homemade MMF - it's cheaper, easy to make, and super delicious!
I've learned so much from my mistakes..... I'm thinking of making a few more!

I agree with Debbye27, MMF is definately the best. I have used it for years and my customers love it. I get a lot of people that order cakes and will request to not have fondant because they have only had the store bought kind and they dont like it. I tell them mine is homemade and it taste like a really sweet marshmallow and they will agree to go with it almost every time, and I've gotten several comments about how much better it is than anything they have had before. Not to mention it is way cheaper!

I've been wondering about this, too. I've only used homemade fondant so far. It seems to work okay, but I can't compare it with anything else. It is also really time consuming. Are there any store bought brands you prefer?

Hi -
I use Carma - - but it is ridiculously expensive tho the taste is wonderful. I think you can get it online although I got it from my wholesaler.

Michelle Fosters Updated Fondant recipe can be found here on cake central. It's awesome! Tastes great and is easy to make! No marshmallows required!

Several variations can be found in her book, The Sugar Fix.

I used to make MMF all the time. I liked the taste, but sometimes got in-consistent results from batch to batch - how firm, stretchiness, etc. I switched to MFF 18 months ago and love it! Totally made from scratch, including yummy ingredients like heavy cream and butter. It tastes the best of all the purchased and/or homemade fondants that I've tried - WAY better. And I get very consistent results batch-to-batch. I whip up two batches at a time, sometimes three. (In sequence, not doubling or triping the batch.... that would kill my mixer!)

MMF=marshmallow fondant

MFF=Michelle Fosters Fondant

Fosters fondant is soooo much better than marshmallow fondant. Less messy to make, less sweet and feels like the Fondx brand that I used to make. Far superior in my opinion.

With regards to Michelle Foster's Fondant recipe, there are two updated versions, one from March 2009, one from April 2009. The recipes are slightly different. Can anyone tell me the correct one or which one is easier to use? One calls for 2 tbs of glycerine, the other, 3.
Thanks!!
post #12 of 26
Use the one that calls for 3 T. Works best in my opinion.

I also have a question about Michelle Foster's Fondant: what kind of measurements are used there: 1 cup of milk - how many dl. or grams is it? one pack of gelatin - how many grams? Will appreciate a lot if someone helps me. I can't figure our the correct proportions myself.
