Hi,
I have been using Wilton fondant but am noticing other brand names when I read the blogs of long-time cake designers. Anyone know which fondant is the best to use? Thanks!

There is a recipe on this site for Michele Foster's it looks like a long drug out recipe but once you started it is fast and tastes great I've made it twice yummy both times. Good luck finding one you love.

I love the marshmallow fondant. For a while I refused to even make fondant cakes b/c I hated the taste of Wilton's so much. I don't find that the MMF is very difficult to make. There are plenty of good and highly rated recipes on CC. I recently purchased the FondX brand, but haven't tried it yet. I noticed lots of positive comments and have a very large 4 tier cake coming up that I don't want to make 4-5 batches of MMF for.

Not only does it taste good, but I like working with it, too. I used to use Satin Ice, but switched to making my own with this recipe and haven't turned back!

I've heard Satin Ice is very nice but I haven't tried it yet. I'm going to be using it in a few weeks to try, so I'll see how it goes. I've also only used Wilton and not a huge fan. I haven't tried making it either because of the time issues but if it comes down to a good cake I'll try making it.
