Right now I have been using the marshmallow fondant. I am curious what others are using and if you make your own. The problem that I have with the mmf is that when it gets really humid here, the fondant is not workable. Or if anyone has a way to keep from melting, I would love to hear about it.

I've tried Duff's Fondant (hated it, smelled greasy, looked greasy, and was the creamest white I've ever seen), and Virgin Ice and Glacier fondant, which are both really only available in Canada I think. I really like the Glacier fondant so far though, it's a marshmallow fondant that's fairly easy to work with.

I've heard of people having great success by mixing half Wilton with half Satin Ice. Great flavour and great workability they say. icon_smile.gif

Just recently made Jennifer Dontz's white choc fondant using Pettinice as the base and it tastes pretty darn good!! I have been using Fondx before I tried hers. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I make MMF and now I have included Jello MMF. I love that stuff.

I use Michele Foster's Fondant as well. It's "hands down" the best fondant that I've ever used. It is easy to make and for workability it's second to none. The taste is out of this world. I can eat it by the handful's. It's that good. thumbs_up.gif 99.9% of the time I make the white chocolate version. I add a 6 ounce box of Baker's White Chocolate squares to each batch.

You can find her recipe here on cc. Go to recipes and type Michele Foster's fondant in the "search" box.

I've never had good results with MMF. I've made it several times using several different recipes. It just doesn't work for me.
