I have bit off more than I can chew - my sister thinks I can do my nieces wedding cake - I do have till September but I need to practice. She wants calla lillies, ribbons, pearls and swags - three tiers. I have read many posts and feel okay but I am uneasy about the fondant - Wilton fondant tastes awful, and I have used a recipe from cc before it tasted better but was difficult to work with. I appreciate all the help.....

I just made Michelle Fosters Fondant for the first time, it tastes great and works well! I am very used to Satin Ice and was very pleased that it was as easy to work with as what I am used to!

MMF recipe here has 4 ingrediants...16oz marshmallows, 2TBS water, 1tsp flavoring (like clear vanilla), and 2 cups powdered sugar. The recipe on here is easy to follow and the outcome you want to get is like a good pizza or bread dough...soft but not cracking. Then smooth it with some crisco, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for a day. When you take it out microwave it for about 15 seconds or so to soften it up and then roll it out on either sifted powdered sugar or on a thin smear of crisco (my choice). Play with it for a few cakes so you can get the feel of it before trying to use it for anything as important as a wedding cake. If you have any problems they are usually solved with either more powdered sugar or more crisco (sticky=powdered sugar needed, cracking=crisco needed) and there are lots of people here who can help!
