I've been using SI for a while now. Like many others, i have had a number of problems with it (tearing, elephant skin etc..) and i really have no problem with its taste. But ive heard that Fondx is really easy to cover cakes with and tastes great. Do you think i should convert? Can u pls write the pros and cons of Fondx. Thanks alot!

I have used both and I think I like Fondx a bit more. It is easier to work with and I dont get the tearing and elephant issues as with SI. I do however buy the premade blk and red SI.

I would suggest for you to try Fondx and compare the 2...but if I could choose...I would go with fondx

I only use fondx now, and I love it!
SI (especially the colored fondant) would dry and crack really fast...
and fondx is very user friendly.
I defintely recommend it icon_smile.gif

I wanted to try out Fondex, and Fonderrific, (sp?) but they cost way more $$ the SI. I cant justify the cost yet...Yes SI has its problems, but other than Wilton, and making it yourself its the way to go cost wise IMO.

I went to Bensalem, PA and got 2 10 lb tubs of Fondx. I opened the one tub and my DH and daughter loved the taste. I have yet to cover a cake with it but I will soon. I also noticed that the Fondx has an exp date. I have not seen an exp date on fondant before. Luckly I will need to use it soon.

I like Fondx and Fondarific better than SI, although I Still use it. Fondx is really stretchy and I have never had "elephant skin" problems with it. I do use the black Fondx exclusively.
