I am pretty much just starting with cake decorating, and have only used the wilton brand fondant. Of all the other store bought fondant, which tastes best? icon_smile.gif

I like Satin Ice for straight store-bought stuff. For semi-homemade I make Jennifer Dontz's white chocolate fondant.

I like the taste of Fondx...no need to add flavorings. The Satin Ice chocolate is good as well. Have not used Satin Ice white. I have made some MMF that taste like the Fondx.

Yumm if Fondx tastes similar to MMF i want to try that...

i personally think the white Satin Ice tastes like a cousin to playdough. My mind doesnt think it's bad, but for some reason i dont want to continue eating it.
The chocolate Satin Ice is okay though.

Sorry that's all i know for pre-made fondants =) Althoough it seems like everyone on CC hates Wilton's fondant.... *shrug

Have you tried making your own? The MMF (marshmallow Fondant) it so much better than Wilton's, not even in the same league actually. AND it is so easy to make.. melt marshmallows, add sugar, knead, poof, fondant !
I can't really answer your question, but since your just starting out I thought maybe the homemade would be more practical.
I actually stayed away from fondant for YEARS because I hated the Wilton stuff so bad.

my wilton instructor always said mmf was not good for figures, only covering a cake because it was too thin. Is this true, or was she just trying to boost wilton sales? icon_confused.gif

I have ONLY ever used MMF and have made several figures, characters, hats, etc...and LOVE it...although I don't like the mess of icing sugar everywhere when I make it I won't use anything else because of the simplicity in the recipe, the cost effectiveness and the fact that it tastes the best of all that I have tried.

Good Luck & Have Fun!

I usually make mmf and don't really care for it, but I just tried Fondx, this stuff is good, I would eat it if it's on top of my cake. They say mmf taste like Satin Ice. don't know how true that is.

There are several marshmallow fondant recipes here on CC -- do a search in the recipes section. Also Michele Foster has a very good fondant (I haven't made it myself but it's gotten rave reviews.) That's also in the recipes section. icon_biggrin.gif

Wilton fondant tastes like what I imagine dishwater to taste like. YUCK!!! For a company so into cake decorating you would think they would come up with something better than cakes covered in fondant that tastes like dishwater
