Wilton fondant is nasty stuff. Try Satin Ice, it tastes like marshmallows!

I only use Wilton Fondant for practicing. I think it has a terrible taste and texture. I only use Satin Ice Fondant. It tastes fantastic, so smooth to work with! I work with the Chocolate alot and it tastes like a tootsie roll. HUGE selling point! I also prefer it because I can purchased it precolored in tons of colors. I would still like them to add a good orange to the collection....I'm sure they are working on it.

I love that I can depend on the color and its quality. Batch after Batch. I've used it for years and have never been frustrated or disappointed. And no, I'm not in any way affiliated with the Satin Ice Fine Foods corp., Just a very happy customer!

I use Wilton to cover boards - tastes terrible! I have used Satin Ice, but after Nicholas Lodge introduced me to Massa Americana, I'll never go back. It is the BEST ever! Very easy to work with. It may seem a little pricey, but you are able to roll it so thin that it goes a long way. I've had people who say they hate fondant, but once they try the Massa, they quickly change their minds.

The Wilton fondant is okay if you flavor it with candy flavoring. I personally don't care what you do to it, I don't like the taste or texture and it doesn't matter what kind.

Trust me if you try fondarific, you will change your mind, they have lemon, tutti,frutti, chocolate,orange, strawberry and a couple of other flavors, try their site they sell some samples for 6.99 including shipping you cannot go wrong. you get 5 good size pieces.

The only fondant i have brought and really like is satin ice. I tried wiltons fondant once on a piece of cake it was really nasty!

I use MMF for accents and Fondx for covering the cakes. Fondx tastes great and is easy to work with.

SandiOh Posted 29 Sep 2009 , 7:18pm

I tried Pettinice(Bakels) recently, it wasn't too bad but left an aftertaste. Has anyone compared that to Satin Ice? I also tried Fondarific which I liked the best so far....it's still not as nice as Michele Foster's Fondant. But I'm sick of making fondant....I'm with Ally and just using MMF for decorations and buying fondant to cover cakes.

Melony Posted 29 Sep 2009 , 7:36pm

I really like "Satin Ice". It's very easy to work with. I've also used "Fondarifiic" as well and I have to say that it is the best tasting fondant by far (IMO). icon_smile.gif

Where do you buy your fondant?

I use Jennifer Dont's semi homemade chocolate fondant. Easy to work with and it tastes good. The recipe is on her DVDs (jennifermi)

coconooch Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 2:23am

thank you, everyone! i'm definitely trying a few. icon_lol.gif

Rylan Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 3:29am

I was going to suggest Jennifer Dontz's but if you want premade, here is what I will suggest:

1. Chocopan
2. Fondx
3. Satin Ice

Ditto! Fondarific is the best IMHO. And the ladies there are soooo sweet to work with.

Sweet_Treats_1 Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 5:47am

The Fondarific is really GOOD. The blueberry is delicious, the melon is yummy and the tutti fruity is really good. The chocolate taste like a tootsie roll. Ive also had the vanilla, buttercream, lemon, orange and strawberry. All very good. I mostly use the buttercrem and chocolate simply because that's what is requested, but my favorite is the blueberry

SandiOh Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 2:34pm

does the fondarific roll out well? I tried a sample, but didn't roll it out.

nonnyscakes Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 2:42pm

I like the idea of having the Fondarific pre-flavored and colored, but it is so expensive. It's nearly $35 for 5 pounds.

Is it really worth the extra $$ ?

Cakeonista Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 2:53pm

I use Satin Ice and love it. Sometimes if I need a lot of plain white I will make some MMF, its much cheaper but as far as colors go Satin Ice's color are so vibrant and beautiful. I would love to try fondarific but I do not like the fact that the color determines the flavor. Very weird to me. I may want a blue fondant but not a blueberry flavor...know what I mean? Anyway I say Use Wilton for non eating purposes like boards and things, it really rolls beautifully but Satin Ice to eat.

The fondarific has always rolled out very smooth for me. The chocolate takes a little more kneeding, but I zap in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds and that does the trick. Very pliable and smooth. It is $33 for the 5lbs, but it does taste very good and I think its worth it. I dont want my buisness to be know for delicious cakes with crap frosting. I have never tried making MMF, but I have heard that it taste good, but has a problem cracking.

No worries, just buy the white and color it with blue icing color (or whatever other color you're trying to achieve). It accepts color beautifully! thumbs_up.gif

It is also very good if U mix the vanilla, with the buttercream flavor. Very Yummy!!. Fonadarific has also come out with a Wedding White, but I have not tried that yet.

I don't care much for Pettinice...I like FondX but I started buying Satin Ice because it came in bigger containers...and a little cheaper...and I do really like it. I also occasionally get the colored ones if I know I have a big cake of a dark color coming up...and the chocolate is nice too (although I don't care for the chocolate flavor).

I'm lucky to have a bakery supply nearby to order from.

Where can this be purchased I would like to try it?

3Sisters Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 5:55pm

I purchase mine directly from Nicholas, but it may also be ordered from Albert Uster Imports. Their website is www.auiswiss.com. Nicholas Lodge's is www.nicholaslodge.com. The people there are GREAT!! Another nice thing about Massa, is that the taste is very mild, so it may be flavored with any flavor you would like.

Good Luck. icon_smile.gif

I was told that Albert Uster is the Rolls Royce of Fonadant. Is that the same as Massa?

3Sisters Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 7:39pm

Yes it is. But I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for and you really are able to roll it fairly thin so it does go futher than any others I have tried and it stays soft! Your cake will not get hard the way it can w/other brands.
