MM fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for the feedback on the cow cake, I loved it. The other cake has the pillars going right through the bottom cake and then the top is sitting on a seperator plate.

As far as the large batches of MM fondant it doesn't work for me either so I just make them over and over but I knead larger amounts together at a time. It doesn't take long to make it so it doesn't bother me too much.

Then submit your post.

Edit Note: Ok... I took the snake out, I thought he was cute, but others might not. (The snake was a pic that I took at the Milwaukee County Zoo)
So, I put something more cake related in.

I can't get the large batch to turn out either! I thought it was just me. if anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated. The large batch just turns out way too dry. i guess I'll try cutting back on the sugar, but I'm following the directions. Oh well.

I find that interresting Suzanne that you find the small quantity very small. I made the small batch and covered a 9 inch cake and 35 mini egg cakes with the small batch. I used 2 lbs. powder sugar and one bag of marshmallows. Is that the same recipe?

No...that isn't the recipe that I'm using. It is one cup of marshmallows, one tbsp of water and 1 3/4 cups of powdered sugar. I haven't had any luck with the big quantity.

MOUSE! First the new mouse and now a snake...you're trying to scare me to death! icon_smile.gif Thanks for the advice on the pics.

Hi pastrymom. I used the same recipe that you did. It turned out great! I had plenty to do what I needed. I am making the Go Crazy Quilt in the 2003 yearbook. The only difference is that she wants buttercream ruffle on the bottom. So I still have some uncolored MMF left over. I love this stuff.
The only tip I might have to someone is that I used the spray Pam on my hands instead of the Crisco. Worked perfect and it was easy to spray just what I needed in the bowl and on my hands. I don't know if that will help anyone, though.
Happy Baking!!

I must try that tip. Last time when I was mixing it all up, I was wondering if I was ever going to get the stuff off my hands. It was a bit of work so I can't wait to try the spray. I am making a birthday cake with the fondant for this Saturday. Can't wait to finally show a cake on this site.

partry mom, what is the recipe that you use as I would like to try a big recipe too but have not had success.

I use 2 lbs. powder sugar
1 16 oz bag marshmallows
2 tbsp. water

sift sugar and split in half. Melt marshmallows over double broiler with water. Pour marshmallows into half of sugar and mix. Slowly mix the rest of sugar or it will become too dry. Make sure you kneed well.

I got this from the Wilton site. It didn't seem too large of a batch to handle. It was very very sticky at first, but when you get it under control, it is easy to deal with. I still need to try to spray my hands with cooking spray. I hope it helps.
