You can get the vinyl in the fabric department. I also went to the dollar store and bought plastic placemats for smaller projects. Vinyl/plastic tablecloths work great too and you can cut them as well.

Would anyone be willing to pass the Rhondas Ultimate Chocolate Fondant recipe to me? I tried looking under the recipe page but to no avail. But I did find her MMF. Does this fondant type work well for making accent pieces? ie maybe a baby head and feet?? I'd appreciate ANY feedback. Thx!!!

Do you think that using the MMF is a safe thing for a newbie to try? I've only covered one cake in fondant and it was a so/so experience. Is the MMF as easy to use as the Wilton premade?

Thank you!! I will try this one, hopefully it will turn out better than my last attempt to make it!!

You can find it back in the fabric dept. It is on rolls. I got the heaviest I could find.

I should have said I didn't add as much cocoa as the recipe called for, I wanted a lighter chocolate brown for my cake. I noticed when I added more cocoa to the fondant for the accents that it was harder to work with.

I have not decorated many cakes, and only one in MMF. I found it very easy to make! It tasted great and looked wonderful. Although you have to make the MMF from scratch, I would definitely take the time to make my MMF rather than by the Wilton stuff! I don't like the Wilton fondant. It is expensive and tastes horrible! Try it! You might fall in love with it!

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 roll mine out on the shiny side of freezer paper. I just tape a large piece to my counter and it works great! Not to mention that the clean up is as easy and throwing out a piece of paper. thumbs_up.gif

I adore MMF. before I started using fondant to cover cakes I researched to find the best tasting one and ran across the MMF recipe on 911.com so have been using that and haven't yet tried the pre-made kind. I too thought it was too sweet so I have been putting in about a half teaspoon of citric acid granules and that gives it a little tang to cut the sweetness a bit. You can also add flavors and use the citric acid to taste. I add these with the water when melting the marshmallows.

i think homemade tastes a bit better then store bought because you can kind of adjust it it to suit your tastes... but to be fair fondant isnt a fav but i love working with it...

I made Rhonda's Ultimate MMF yesterday, let it rest over night and then used it on Penny't Butter Cookies this afternoon. I flavored it with Creme Bouquet and butter flavoring and is it good! I'll be trying it on a small cake soon.

No, I don't think it's too hard for a Newbie to try. After you put in the first few cups of powdered sugar go slow so you don't get it too heavy. I didn't use quite all the 2# bag. I kneaded and colored it on a greased mat and then used cornstarch to roll it out. So some of you say rolling it out on a greased surface is better than the cornstarch?
