Hi everyone!
I have several questions that I would like to ask about Fondant. I am practicing " before " I try and take any cake orders.

I have found out that only 3 people in my area use Fondant on their wedding cakes, other than these, anyone in my area would have to travel 3 hours away to get a cake. So.... I have a couple of questions...

1. What type of Fondant do you use on your cakes. The Wilton brand doesn't taste very good. I have heard that the Satin Ice Brand is the best, but this has to be ordered and for a small decorator its not really practicable. Is there a fondant that you can make that is kind of like the Satin Ice in taste?

Thanks for all your help!!!

People rave about Michelle Foster's fondant (recipe is on this site). I made it once and didn't get on very well with it (I think I left it too long before using). Marshmallow fondant is very easy to make at home, and is fairly easy to work with. I'd suggest starting with that.
Good luck!

Can you tell me where Michelle Foster's fondant recipe is located at? I went to recipes and did a search for this. It can back that there was no recipe.
