I'm still new to CC, and fairly new to "caking" in general.

I have already made a 3 tiered wedding cake in white MMF, and it turned out great. I now have another bride, who has requested that her fondant be a dark chocolate brown.

Is it possible to make that color in MMF? If so, I would love any tips!

I have already learned so much from CC, you guys are so helpful!

Does she want chocolate-flavored MMF or just chocolate-colored MMF?

It's very easy to make chocolate MMF...just replace part of the powdered sugar with cocoa powder. Different cocoa powders will give it slightly different colors and flavors.

For chocolate-colored MMF you would want to use brown coloring...add to the marshmallows before you add the powdered sugar, to prevent it from weakening the fondant.

Oh, thanks so so much !! She was just wanting a brown colored fondant, not chocolate tasting fondant.

Wish me luck! icon_biggrin.gif
