I'm not a big fan of fondant for cakes, I don't like the taste at all. What is your favorite fondant recipe? Or is there a supplier you purchase from? I would like to do more fondant cakes... but I hate that people just peel it off. I need to find a tasty one.... THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
Rhonda's Ultimate MMF in CC recipes or FONDX
I had been making my own mmf. Recently, Satin Ice was on sale. It would have cost me the same to make mmf, as purchased Satin Ice . I purchased it from Globalsugarart.com.
I found the Satin Ice more durable then homemade mmf. There is something very nice about just reaching into a bucket, and not have to knead 10X into mmf for 15 minutes before you have something decent to work with.
That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!
Fondx is my favorite!
I love my SatinIce. I have used Wiltons, Fondx and MMF and really keep coming back to SI. I love how easily it rolls in the Sweetwise Mat and how smooth it covers cakes.
I make MMF, especially like making it with the pink/strawberry marshmallows when I need pink fondant and it goes w/ the cake flavors. I buy SatinIce in black, chocolate, red, purple b/c the MMF gets hard to roll when you add too much food color. Duff's isn't bad if I get it w/ a coupon - I don't like Wilton.
I make my own fondant because it tastes so much better. For brown I add unsweetened cocoa. The exception being for for red and black (takes too much food coloring) and then I use Satin Ice. I don't recommend Wilton's. For a beginner I would recommend premade because homemade is a lot of work. Especially if you are covering multiple cakes with lots of detail. It's also worth investing in a machine to roll out your fondant.
mmf (marsh mellow fondant) is the very best or satin ice is the best fondants
I love michele fosters fondant (recipe found on this site) It tastes sooo much better than any of the premade fondants I've tried, and is soo much easier to make than MMF in my opinion. Also since you're making it yourself it is really easy to flavor it however you want. I've used almond, orange, lemon, mint, white chocolate almond (my fave!) If you get the country kitchen oils your possibilities are endless, though I usually just use whatever extract compliments the cake flavor I'm making. Good luck with whatever you decide to do, everybody finds the one that works for them
To work with Fondx flavor Fondarific. Many flavors to choose from. Orange cream, lemon, chocolate, cherry, strawberry, mocha was really good. You can order a sample pack for 6.00 includes shipping.
