Has anyone tired this before? Fondant and I do not get along, I cant seem to work with it everytime I try...and I get frustrated and then give it and wont work with it...but I found this in error today....




Note:  Using candy melts or chocolate makes the MMF very pliable:  No need to add any corn syrup to it.  When using it to cover a cake with, roll it out and let it sit for a few minutes (2-3 minutes) to rest and stiffen a little bit making it easier to roll up and unroll over a cake.

It is still fondant. It's just marshmallow fondant with the candy melts added for color and a possible change in texture. I've seen numerous posts about that. You can find them by typing "mmf candy melts" into the search box at the top right of every CC page.

I've tried this..and while it is easier to cover a cake with (at least in my opinion) it is much more expensive..

Have you ever tried covering a cake with modeling chocolate? I find it is easier and more tasty than fondant.

Ive tried working with Fondant a few times and found out I CAN NOT do it...infact to the point that I hate trying now. 


But I love the cakes I see others especially the images!
