I'm making a tire cake and needed some black fondant. I've always used Satin Ice but have been wanting to try different fondants to see if there is something I like better. I purchased 6lbs of the black elite fondex. I tasted it and do not like the flavor at all. To me it has an artificial raspberry taste and is bitter. I have played with it a little bit and it seems like it will be easy to work with but I'm not sure I can get past the taste. Has anyone else used it? I'm hoping it will taste a little better when eaten with cake and buttercream. Any opinions?
By the way I just recently used Choco pan and loved it. Next I plan on trying Massa.
I love using Satin Ice for my modeling, but I seem to have a problem with it cracking when covering a cake with it.
I use Fondarific/Duff's for black. I like it a lot. Sorry I couldn't help on the ones you already have.
I've used both the Duff in black and the Fondx in black. I prefer the Duff brand's taste, but liked the workability of the Fondx better. And I liked choco pan as a snack, but had one heck of a time trying to cover a cake with it. I almost threw it against the wall. lol
