So I made my first fondant covered cake for my friends daughter at homechurch. Up until now I have only used fondant as an accent. I am first and foremost a baker so I love the reactions I usually get about the flavor of my cakes. This time though I watched in horror as each and every person peeled off the fondant (a mix of white choc leather and white choc fondant made with ghiardelli compounding chocolate so no low quality ingredients here) and put it to the side of their plate as they ate the rest of the cake. They loved the look but missed my white choc cream cheese buttercream and didnt care for the texture of the fondant.
I wish there was a fondant that people actually wanted to eat and that melted in your mouth instead of having that chewy consistency that noone seems to appreciate.
I think its a personal preference. I don't like to eat the fondant, but my son loves it. He would eat that without the cake. And I know lot of children love to eat fondant.
I love fondant and so do my kids - a lot of others don't. What can you do?
Please feel free to forward the leftover fondant you have there (not the bits discarded from the cake eaters though!)
I dont mind fondant (especialy mine ) so i get frustrated but oh well. if i could master the`edges on a cake smoothed with viva i guess this wouldnt be an issue
I like the taste of fondant especially satin ice. I just did a cake over the weekend for a customer who never ate fonant before and today she sent me a message telling me how much everyone loved the cake with the fondant. I guess it's to each their own..
I prefer eating frosting over fondant but my oldest son LOVES eating MMF, I have to hide it from him. Everyone is different. Some people just don't know what it is and after you tell them is basically all sugar they'll try it, not all will like it though. If if pains you to see it removed then just keep using it as accent rather than cover.
Momma.........try Marshmallow Fondant.....I did this past weekend and its awesome compared to regular fondant and it does melt in your mouth. I will never use regular fondant again.
I don't have a problem with customers eating SatinIce. they do like it.
