It is fine for beginners learning on what the texture is suppose to be like and to make molded figures out of that are not to be eaten. But to sit down and eat the stuff?
I will use Wilton fondant for my molds. I rolled the fondant thin and put it in sea shell molds. I brused the dried molds with mother of pearl luster dust. very pretty.
I would also use the Wilton fondant to make figures, but I'm not ready to try that yet.
I want to try BunnyWoman's MMF. Her recipes are great!
Gave away my first fondant coered cake and the folks said it was like rubbery cardboard. Yuk!
You can make Marshmallow Fondant quite easily and it is far more economical than pre-rolled fondant. It is marvelous to work with. I prefer the recipe that adds 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup and 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract. It is smoother, more pliable, and not as dry as the plain MMF. Rolls out like a dream.
You may want to try a batch of MMF .... approximately 3 pounds per batch.
I plan on using this for my brother's wedding cake next weekend... I wanted Satin Ice, but don't have enough time to purchase it online...plus, I already have 17lbs. of Wilton's.
What do you use to flavor it with? Lorann's clear flavorings? How many drops do you add?
What's the MMF recipe that uses lemon extrat, etc.? If you tell me the title of it I'll search for it on the site. Thanks!
It smells like chemicals when you open the box.
If you have a Michael's close by, you can also buy Duff's fondant there. It is Fondarific brand and it taste MUCH better than Wilton. It's greasier in texture and I think both are easy to roll out.
If you can order fondant, there are many options out there like FondX, Satin Ice, Pettinice, Choco Pan, etc.
Making marshmallow fondant is a touch messy due to the powdered sugar, but if you make your own buttercream, you are used to that! Clean up is easy enough...I just soak the bowl I melted the marshmallows in with dishsoap and warm water and it cleans up easily.
**I do spray my spoon, bowl and mat with Pam prior to making MMF** It helps.
Good luck with whatever fondant you choose!
