Hey everyone...never done this "forum" thing before...I need to cover a cake with black fondant and I was wondering if anyone has any feedback about the best tasting ones?
Satin Ice is my favorite because it takes good and it's affordable. Fondx is the other brand that I sometimes use. Fondarific is very good but very expensive.
Cylstrial: Can you get black FondX or are you just talking about fondant in general? (I'd really like to know, as it would make life so much easier.)
reebee: If you're colouring it yourself, it's usually what (powder, gel) and which brand of colour you use that determines the difference.
I added a black powder (supplier brand) to my fondant and it tasted really bitter.
Otherwise, I have been told that Satin Ice's Black Fondant has a vanilla flavour and is very nice.

Ditto! I tried to make MMF the other day because I ran out of S.I. and it was a disaster! When I can afford to splurge, I prefer Fondarific
I just discovered Fondx (just $20 per 10 pound bucket at Cake Camp) and it tasted wonderful.
I also suggest you try out Jennifer Dontz's semi homemade fondant. The recipe is on her dvd.
Now I gotta go back to Cake Camp tomorrow to get some more.
Wow! Thanks for all your help! I'll have to order it online...I have nowhere local that carries any kind of supplies!
Satin Ice. Love it. Works up well. Tastes good.
I agree, Satin Ice is the best I've used/tasted. And it's affordable.
