Has anyone used the black Fondx elite? I have been displeased with the black fondants I have tried( Satin Ice ,Duff, chocopan). I am looking for something that acts like my regular fondant.
I haven't tried it, but I would also love to hear the answer. All the black I have tried is too soft and a bit sticky.
I bought the black fondx elite at OSSAS show this fall. I don't normally work with fondant so can't tell you about how it works. I added tylose and used it in my Circut to cut black cats and bats for Halloween cookies.
I am curious if it stays pliable, I thought duff's was too stiff and satin ice cracked(I rolled both types between clear plastic). Just very disappointed by both.
Fondex is all I use. I love the black elite. Works as well as the virgin white as far as I'm concerned. I use lots of the elite colors purple, hot pink, lime , red all fantastic
Thanks sweetgirl, I was hoping it was better. I can't wait to try it.
I too have tried the Fondex black elite. Like all the Fondex products it works great and is much cheaper then Satin Ice. And a bonus, the black elite has a choc flavor. Yum.
Thank-you for your input.
Great info! I tried black Satin Ice and it cracked, didn't like it at all. I even called S.I office thinking the batch was bad. They checked the batch # and tried it out themselves, called me back and said No there was nothing wrong with their fondant. So I guess it's supposed to look like that. (cracked). Glad to hear there is a decent black fondant out there! Thanks!
Fondx is so much better to work with then SI, and thats from plenty of user experience.
SI was dry, cracking, and then the fondx elite was smooth, pilable and easy to use
I had the same problem with SI, I am not a fan.
If you have problems with black fondant knead some chocolate fondant and a bit of white into it. One hard fondant, one soft and squishy fondant and you get one pliable smooth and still black fondant.
I loved the black fondx, it stayed pliable and draped really well without cracking!
