You can search CC for Rhonda's Ultimate MMF, it's a great fondant recipe and adapts easily to different flavors. I make it all the time with a few tweaks.


Or you can google search Liz Marek's Fondant. That one is similar to Rhonda's except Liz adds a small amount of store bought Wilton fondant for elasticity. I've never made it but I've seen great reviews. 


Then there's Michelle Foster's Fondant. A bit more labor intensive than the other two, but if you master it you are set for life!

Oh, and IMO Rhonda's MMF is the easiest and cheapest fondant to make! HTH!

I make Liz Marek's MMF.  As mentioned, she does add Wilton white fondant to the mix, but I love the result.  Also, instead of the 3 tablespoons of water, I use 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of clear vanilla flavouring.  It just makes it a bit tastier.  It's a very easy fondant to make and use, and inexpensive.


I buy the Wilton white fondant at Michaels whenever they have a 50% coupon, so that I have it on hand when I need to make fondant.  I use dollar store or Walmart marshmallows.  They work perfectly.


This is her recipe:

AI also make Liz marek's mmf recipe. It's the third fondant recipe that I've tried and it was by far the easiest to make and even my hubby liked it( he hates fondant).
