I just discovered this website and I hope you can help.
I want to try my first batch of fondant:
1.) Which is better-MFF or buttercream fondant?
2.) Do I make one big batch and break it down into smaller balls for the different colors?
3.) Is it possible to over knead the fondant?
4.) Any tips for a first timer?

Thanks so much!

1) MMF is probably better. Actually I don't think there really is a buttercream fondant - unless it's rolled b'cream - that's the closest.
2) Yes you make one batch then color it as needed.
3) Over knead? I doubt it. You would get way too tired before it got that bad. The more you knead fondant the softer, easier to handle it gets.
4) have fun! icon_smile.gif Play with it. It is so similar to using pie dough or PlayDough. Roll it out and cut shapes; make small critters; form scrolls etc etc to get the feel of it.
