Haha! Thank you for your support!!
I'll try heating it up too, it did work when I coloured it last night, but it hardens really fast.
I made MMF this summer for my icecap cake for my little one's 4th birthday, but it tasted vile and was rather humid even though I must have used twice the amount of icing sugar! MMF in India costs a bomb to make because the marshmallow is imported and therefore leaves you out of house and home. That's why I decided to try my hand at the other version. I must say it is a lot easier to work than the sticky mess of MMF, but now I have the opposite problem!
The downside is that the gelatine I got when I used to live in China (we move a round quite a bit) absolutely reeks of pork bones, so I have to warn all the veggies at the party not to come near it and I have to add a non dairy cream layer in order to isolate the vegan cake from the fondant
The good news is I picked up some gelatine in Dubai when I transitted to France at Xmas, so the next lot of fondant will definitely be porkless!
Ah the glamourous life of expats, ey?!
Parchment paper and silicone moulds from France, gelatine from United Arab Emirates, Crisco once in a blue moon via a diplomat friend with access to an Embassy shop in Delhi, sprinkles from Amazon UK via a business travelling colleague, Kenwood chef via another colleague from France and so on, and so on! With no supermarkets, one can only hope things will get easier someday!!
Off to whip the non dairy cream
