I'm considering doing some fondant on my daughter's 1st birthday cakes and would love to get some ideas on flavors to try before her birthday in January. I know there are some here that use fondant all the time, so I'm looking for flavors that have been tested and others thought were really good. Thanks for any and all suggestions!!!
That depends on the flavor of your cake.
For flavoring I have used :
Marshmallow; Peanut Butter; Cotton Candy; Cheesecake; Maple; Caramel; Mint; Hazel; Chocolate; Amaretto; Coconut; Cola; Honey Dew; These are LorAnn Oils Flavors I have used with MMF. But that totally depends on the cake flavor. I make sure the flavor agrees with the cake.
I've used vanilla and creme bouquet. Creme bouquet has a smoothe vanilla and citrus flavor.
Fondantgrl is right. Think of it as an extension of our icing. The flavor of your fondant must compliment your cake and icing flavors.
My favorite is barvarian creme, but I'm like the others and favor according to the cake it is going to be used on.
I like using "rose water" flavour in my MMF when covering white cake (or cookies for that matter) ... it make it taste "dreamy" like turkish delight.
