What kind of fondant do think is the easiest to use for covering a large cake, including Michele Foster's and Satin Ice. Any idea? Thank you so much for your input.

I am covering a 18" round and a 18x24" rectangle. I have used MMF also, but prefer Michelle Foster's I think. Open to suggestions though. I like the taste of the homemade fondants better than Satin Ice MMF and Michelle Foster's both taste better I think, but I know a lot of people use Satin Ice and it is the only commercial one I have access to besides Duff's and Wilton and they are expensive and the old Wilton tastes horrible.

I used to swear by Satin Ice until I came across this...super-easy to work with, hasn't failed me yet, and FAR cheaper:

(Replace the vanilla & lemon extracts with either Princess or Buttery Sweet Dough emulsion...delicious!)

Definitely MFF with white chocolate added. I think chocolate makes the fondant stronger and easier to work with. The largest cake I've covered was a 15" round that was 3- 2" layers. With the filling added the cake ended up being 7" tall. I didn't have any problems covering it. HTH thumbs_up.gif

They are baking emulsions made by Lorann's. Hobby Lobby sells them. You can also order them on line.

They're an alternative to extracts...great flavor blends. The ones I use are Loranns...Hobby Lobby stocks them in 4oz bottles for about $5.
