Do you use MMF for wedding cakes?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm just trying to decide whether to use MMF or home-made fondant for a large wedding cake coming up. I've been making my own fondant and I'm happy with it, but MMF would be so much cheaper! I've only made MMF once, and I liked it a lot, but I'm wondering how it will compare to regular fondant for a wedding. The reception will be inside, just FYI. I'm just a little nervous about using MMF for such a big cake (5 tiers).

What would you do? Thanks!!

So far I have not found any fondant that tastes really good. I'd love to hear which is best, or what recipe you use.

The marshmallow is okay, but seems like it is more for a birthday cake. I'd like to find something more suited for a wedding cake. It's just too sweet.

I would. Used it for the large 3 tiered anniversary cake in my photos and didn't have a single complaint. There were people who just ate the cake and left the MMF, but you will find that with *any* fondant. Actually the thought of *not* using it for wedding cakes hadn't even occurred to me.

I too have used it on a wedding cake and I got great feedback. I wouldn't hesitate to use it, as 4bugzinarug said, no matter which brand or flavor of fondant, it will probably just be peeled off and not eaten, as I think it is the texture that the people don't like, not so much the flavor.

I guess people just don't like to chew their icing.

Good point, luv2cake! I think that's what bugs me about it too (chewing your icing - ha ha), but everyone loves the way it looks enough that they all still want it.
I'll do a little taste test again and try to decide. If they taste and feel the same, then I'll just go with the less expensive one - MMF. Unless anyone can think of any reason NOT to use it for a wedding cake! icon_smile.gif

I used it on the dragon fly cake in my bio and when it was left out to room temp, after a couple of hours it just melted in our mouthes when we ate it. It was great. Everyone loved it, which is crazy that people liked it, I actually pu in almond flavoring and it was great.
