I love the taste of MMF. But I find making it a bit tedious since I can just go to my local "cake" store and buy ready made Pettinice fondant.

I will be making a Winnie the Pooh themed cake at the end of the month for a boys 1st birthday. The cake will be shaped like a "hunny" pot with a small Pooh sitting on top.

I was wondering if anyone had ever used MMF to make figures.

If you have was it successful? What problems did you have? Was it different than using commercial ready made fondant? Was it more difficult to create figures, better, or about the same? Is it even possible to use MMF to make figures?

Any advice, tips, tricks would be much appreciated.

I only use MMF because I make a lot of kid cakes and they want to eat everything. Here are some of my MMF figures. Overall I was happy with them. Hope this helps

seedrv, What MMF recipe do you use? Do you add tylose or anything to it?

I use a basic MMF recipe thats 8 oz marshmallows, 2 TBS water and 3 ½ - 4 cups powdered sugar (it usually doesnt take the full 4 cups). If I need to make figures, I make the MMF a little on the dry side. I make sure I have at least a weeks notice so they will have time to dry out. I havent used tylose, yet anyway.

When I first started modeling with fondant I used MMF. I now use Satin Ice fondant with a little tylose powder added. If Im making small figures that I know will be eaten I use the straight fondant.
