If anyone has tried it does it taste good? Does it roll out well?

It is actually just another name brand product repackaged with his name on it. Can't remember which name brand though. I'll never buy it because the cost is way to $$$$$ for me.

I think I read on another thread that it is Fondex.

I purchased the brown with a 50% coupon, so it cost me $10 for 2 lbs. For me, the price was fine that way since I don't have the time or energy right now to make my own. My local restaurant supply store sells 2 lbs of Satin Ice for $15, so this actually was $5 less, and much closer to my house. I only make cakes for family, so buying in smaller amounts is better for me.

It was chocolate flavored, like a Tootsie Roll. It was good but very soft. Maybe that's because of the chocolate. If I need brown, black, or red fondant, I would definitely buy again. (As long as I can use the 50% off coupon!)

I just read that it is Fonderific. In fact there is another thread on this subject going on right now.

If you do a forum search for Duff fondant, you will see that it has been discussed. Possibly you can find an answer to your question there.

I knew it was something starting with the letter F! I've never tried either one, so had not clue! Thanks for the correction.

Oh, I should also mention that I have heard that Duff has his name on two different brands of fondant, sold at different places. The one I bought was from Michaels. (I think the other brand might have been Satin Ice.)

I have tried Duff' buttercream flavoured white fondant. It tastes great is very soft and not white but a cream colour. It is expensive but with the coupon not to bad for me as I don't use alot of fondant. I did buy the red and black as those coulours are so hard to make but not tried them yet.

I have not tried it yet myself, but since I need a brown fodant for a wedding cake coming up, I'm thinking that it would be easier than mixed to get the correct color. That would be the only way I would purchase it, for the colors, and of course with a Michaels coupon!
