I have been making a simple marshmallow fondant for a year now. I like the taste and its not too bad to work with as far as covering a cake but no good for smaller detailed decorations due to its texture. I actually just made MFF today so I am going to see how that turns out (it is resting so I can use it tomorow) the texture was really soft, but im not sure i like the taste as much. ITs the first time ive tried it so maybe i will just have to play a little with it as everybody seems to rave about it. I just got the recipe on here for the MFF.

AI'm pretty new but I have gone through the process of marshmallow fondant. My first couple attempts were not a pretty sight. Sticky utensils, sticky hands, and powdered sugar everywhere. :( but I came across the perfect fondant recipe. Go to YouTube and the video is called 'the perfect marshmallow fondant recipe' by Lizzomarek. Its a marshmallow recipe that also incorporates Wilton fondant but it still taste delicious. :) It uses a stand mixer so it's not as messy but i think it will still work well doing it by hand. Hope this helps

Happy baking :-)
