So, we made a batch of marshmallow fondant from the site here, and while it tastes DELICIOUS , I'm having a problem liking the texture it is kind of....greasy? I'm not sure if I should try to keep working with it to understand it better, but I covered a cake with it and it was really just soft. Is that the texture?

I would love to make regular fondant, but it doesn't taste as good where marshmallow tastes amaaaazing!!!

Please help if you can! I'm going to try to work with the fondant again to see what I can do, or if I'm missing something about decorating with it (which god knows I am because it was my first time making and playing with fondant) but any help would be awesome!

If it is too greasy, add cornstarch, or more powdered sugar. Just like when you add flour to bread dough until it is smooth, but not sticky. MMF is easy to adjust, and almost never ruined. If it is too dry, add a little Crisco to your hands and knead it in, add the powders if too greasy. icon_smile.gif Keep working with it, and it will be fine. It does do better if after you make it, you let it cool for a day or so, and settle together.
