Introduction: Cake Decoration With MMF

About: An Italian living in China with a passion for cooking. I grew up in a picturesque town called Lecce nestled on the “heel of the boot”, Italy’s southern tip, between the Adriatic and Ionian se…
MMF stands for Marshmallow fondant which is a dough made of marshmallow candies and powder sugar. Its consistency makes it perfect to be shaped into flowers, butterflies or other cute animals to decorate cakes.

Here I am going to show you how to prepare the dough and shape it into cute, delicate roses.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 150 g marshmallow
  • 330 g powder sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • food colouring

Step 2: Step One: Melt It

In a double saucepan heat the marshmallows with the water
Once they are melt turn off the heat.
Add 125 g of powder sugar and mix till it up with a wooden spoon.

Step 3: Step Two: Kneat It

Place the dough on a surface covered with powder sugar and kneat it with more sugar (keep your hands covered with powder sugar so the marshmallow wont stick on your fingers). Keep doing so till you have incorporated all the sugar you have.
Cover the obtained though with cling film and place in a dry and cool place for 24 h.

Step 4: Step Three: Colour It!

After 24h take you MMF, divide it into smallish pieces and using food colouring, color it as you like. I made it pink!
Now we are ready to start shaping it.

Step 5: Step Four: Let's Shape It Big

Let’s make a big, nice rose. Take a little piece of MMF, roll it out in a rectangular shape and fold it in half.
Using your fingers roll it up starting from one edge till you reach the other
Press at the bottom, then open your rose petals.

Step 6: Step Five: Let's Shape It Small

Let’s now make smaller roses.

Take a small piece of dough and press it, then roll it up from one edge to the other.
Open your little rose’s petals

Step 7: Final Product

And this is the cake I have decorated for my mom's bday.

     You had me worried for a tiny fraction of a second there - 
    I thought you said MDF.

    They look really nice!  I bet they taste good too.
    (ps. step 2 it should be knead instead of kneat.)
