For the flavor: mmf & satin ice
For the lovely look and consistency: Satin ice
For making characters and things that are not to be eaten: Wilton (Dries fast and is easy to work with.)

I love the Toba Garrett fondant: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-2127-Toba-Garretts-fondant.html

I haven't tried any other store-bought brands besides Wilton and haven't made any other besides MMF, which I don't really like much (but it's better than wilton's) but I don't have any reason to use any other. I love it. I haven't tried making molded characters with it or anything but I like to use gumpaste for that sort of thing.

can't say I've had any experience with anything but Satinice . . .for my first and only (to date) experience with fondant it was pleasant and trouble free . . . I had steered away from Wilton's based on the comments here stating it wasn't the nicest tasting product . . . who wants to spend time and money on something that nobody wants to eat?? Satinice was easy to work with . . . and although I have nothing to compare with . . . I would have to say it is "edible" . . . and to me that was important!! thumbs_up.gif

To eat... anything but Wilton! My kids say it tastes a little like play-dough and I think they are sorta' right. BUT I will have to agree with kassie73.. dries fast and is super easy!

MMF takes more time, but worth it!

thanks guys...the reason i asked is that i has to do the christening cake "at the lst minute" & all there is around here is wilton. i really want to order (make) something to have on hand, if something like this happens again

keep it coming icon_smile.gif

I haven't worked with fondant much. I'm going to make the MMF this weekend. But can someone tell me....is there a recipe for Satin Ice or is that something you purchase??

Thanks,
Susie

Satin Ice by far - I do alot of fondant work and this one by far comes out looking the best and it taste good! icon_biggrin.gif

I love using fondx and satin ice both are great. Fondx is soft to work with so the more you work it, it becomes too soft and will need to rest to get back to original texture. Satin Ice is great, soft for not as soft as fondx but you get great results. I usually buy both at cakedeco.com, shipping cost is great for me.
