Has anyone ever used Fondx fondant? I was just wondering how easy it was to work with and the taste and anything else helpful! Thanks in advance!!

It's similar to Satin Ice and tastes really good. =o) It's more expensive than Satin Ice though.

I find it quite soft and hard to work with. I prefer a fondant that is firmer.

I have never tried satin ice before...does it taste better than wiltons fondant? And is it easy to work with?

I bought some at the Austin cake comp this past Feb. When I have used it, I found it to be grainy no matter how much I kneaded it and yes, I followed the instructions on the tub. Maybe I'm spoiled on Satin Ice (or maybe it just works better in Humid Houston)?
I know others use it with much success, so it's a personal thing - try it all and find what you like and what agrees w/your climate (well, home's micro-climate). I don't care for Pettinice, either...unless I need a somewhat rough texture w/o embossing it, like my tomb cake. The three all taste good, it's just down to what you like to work with. icon_smile.gif

I really like working with Fondx and the taste. I don't like the Wilton taste or the stiffness of the mix; it seems to be much gummier to me. Fondx is much smoother. I have worked with Satin Ice chocolate, not the white.

I love FondX!!! I usually buy a few 10 lb. buckets at OSSAS for $20 each. That's a prety good price.
