Idea for flavoring MMF - Page 2

post #16 of 25
You can add flavor to your MMF before adding the sugar. After the Marshmallows melts in the microwave and before you add the powder sugar (10x) you add the color you want the MMF and the flavor. You can use extract flavors or liquors. Then you start adding the sugar until you get the consistency of the fondant. thumbs_up.gif

This is a little different, and you are restricted by the flavors available, but last Feb., I made MMF for a Valentine's cake (in my pics) and I used the pink marshmallows which are strawberry flavored. The fondant turned out SO GOOD!! My biggest challenge was keeping my kids away from it! icon_lol.gif

Anyway, Target discounted them after V-day, so I stocked up icon_biggrin.gif

I usually use extract flavors or oils, but my 6 year old daughter saw the kool-aid idea and wants me to try it for her birthday. For me making cakes is all about having fun and trying new techniques. So I said that we would try it, since she will be helping me and I want her to have some say too.

Kool Aid has a strawberry lemonade flavor that sounds awesome. I bet it would be good on a lemon cake!

Hi all,
Juts reading t his thread and was wondering if the flavorings you are all talking about cuts down on the insane/overly sweetness of just plain MMF? I tried MMF a while back and put it on sugar cookies. It worked well and I love sugar, but found it to be WAY TOO sweet. Thoughts?

meredith, with me personally, even with using the extracts the MMF is really sweet. But using the Kool-Aid gives it a nice candy like taste. I made sugar cookies yesterday and used MMF that I made out of lemon and berry blue flavored Kool-Aid. Using the little packets that have no sugar in it gives the MMF a great taste. You just have to be careful what you pair the flavors with because of the taste of them together.
