This is an impromptu post. I was planning on posting some cookies this week but it didn’t happen. Instead, I made some marshmallow fondant (MMF). It was my first time making it and overall I’d say it was successful. Am I 100% sold on it? Not sure???
When searching for MMF recipes I decided to go with a recipe by Mayen on YouTube. She makes incredible cakes and is very knowledgeable when it comes to cake decorating.
The MMF recipe by Mayen is as follows:
So that’s it. A very long post I know but I wanted to document the process. What’s the bottom line? The MMF was not hard to make, it tasted good and it’s inexpensive. This recipe cost about $4 to make 3 lbs of fondant (price will vary based on brand you use and location). This is very reasonable compared to store bought fondant. The downside is that it did get several air bubbles when rolling (this could be from my lack of experience with fondant but this has happened very rarely with Satin Ice) and it felt a bit on the soft side. Will I use the MMF? I’m going to say more than likely not. I have experience using Satin Ice for accents on cakes and cupcakes and because of my experience with how it feels and rolls I will probably stick to using it.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on MMF. Do you love it or hate it? Do you have a recipe you love? Do you have any tips? I’m not going to ditch MMF forever but just for now. I think it would be great to use for accents and figures because of the savings.
