I tried a new recipe for MMF which includes putting shortening IN the recipe, instead of coating the bowl, hook, etc.

The method worked great for making it, but it seems to just fall apart when I put it on the cake.

I was able to pull it off the buttercream and re-smooth the buttercream, but is there any way to fix this fondant? Add more melted marshmellows, powdered sugar, corn syrup, glyercin -- anything? What might help hold this fondant together and give it some stretch.

Thanks for any insight.

Adding more marshmallows (heat mmf slightly, then poke mini marshmallows in, heat a bit more then knead) could help. It has brought back some of my mmf from the brink of disaster icon_smile.gif

I added more marshmellows and it did bring it back to life. I don't think I will use that recipe again. I had such high hopes for it b/c it was so much easier to mix and the clean up was a breeze afterwards. However, the nightmare texture of that fondant was not worth it.
