned good.

It's at least worth trying out. HTH.

I have used both: regular fondant and MMF. I find they are both the same in terms of covering cakes, etc. It all depends on how much powdered sugar you use and on the weather. It is sooo HOT here in Puerto Rico! I was explaining ...they are both the same but I prefer MMF flavor. It is sooo delicious! And I always prepare my fondant doesn't matter if it is regular or MMF. I don't like store bought fondant...flavor is yuck! And I never use Crisco on my fondant. I know many recipes insist on using it ...but I discovered it is not necessary. Without CRISCO ...flavor is YUMMY!
