I've been making cakes for my kids for 5 years now. I'm only getter better at this. I've ventured out side my comfort zone and decided to do a wedding shower cake for my friends fiance. I'll post pic this week, but in the mean time I have a question on how thick to roll out the fondant? I've read between 1/8" thick is appropriate. We ate my trail cake today and it was delish and I loved how thin the fondant was. One thing I cannot stand is a very thick fondant. Not only is it expensive but no-one I know enjoys eating a thick piece of fondant. I also found it not so smooth, now was it because it was thin? pl help icon_biggrin.gif thx grazia

What kind of fondant are you using? If you use Fondarific or Chocopan you can roll it thinner than other brands.

I use MMF. I've always used MMF because I love the taste of it. Now I've heard that the fondant that Cake boss uses is just as good to work with but as tasty, does anyone know this to be true?xothx
