I was wondering what is the best tasting fondant, I like working with the Wilton fondant but don't really like the taste. Any suggestion?

I've only worked with FondX, Satin Ice and Massa Ticino. The Massa Ticino is to die for, the FondX is very good and the Satin Ice (I only use red and black, so that may account for it) has sort of a chemical taste to it. For good-tasting home-made fondant, you can't beat Michele Foster's Fondant in any of its versions (all of which are in the recipe section here).

I haven't tasted them all but what I can tell you is Satin Ice (the non red and black) tastes good, fondarific tastes better but I find too soft to work with unless I'm in a very cold room.

I like Marshmallow Fondant and the chocolate mmf is great. I make it using chocolate marshmallows.

I prefer MMF, and so do my customers.

I've been looking to buy ready made fondant and so far have only found the Wilton brand one....where can I purchase fondx or fondarrific?

marye27 Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 8:54pm

Daani, You can buy Fondarific from http://fondarific.com

Daani Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 8:55pm

Thank You marye!!

I absolutely detest MMF. I made three batches last week. I don't know what it is, but that stuff is not fondant. I love the buttercream flavor SatinIce.

I like Michele Foster's fondant, but I always have a hard time workin with it. I follow the recipe to the T but I feel it comes out very stiff and it's a struggle to roll. So, on my last cake I used Satin Ice and it was a breeze to use!!

DrewsCrows Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 9:27pm

i use mmf but i have to believe it is not the easiest to work with. especially here in texas where it's humid. i've used fondx before, it's fantastic, but i just can't get over the price of fondant when i can make it so cheap. plus, my customers LOVE me for my mmf!

wilton? heck no.
satin ice? might as well be wilton.

Marianna46 Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 9:42pm

I find Michele Foster's easy to work with if I add a little shortening and some more powdered sugar and even a teaspoon of CMC/tylose per pound. I live where it's humid, too, and I almost always have to do this to my fondant to make it work, no matter what kind I use. You can get FondX from Global Sugar Arts, btw.

Michele Foster's FOR SURE!!! Made it twice now, followed the recipe exactly as stated and did not have any problems. This fondant is soooo good. I just made it this weekend, and every one of my guests ate the fondant and was asking for more of it. First time I've been to a party where I saw all the guests eat the fondant....most don't like it, but Michele's is really delish!

Paperfishies Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 10:30pm

I love Fondx!

wannabe_cake_maker Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 1:20am

I like Rhonda's MMF recipe on here. It works perfect for me everytime and tastes great. Since I am just a hobby baker I can't justify the cost of the premade brands right now.

Marina Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 2:14am

FondX Buttercream fondant is to die for!!! I can eat it like candy!!!

aprilismaius Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 2:06pm

I like the Buttercream flavored Satin Ice and the White Chocolate ChocoPan.

mrsg1111 Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 2:55pm

Satin ice! Hands down

imagenthatnj Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 3:01pm

White Chocolate Choco-Pan.

lorieleann Posted 19 Oct 2011 , 5:42pm

i like the taste and texture of the Satin Ice Buttercream--though I agree that the deeply colored varieties taste chemical.

I love the taste of Fondarific, but it is too soft for me. So maybe as a cover but not detail decorations.

I have a bunch of Fondx and Fondx Elite that i picked up at Cake Camp for a song ($5 a 2 lb tub!)

agree with the comments on Wilton and Satin Ice.

Could you please share the recipe

Xiony Posted 31 Oct 2012 , 6:32pm

MMF and Duff (Ace of Cakes) brand. 

TerrifiCake Posted 2 Nov 2012 , 6:37am

Satin Ice vanilla is my favorite one and I found that this is the one kids like the most.

 

I hope that helps :-)
