Something I found out regarding MMF

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Last time I made a batch of MM fondant about 6 weeks ago, I had a good portion left over so I froze it to see what would happen and today I used it and it was totally fine like before I froze it!!!

I didn't know if anyone else had tried it so I thought I would let everone know, the same also goes with rolled B/C it froze well and I was able to use it fine icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the tip! I was wondering how the MMF would hold up if I kept some in the freezer.

I left mine out for a WEEK. I made it and it was too soft, so I wasn't impressed, but I wrapped it up nice and sealed it in a zip lock bag and left it on one of my baking wire shelves and forgot about it.

so when I wanted to cover some cupcakes I just made I bought the colored fondants and wanted to "soften" the skin tones. I remembered I had the MMF and I mixed it...50/50..I tasted it ...sweet, not chemically. So I used it...it worked great!

I made more yesterday for my halloween cake.

Tips I've learned:

Don't let the marshmellows get cool, use them as hot as you can or it WILL make your mixer work harder. Mine got super hot!! and I was scared to lose it.

Knead it to death with hands COVERED with crisco. I had little "hard bits" on the bottom of my mixer, but since I had bought extra mashmellows...I could make more if needed. I scraped everything onto the fondant mat and kneaded it to death. IT WORKED.

If this thing colors as nicely as FONDANT...I will NEVER USE FONDANT AGAIN!!!

Thanks to who ever posted the tutorial...thanks CC for posting it...

and a BIG DIVA THANK YOU for the one that thought MMF up.

My next experiment....I wonder if I can just use Marshmellow fluff instead of melting the marshmellows. (maybe not since MMfluff is pretty soft, and the fluff won't try to get back it's shape like the 'mellows do when cool...)

Did you know you can use marshmellow fluff as colorflow???? you warm it up in the microwave or place the jar in warm water..tint, place in piping bags and pipe right onto the cakes!

Diva..MMF can be made with the fluff...just cut back on the water!!

I didn't know that fluff could be used as color flow.....hmmm..that makes sense and seems a whole lot easier!! Thanks!!

Cool, that will be my next thing...seems a whole lot easier, maybe just heat the fluff add the sifted sugar and work it from there! what COULD be easier, but the marshmellows are still more cost effective!

as for the marshmellow fluff "color flow"...it's really cool. the piece will stay nice and shiny...you can cut right through it, kids love it and people will never complain about the taste or break any teeth on it..lol

I will TRY to make some and post...but if anyone beats me to the punch...Please post picture!

HTH!

It was so easy and cheap.

1 pound of marshmellows, used the big ones that come in the one pound bag.

2 pound of sifted 10x sugar.

2 teaspoon of flavoring
2 tablespoons of water if I remember correctly.

just make sure your marshmellows are still pretty warm or your mixer WILL overwork itself.

follow the instructions on this site..make sure everything is pretty much LATHERED in grease...and go to it! You will be pleased!

Thanks for the tip.

I had read in one of my Wilton Yearbooks about the marshmellow fluff but have never tried it.
