Has anyone every tried using Wilton's quick pour fondant? I am trying to make cupcakes look like basketball hoops and I need the cake pour with some sort of icing. I have read not to use royal icing as it will dry out the cake. Found the recipe for quick pour fondant and wanted to see what people thought out the taste.

I've tried it. I dipped my cupcakes into it, didn't pour it. It gave a them a really nice smooth finish (wish I had pictures) but I found the taste to be too sugary.

That is what I was worried about.....the taste. Does anyone else have any ideas of what I can use instead of quick pour fondant?

Here's one from the gallery where the decorator used fondant for the basketball and buttercream for the net.

If you were really going for the dipped look, I wonder if maybe you could nuke some of your buttercream just a bit to get it thinner, then dip using that?

You could always ice the cupcake in buttercream and cut out a round of fondant, then lay that on top of the buttercream. There are tons of examples in the cupcake gallery. Here are a few.
