What am I doing wrong with marshmallow fondant? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I use MMF quite often an never really had problems with it... Try kneading some crisco into it. and rolling it out on a fine layer of the 50/50 cornstarch/pwdr sugar.

Here the recipe I use for mmf
1 1/2 bag of small marshmallows about 16 onz
2 tbs water
2 tsp corn syrup
1 tsp clear vanilla
5 to 51/2 c confectioners sugar(powder)
1/4 c vegetable shortening
Grease a glass bowl, wooden spoon, & k.a.m(mixer) metal bowl. Microwave marshmallows & water for 40 seconds at a time, about 2 minutes. Stirring until fully melted. Immediately add corn syrup,vanilla & what's left of the shortening to melted marshmallows. Mix well , transfer to metal bowl .Add 2 c sugar. Mix with dough hook. While mixing add the rest of sugar 1 cup at a time until all incorporated. Transfer fondant to silicone mat,or counter top. knead it about 2 minutes . It will be soft. Double wrap in plastic . Let it rest 6 hrs. or over night. ** for chocolate mmf use 4 to 4 1/2 c sugar plus 1/4 c cocoa. Fondant covered 2 cakes. Each cake was 9x2 doubled. Love this recipe, easy to roll out.

Sandra05, can you make flowers and figures with your recipe? Do I need to add tylose? I copied your recipe and will try it.

Thanks for the response. I will try this. It definitely sounds easier than the one on there. Like I said it worked great the first time I made it, but the second time it didn't. It was nothing, but frustration. I don't have the money to buy fondant already made to practice with so that is why I tried it to begin with. All of you are so helpful and I appreciate it bunches.

Thanks for all the tips! I wrote to the people at Satin Ice about ordering, and they said they would send me a sample and I never received it. I haven't seen the recipe for fondant by Michelle, so I'll have to look that up.

Also - a big key to getting a good MMF is using marshmallows that aren't stale! I once tried to use an already opened bag of marshmallows to make MMF for a cake for my family and it was incredibly difficult to work with (no elasticity, etc). Since then, I give the bag a nice squeeze to check that the marshmallows are fresh!



Yes! Stale old marshmallows will not work.
