recipe for MFF on Cake Central.  Took me a while to find it on the website, so I'm putting it on my threads so it's handy.    sounds nice.

From the comments here it would appear that either version works well. I use the 2 T. version. If I have another cake due relatively soon, I'll just wrap the leftover well in plastic and place in a zip loc bag and store it in the refrigerator. I always make the white chocolate version, (for workability), and flavor it with Lorann's cheesecake flavoring. If  I don't have enough for a new project, I just add it to what I've already made. I absolutely love it and it is wonderful to have it on hand. Some days I make up a batch or two and store them in the freezer. One of these days I'll have to try a different flavoring, but meanwhile I can't see "fixing something that ain't broke". And yes, it does make about 4 1/2 lbs.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

How does it hold up in humidity?

I live in Missouri where we have a relatively high humidity. I keep the AC on in my cake room and transport in my SUV with the AC cranked up as high as it will go. I don't know how it  would react without these provisions.I do put it over ganach instead of BC which I believe really helps. I think these precautions would be the same for any brand of fondant.

 

Perhaps others will have more experience.

We're neighbors! ;) I'm in Kansas, so the humidity is killer. I can't use mmf in the summer and switched to using Jennifer Dontz' fondant recipe. It holds up well, I just find it a bit too soft. I use ganache also, I think I'll give this one a try and see if I like it better.

I always make this recipe by hand. I don't want to burn out my mixer. (Especially since its not my mixer, it's my MIL's

Howdy, neighbor!  When you said we're neighbors, I was picturing someone just down the winding country road from me. As much as I travel nowadays, Kansas sounds like it is a world away. (I've lived in many places in the course of my life, so it's not like I've stayed where I started), but I'm certainly happy here and never want to move again.

Let me know how you like MFF. I can't rave enough about it. And as far as humidity goes, it is nothing like it was when I lived in Hawaii. But it certainly isn't like the dry desert air I "enjoyed" when living in Arizona. (Yeah, it's dry, but so is an oven in which you bake cookies!)
