I was kneading Duff's fondant and I notice that my hands where too greasy. The Characters look too shiny, Has anyone experience this? If you have. What you have done. Thanks for looking and responding... Have a Good one...
I love the Duff fondant, but I have found it impossible to make flowers and characters with it. It just refuses to dry hard! I have a flower forming tray full of flowers that were made 3 days ago and they are still soft enough to change shape when picked up! And they are thin! It definitely has a greasier texture than anything else I have tried. Since I don't cover cakes in fondant, I mostly use it for ribbons, borders, stripes....anything like that.
Duffs is just Fondarific.. If you search for that you will find tons of threads. It is a little softer and from what I have read you can't do animals, flowers or people etc cause it doesn't dry hard. Some say you can mix tylose which I haven't tried. I love it for covering cakes it is so easy to use but I just use Wilton for things I need to dry hard!
I thought Duff's black was too stretchy, but not greasy. I covered a cake with it last Friday (7/30), and it still is pliable on the cake. I can press my finger into it, and it "gives". And I think it (the black fondant) tastes like licorice.
