I'm going to be making my mom's birthday cake in a two weeks. She saw a picture of a cake in the Wilton 2009 yearbook that she really loves. For those that have the yearbook its on the inside of of the cover. Its a pretty simple design. I'm going to cover it in fondant but do all buttercream decorations. What I can't decide is what brand/type of fondant I want to use. I can't decide between making rolled buttercream, or buying one of the following Fondarific buttercream flavored fondant, Satin Ice, or Choco-Pan. I am really leaning toward the Fondarific or the rolled buttercream but just can't decide. Any suggestions?

I personally use Satin Ice but I would suggest you try out Jennifer Dontz semi homemade recipe. Check out her site to get her dvd.

I recommend the buttercream flavored Fondarific. That stuff tastes yummy!

Thanks everyone. I've used MMF before and love it. Its so easy to make and use. I've just been very intrigued by other types/brands out there and am dying to try some other types of fondant. Along with the fact I don't really feel like making fondant, lol and that I want more of a buttercream flavor then marshmallow flavor. I suppose I could add some vanilla flavoring to the MMF. Seems I still haven't gotten any farther with my decision eh.

Choc o pan is very tasty but a little harder to work with.
