I am very new here having only made one fondant covered cake, but it was really fun. I used the premade wilton fondant and would like to make some cute figures to go on cupcakes for a family party for next week but the flavor of the fondant leaves a little to be desired and I wondered if it can be flavored I'd love to make them lemon flavored...
Any suggestions

You can add flavor to the fondant. Just work it in. you may need some cornstarch to help with the stcking, or crisco on your hands.

Sure, you can add just plain ole lemon extract if you wish.

Thanks so much for answering my question and suggestions for working it in. I saw the wilton site where they made kids in inner tubes and I thought something like that would be adorable on cupcakes.

How much flavor?

Wilton fondant notoriously tastes bad. There are a lot of recipes on this site for making your own fondant and it's cheap and easy. And TASTY!

Good luck and if you need more help, just ask! thumbs_up.gif

i agree, wilton is icky, but for making figures, some prefer it to others, b/c it is cheaper. however, if you want to make something that kids will enjoy eating, try making marshmellow fondant. my kids LOVE it, though my hubby and i prefer satin ice.
