Rhonda's Ultimate MMF...

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I made some last night for a cake for my a woman at my DH's office and it was the first fondant I ever said.. "mmmm.. I could actually eat this on a cake" after I tasted it. I didn't have the princess flavoring so I used the lemon extract and it was really good.

I have to practice applying it to cakes more.. I am okay with the fondant.. I get a lot of air bubbles in it though.. it was soft, but I only had time to let it sit for an hour or so before using it.. I had to bake and decorate a cake in a few hours time (NOT a fun experience and I hope that it came out okay).. it wasn't a paid cake though so I am not too worried about it. It was much easier to work with this morning when I made the cut out stars to put on it so I think all of my issues were from using it too soon.

Anyway.. after this long, rambly, semi-venting post.. LOL.. I give this recipe a BIG thumbs_up.gif . It's the best tasting fondant I have tried. I made plain old MMF and I didn't like it like I thought I would.. but this stuff is great.. even my DH liked it.

I totally agree! Her ultimate chocolate fondant is equally delicious. I have always thought MMF was too sickly sweet, and I love marshmallows, but these recipes make it just right.

I have only tried the plain recipe so far and I loved it. Even my DH liked it so it's really good! He is quite picky about cakes and my best critic, if he does not like it, I do something else, I don't mess around. icon_wink.gif

Good Luck. thumbs_up.gif

After making it, do you leave it in an air tight container until you use it? when do you add food coloring?

Quick question - did you roll out your MMF in cornstarch and if so, how do you remove the cornstarch from the MMF once you have placed it on the cake - I tried dusting it off with a small paintbrush but some areas still had the cornstarch showing. Thanks much.

Thanks, I've been wanting to make MMF to use on cookies. This will be a first for me. I've never liked fondant but decided I'd give the MMF a try.

I just tried this recipe, too, for the first time. I had posted something about it last week. My kids and I were jumping for joy when we tasted it. I will never use anything else, ever again! thumbs_up.gif I used it for Mother's day (made my mom a Siamese cat icon_lol.gif ). I had read something Wendgoer had posted about rolling it out w/ shortening. It's wonderful. No sticking, no dust and it prevented the fondant from cracking! Thanks for that tip, Wendgoer, wherever you are! thumbs_up.gif I only had to color the pink and just added the paste color; it was fine. The rest of the color on my cake is painted on. I have to experiment w/ MMF more; I read somewhere on CC that for lots of color it should be added in after melting the marshmallows. I haven't tried it yet, though...

Do you spead the crisco all over the MMF before you roll it out, and it doesn't stick? How much cake does the MMF cover with one batch?

I used shortening to roll it out and had stickig issues, but I am positive that it was due to not letting it rest long enough. I am going to get a large piece of vinyl from WalMart.. I have heard that it doesn't stick to the fondant at all.

As for coloring.. I colored my fondant when I was making it since I was making the whole cake violet. But I also kneaded more color into some of it to make some darker and it was really easy to do. It really is great to work with and cheap to make.

I still want to try SatinIce anf Fondex fondant, but for now this works wonderfully and fits my non-existant budget.. LOL.

I also use shortening to roll out my fondant, but recently purchased the vinyl from Walmart. I haven't tried it yet though.

I knead my color in after the fact. I did add some while the marshmallows were hot once, I didn't think it made that big a difference.

Someone also asked how many cakes it will cover. I can get a single batch to cover a 10"round with some left over for decorations. I roll mine fairly thick though, a little less than 1/4." I think it's easier to work with that way.

What kind of vinyl from Wal-Mart? What department do you get it at?
