I'm looking for a new fondant to use on an upcoming cake. I usually use SI... but it seems that its too sticky when I use it lately icon_confused.gif . Are there any other suggestions other than Wilton?
TIA

ChocoPan is delicious (tastes like chocolate). If you get it and it's hard, just start kneading and it will soften up so you can manipulate it.

Fondarific is also good and tastes great.

Marshmallow fondant is good, inexpensive to make and you can make the flavor whatever you want with some flavor oils.

Fondx is also very good and has good workability.

We used Carma brand at the bakery I worked at. I used SI at home but just didn't like it's finish. I recently tried Choco Pan and love it! It even goes from fridge to room temp without sweating.

I like Fondarific but you have to use it thicker than I like. I am going to try making MMF but I won't know how I like it in comparison until this weekend.

HTH.

I use Fondx (I get it delivered by the truck load, LOL)~ easy to use, nice texture and seems (for me) very forgiving.

Pettinice -- works great, tastes great. You can find it on line.

Thanks everyone icon_smile.gif ....I'll give Fondx and pettinice a try.

Ms. Sharon, I tried Wilton and it cracked terribly...I'm nervous to use it again!

I have had tremendous luck with both pettinice and fondariffic. fondariffic has been the easiest to work with. roll it out to 1/4" thick, no cracking, elephant skin etc. also does not get hard like all the others I have tried.
