I was asked to do a cake last minute for a family friend. The only kind of fondant I can purchase around here so quick is the Wilton kind. My family hates this fondant.... dont blame em i dont think it tastes very good either. My questions are.... Can you add flavoring to this fondant to make it taste better? And I have never tried making my own fondant, always thought it was just easier to buy premade. Is this true? If homemade fondant is easy, what are some of the better recipes to use? I appreciate any help. I love working with fondant but if people dont like the taste, it really depreciates a cake.
Sure you could add flavoring to the wilton fondant. I had the same problem as you, the fondant was horrible. That was until I found the MMF (Marshmallow Fondant) recipe here on cake central, it has definately changed everyones opinion. It's not difficult to make either. It is worth the extra time to make it verses opening the box from the store.
