I just got Jennifer Dontz's dvd today and let me tell you, you gotta get one too. You just HAVE to.

Although I haven't made her fondant yet, I can already tell that it taste good and performs well. What I also love about the dvd are the new techniques she showed... oh and plus she is totally totally charming.

Just wanted to talk about it because Jennifer has changed my life-- even before I got the dvd. She is really really nice and is willing to help you with anything. She has patience and a lot of talents. THANKS JENNIFER DONTZ! THANKS YOU!

If you would like to purchase her dvd, you can check it out at

Believe me, its worth it.

I am curious, is chocolate fondant better tasting than marshmallow fondant? I find that Rhonda's marshmallow fondant tastes 100% better than regular fondant but it is a bit sweet. Does the chocolate fondant taste as sweet or less? Is it easier to work with? (marshmallows sure make it sticky to work with). Does the chocolate fondant work great for fine detail or figures/animals? Does it take to coloring just as well or better? Thanks for letting me know. Very curious about the dvd.

i agree, i have both her dvds and love to watch them over and over.. she does encourage us to use the pettinice.. and i did. if you are using other brands. then, you aren,t making her recipe.. pettinice taste great by itself..but then with her chocolate clay in it.. it taste even better.. and the pearl clay makes gorgeous pearls.. fixing to make them this week for a golden anniversay cake.. theres a certain amt. of pettinice to pearl clay in that recipe.. so , do get the pettinice when you make her recipe.. she has played around with others. and this recipe is what she came up with .. to make her beautiful cakes.. etc. hth

Is this recipe posted or can it only be found on her DVD? Thanks!

Most folks tire of making MMF at some point, and move on to making any number of fondant recipes that can be found in here. Don't want to endorse one over another since this is a J. Dontz plug, and I have yet to try hers!

But yes, MMF is what I call sickly sweet and frustratingly messy....sooo messy.

This recipe can only be found on her dvd. I don't think it would be right if someone posted her recipe somewhere since that would be unfair to her.

RylanTy- I agree with you totally!! I have never heard of JD, I'm new to all of this and was just curious to see if the recipe was on CC or not. You are right! Thanks so much.

I am also a huge Jen fan! Her fondant is the best. I love the way it works and doesn't dry out, you have more time to perfect it.
I haven't tried coloring it a dark color but it takes lighter shades fine. I find it to be less sweet that mmf. I have not made figures with it, i usually use the pettinice with tylose for that.

Her pearl clay is also awesome!

Buy her DVD's and you will not be disappointed.

Nailady, oh no problem. I totally understand.

I bet you, you will love it. I've read reviews and everyone who tried it loved it.

Take Care.

Just had my first taste of Satin Ice. I had no idea it's marshmallow. Weird. I always make my own with gelatin and glycerin and such. Mine tastes so much better than Satin Ice. I need to market and brand mine.

Plus, I need to try this pearl clay. Is it just a combination of modeling chocolate and fondant?

Which DVD has the fondant/chocolate clay, pearl clay?
