Do you buy fondant, or make it? If you buy it, which one is the best to work with / tastes the best? icon_biggrin.gif

I use Michele Foster's, too. It has a good flavor. I found that when I was kneading it after it rested overnight, that I had to keep buttering it with crisco to make it workable. Adding extra glycerin as recommended did not help.

have any of you tried white chocolate fondant? I'm not sure it exist, but if does where did you find the recipe?

I use satin ice and love it! I also get compliments on the taste all the time!

Satin Ice is the BOMB! It is worth buying, it is smooth as a satin ribbon and is so much easier to mold to the bottom of cake.

I just made Michele Foster's Fondant (with the 6oz of white chocolate and French Vanilla coffee creamer) for the first time and the taste is UNBELIEVABLE! Love it! I'm letting it rest for the afternoon and will be laying it on my cakes tonight, so how well that all goes is yet to be determined, but I'll let you know! I used to use Wilton and loved the consistency of it, but the taste was not so great... pretty tasteless. I tried Marshmallow Fondant and that was pretty good, but had a hard time with the consistency with certain batches... I guess that's what happens when you make your own...

Jennifer Dontz's semi homemade fondant. Check out her dvd for the recipe.

I make my fondant using the recipe from the wilton yearbook. I also work for a high end bakery in Ft Lauderdale, she also uses the same recipe. IT TASTES NOTHING LIKE THE PREMADE WILTON FONDANT. It's good and easy to work with.

Which yearbook is the wilton fondant recipe in (which year). I'm sure that satin ice is great but I'm newbie, I'm not willing to pay for fondant to practice with. When I start getting customers I will try satin Ice

I'm a dedicated Satin Ice User! I know exactly what I'm getting everytime I purchase it. No surprises. No disappointments...ever. Their range of colors are fantastic. In my opinion, it is worth every penny.

Yes! If you factor in the time it takes to shop for and make home made fondant, I think Satin Ice is well worth the money!

I just tried Fondarific for the first time this weekend on several cakes and LOVED it!!! I can't say enough great things about it... no cracking, smooth as silk and needs NO powdered sugar or Crisco to roll out and it can be rolled out nice and thin and it tastes great. (the fruit flavors are really fun). PLUS, the ladies out there at Fondarific are a complete joy to work with! Satin Ice always cracks on the edges for me and I got so fed up and tried this fondant. I will never use anything else. But there are LOTS of people that swear by SI so.... Maybe my issues with SI are because of the climate here in CO... who knows.
