Hi,

I use a recipe from this site for MMF (marshmallow fondant). It tastes pretty good (WAY better than Wilton) and is easy to handle. There are great tutorials on YouTube for applying fondant -- when you have some time look them over and then practice, practice, practice! icon_biggrin.gif

Hi,

I was also looking for a great fondant and on CC I found a bunch of great reviews for fondarific available at fondarific.com. It comes in lots of flavors, buttercream, vanilla, and chocolate as well as fruit flavors like lemon, melon, orange and more. The reviews all said they taste like starburst. It is expensive, but you can order a sample pack for $6. I just ordered 3 sample packs tonight!

Hi, I like to use Michele Foster's recipe. She has an updated recipe on here and some FAQ's posted on her website:

The recipe on CC:

She posted the other day that she made a mistake in the recipe. It should be 2 tbsp gelatin, 2 tbsp glycerin and 2 tbsp of butter instead of 3.

I use MMF! And most people that have tasted mine love it.
