What do you think of this fondant?

Taste/texture/how it handles?

I've read some good things and some bad. Looking to get some more thoughts on this brand of fondant.

I love using it and it's all I use now. I started off making my own, didn't like the inconsistencies, switched to Satin Ice, didn't like the inconsistencies, then my local cake shop started carrying Fondarific. You can order 6 samples on their website - you can choose the flavors, though my family prefer the buttercream flavor.

would you use buttercream on a chocolate cake? Will it taste good?

Im not a fan of chocolate cake but i am making one for my boyfriends birthday.

I tried Fondarific on some cupcakes I made recently. The taste was fine, but what I really liked was how easy it was to handle. If I was going to put it on a chocolate cake I would put dark chocolate ganache between the cake and the fondant.

I have been using fondarific for years now. I have many pales of it in my cake decorating place of business. I love it . It works and handles well. The people seem to love the taste of it, more then any other fondant I have ever used. Plus it comes in so many colors and great flavors, like the new coffee taste.GREAT!!! Good luck thumbs_up.gif

It is an awesome product. Here's why:
1) Numerous flavors. Would recommend the vanilla, buttercream, or chocolate for covering cakes. However, the watermelon flavor, I've heard, is also good enough as a cake covering.
2) Although higher-priced than other brands, you end up using less per cake because you can roll it out thinner than others.
3) It's self-healing makes it great to work with and you don't need to re-roll if you should tear it while placing on a cake.
4) Did I mention the flavors???!!!! I have had customers eat the entire cake (yes, the fondant, too) and loved every bit of it.
5) Lois & Laura are awesome to deal with. They built the business from the ground up and are willing to listen to their customer base for suggestions for future product.
6) Did I mention the flavors? LOL
