Has anyone done it? Did it improve the taste? What did you use?
Thanks for your input...
*LOL*... still tastes bad.... buy something else....
I too would love to know; Im making a cake for my sis (last minute) And she does not want to cough up 25 bucks for pettinice.
I cannot make it MMF (becasue Im using my friends house to do it and shes got nosy little kids that are going to be all up in my BIZ I can't work like that.);
so WILTON FONDANT is the winner. Hope it works out
I have a bunch of it left over from a Wilton class I took that I want to use up, so I was hoping I could somehow improve the flavor.
could you add some tylose to it and use it for fondant flowers and bows and such?
earlene moore says to use the lorann oils. like lemon , maybe others. i,m not that familiar with all the flavors. i haven,t tried it. but i trust her opinion. i have added chocolate clay to mine and it taste really good. some call it modeing chocolate. if you are familiar with this. if not, recipes on this site and other sites also. you would use 1/4 lb. of chocoalte clay to 1 lb. of fondant. hth
Hey - thanks for the ideas. I might try the chocolate clay idea mostly cuz I don't have time to order the oils.
Love this site and all you great people! Someday- I hope I can be as helpful as all of you!
I used modeling chocolate to flavor mine. I mixed it 50/50 and it was awesome. Couldn't even tell it was Wilton. I've only had to use it once but I'd use it again mixed with the modeling chocolate. Using white chocolate you can color it as well.
I can understand having left over and not wanting it to go to waste but I would also just use it for embellisments I would then remove from the cake before serving. That stuff is just not good to eat.
Wilton has apparantly changed their recipe recently and the taste is greatly improved. According to Sugarshack, it tastes a little like Satin Ice now, a little chewier but much better. I'm going to pick a small box up this weekend and check it out too...
Edited: There's a thread about it starting to form in this forum...
yep, I just opened a box and it was not bad at all! Sweet, kinda chewy like all the others, but no chemical smell or taste. I will be trying it on a cake this week. They have def changed something!
But you can use Lorann oils if you like as well in any fondant, and the candy clay as mentioned is a great idea as well.
Here's the thread. Amazing! http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=677015
If you have the old stuff and it still tastes yucky, I agree, just use it for modeling. I always have it on hand for modeling figures that I don't intend to be eaten, esp. when I don't want to bother coloring my fondant.
