I see so many beautiful fondant cakes on here I have a question.
Most cakes I get orders for are butter cream and very few fondant.
Does everyone else get orders for fondant and does all this
fondant get eaten?
Everyone I talk to about fondant cakes say they do not like fondant.
The fondant I use tastes good (like candy corn) it is Satin Ice, but still it is the texture that people don't care for. Do most people still pick it off instead
of eating it?
It seems like such a waste
It may be a waste as far as consuming it goes, but it is much easier to decorate than buttercream (well, at least I'm a total buttercream klutz!) and it keeps the cake fresher longer. I basically make only fondant cakes, but strangely enough, I find that about as many people eat the fondant as do buttercream (some people just don't like icing, period). On the other hand, here in Mexico, sweets tend to be sweeter in general than in the US, so that might explain it.
