I usually make MMF. I've been happy with the recipe but have only covered a cake 2 x with it. I usually do buttercream. I tend to use it for decorations because it seems everytime I make it the results are a little different each time .I bought a 5lb pail of Satin Ice. (just to try ) Then I get a request for cupcakes for a surprise party for someone at Church.Since I have a 4 tier Wedding cake in May I asked if I could swap out the cupcakes for a 4 tier cake for practice. and decide to use the satin ice on it . Realizing I don't have enough I don't know what to do. Gosh it's exspensive to ship this stuff and the cake is for this weekend. I've never tried MFF before and have been reading lots of forums on it. I really want to just try satin Ice by itself and not mix it with MMF. Don't know if that would work anyway. But I also don't want the look to be different between the tiers of MMF and Satin Ice. I've watched all kinds of utube videos on using fondant for covering cakes but I'm pretty unsure of myself. The last one for my daughter kept ripping and I had to redesign in my head a plan B at the last min to cover up the rips.
In May this 4 tier wedding cake is all chocolate fondant. So I'm trying to experiment on whether or not I can find a recipe for that as well or if I will have to order Satin Ice in the chocolate.
Any suggestions and help is appreciated.
