hi, i'm making my nephews birthday cake in a few weeks and I really don't want to buy premade fondant. Ive used it before and the taste was just awful. Does anyone have an easy fondant recipe that actually taste good? Thanks!

love, love, love MFF. Easy to make, cheap and add some white chocolate chips for a great taste. (I am not a fan of MMF, difficult to work with and a huge sticky mess)

Michele Foster's Fondant! SO much easier to work with than MMF and it tastes great too. I'll never make MMF again.

Very easy. It sounded like a lot of work to me when I first read the directions, but it was actually quite simple. I can't even say enough great things about it.

agree with AngelaM, takes very little time and so worth it. In the recipe, it says you can add 6 oz white chocolate chips, I find that 3 oz is more than enough.
I actually made her chocolate fondant for the 1st time this week, and it is just as easy and tasty (i use that as my base for black fondant)

yes, but color it when you are mixing the liquid (of course, it you need it 2 or more colors, do it when you are ready to use it) just easier to do when you are mixing the liquid
