Is very easy and the taste is better!!!
I also use this recipe. I have not yet made any other type of fandant. I am a novice cake decorator trying to start a home business. Do you find that this is the easiest way to make Fondant? What about any other types of Fondant? I heard that making it yourself is a lot tastier than the store bought product. Is this really so? I would appreciate any feed back. Thanks.
Yes definitely, making your own is not only more cost effective it is also tastier. I have heard that top cake decorators use satin ice which is another option if you don't want to make it yourself or are pressed for time.
This is the kind I always make and use, as well. It's almost too easy!! And it tastes good, is cheap, and always works out.
This is my recipe of choice also! Love it!
I have made this fondant once, but it ended up with small lumps, I was told that i added to much conf sugar at once, could this be why
how much is 1 bag ofminiature marshmallows? thank you.
If you are making a small cake this is fine, but when you have 3 or 4 wedding cakes to do it is a bit to much labor. I use Ice and easy by bakery craft. It is delicous. I have made this recipe just for fun.
I use this recipe too and I love it. Tastes great. As far as the labor goes, I use my kitchen aide mixer with the hook.
okay I'm confused on the 50/50 so do you make the fondant and then make the gumpaste and then combine it together. Is this easier to work with.
I just tried this a my very first recipe with my KitchenAid 600 pro. So quick compared to kneading for 20 minutes, great recipe!
Does this turn out shiny? Or is it a matte finish? How thin do you usually roll it? And does this work well for fondant bows/flowers? Does it harden well? Thanks!
Can you color it and I, too wonder if it can be used to make bows and flowers!
I tried making this tonight, and I had the worst luck. Was my first time ever making fondent, usually I just decorate with star tips, but I wanted to try this. IT was very hard to roll out, and it got very sticky. Not sure where I went wrong.
yeah me too. :( but then I tried the 16oz bag of marshmallows...I'm gonna try with the regular 10.5oz and hopefully it works out ok.
i used a recipe like this and the recipe said to "grease often", as in your hands and countertop. i ended up with a greasy, gooey, sticky mess. when i tried to roll it out and put it on my cake, it was so greasy that it just fell apart. i don't know why, but it just didn't work out AT ALL lol
I use this recipe, I use the 16 oz bag of MM, and make sure to use good crisco, any cheap shortening makes the fondant very greasy in the end. I mix it with a spatula covered in grease. Usually make my husband do it so my arms aren't tired. Grease the rolling in, the counter, hands, everything.
Fondant is so asseme.
sorry everybody but i didn't know these had comments lol, sorry, yes you can color it. i read where some one put the entire melted marshmallows on the counter first. you have to mix it in a little at a time and work each part after you work it in, then do another then i add them togeather. sometime it will need a little more con sugar and some times, and i have put a tad of water in. i do mine in a really large bowl to mix, then i can pull over what i need. i like this recipe to, wilton taste's awful
oh on the 50/50 not for cake, i use to put in some gum tex powder in with it, the da i though about and figured 1 of each. if you look on the back of rhe gum tex can it has a recipe on the back for gum paste.
if it's too sticky or greasy add a little more powdered sugar. I use this recipe all the time and have never used any other type of fondant. LOVE IT. I do struggle with sugar lumps though so it was good to read the tips on that, thanks for sharing!
hi all i just read a post where someone used their food processor for mm fondant but didn't melt the mm's, i'm going to try it, but i will nuke mine, have to grease the bowl, rod and carefully the blades, but i'm sure you'll have to kneed some crisco in. after it's done, other wise i don't think it will be smooth enough.
hi i tried with not melting the marshmallow, i didn't like it, 50/50 only works for makeing decorations, that's one batch of fondant and one batch of gumpaste, you can sift your ps if you having problems with lumps
I love the mmf. I'm not sure if it would hold up to , like flowers, tiaras etc...
