Hi I'm new here. Just wondering what everyone's favorite brand of fondant is to use? I'm just sick of making my own fondant and/or MMF so I was wondering what the general consensus is? Satin Ice? Pettinice? Choco-Pan? etc.?
I love Carma fondant. It is very easy to work with and does not dry out quickly as some of the others.
It kind of depends on what I'm using it for. For white, ivory, or fondant I plan to color myself, I use FondX. It is very forgiving and has a nice flavor. If I'm being lazy and just want to buy pre-colored fondant, particularly black or red, I use Satin Ice. I don't like the workability or the flavor as well as the FondX, but I do love the rich color palette that is available. If I need fondant for cookies or cupcakes, something purely for flavor, I use Fondarific. It has, by far, the best flavor. But it never dries out and I dislike the working consistency. I really think it comes down to personal preference and what it's intended for.
I like Fondx it tastes great and easy to work with
I agree with LuLuSweetArt, it depends on what I'm doing with it.
Chocopan for wedding cakes is my fav. I 've used all three of their white shades. The taste is great. I use Duff's black and red for accent pieces when I need those colors because I can get it locally with a 40% off coupon. I like Satin Ice also for general use.
Where do you guys get these different brands of fondant? I am stuck using Wiltons and I would love to try something else but never see them at the cake stores etc. I know there is online...but is that the route everyone goes.
I am with idgalpal and the 40% off coupons. We are shopping at the same places...LOL.
Have you printed them off the internet and gone to every store in town to get everything 40% off. I have to admit I have. Shameful I know...but also true.
