It can be more challenging to work with. We use it because it tastes SO much better than Wilton fondant, and it is much cheaper to make it yourself rather than buy ready made. But it can be more sticky and stretchy. It's not impossible to work with, just different. We just got some Fondarific to try, and I have heard it is easier to work with. It tastes awesome, but it is definitely more expensive than MMF. HTH!

I think marshmallow fondant is the best. That being said, it took me over a year to get the right consistency. Too much powdered sugar and it gets crumbly, but too little leaves it stretchy. Now that I've finally got it down, it comes out wonderful and easy to work with. People that don't like fondant, really seem to like marshmallow fondant. Good luck.

I only use Marshmallow fondant as a rule. Wilton Fondant tastes like something off the bottom of a shoe. It does take some getting used to, it is very sticky and mess to make. But, I find it much easier to use because the pre-made stuff is very hard and stiff, hard to get going and shape. With MMF, it's fresh and you can use it a little warm and it is SO much easier. You can make as little or as much as you need at a time, and it is MUCH cheaper! All around I would say getting aquainted with MMF is worth the effort! Your clients will be MUCH happier with the taste and your muscles in your hands and arms will thank you for it!

I use marshmallow fondant, cheap and easy. CHEAP is important because, even though it tastes better than the others, everyone still peels it off! Rarely do I see people eat much of it. Fondant looks nice but usually people like the buttercream or ganache under least in my experience!
