Can you Guys tell me which is the best fondant to use, and who sells it at a most reasonable rate.

Thanks in advance for your help

It is all a matter of personal opinion. I like Satin Ice. I buy it online from Into The Oven . com. They have the best prices that I have found online.

I make my own MMF. It is easy to make & does not cost much at all.

Thanks foe the replies guys, I did buy some Satin Ice and Choco Pan from Global Sugar art and I thought that was reasonable, but I will check out into the oven, I don't have time to make Fondant right now but hopefully some day. please keep the replies coming, Sharon Zambito recommended Massa Grassa I hope it spelled it right but it is kind of expensive.

I have only used Wilton once(no one liked the taste) and Satin Ice since then. I see many people on the site make their own. Is there that big of a difference in taste or is it just more cost effective?

I've only tried Wilton's, and it was horrid. Since then I've made my own MMF. The cost difference is amazing, and I LOVE marshmallows, so of course I like the taste!! It's so easy to make, too. I use the recipe that only takes marshmallows, water, and icing sugar.
I'd like to try Satin Ice, but where I live it's just not a possibility.

I make the MMF because it is easy, and does not take alot of time. The recipe I use just uses marshmallows, water, butter & vanilla flavor. Mmmm yummy. I might not make a cake for a month or more, ( not professional, just for family and close friends) so this way is cost effective for me. And my daughters like helping me add ingredients. I have never tried Satin Ice, so I can't compare taste to it.

I live in a small town and the only fondant I can buy locally is Wilton. After the feedback I received the first time I used it, I went looking for an alternative. I have to order my Satin Ice online, but I think it is worth the hassle. I inteed on trying to make my own, but wanted feedback on what the opinion of homemade vs. Satin Ice was.

I live in a small town too, and walmart only sells Wilton, I bought Satin Ice, and Choco Pan, from Global Sugar Art. I have not used it yet, but I ate it and it taste great, I had to hide it from my kids so they don't eat it out. I don't know if I will ever make fondant, because I am too lazy, but maybe someday.

Try MMF, it's easy, taste good and is very inexpensive. When you have confidence in yourself, give Michille Foster's Fondant a try. Simple, fast, cheap, taste good and wonderful to work with. Don't be afraid to experiment.
