Can I add extracts or anything to Wilton fondant to make it taste a little bit better? I messed up my batch of homemade fondant last night and the cake needs to be finished tonight icon_sad.gif

Hi, madicakes! You can always add some LorAnn oil flavoring to it...that is what I do when I am in a pinch and dpn't have time to make my own fondant....just kneed it in really well so it is all incorporated evenly. icon_biggrin.gif

Just knead in some extract. It will help the flavour. Add more if you want to enhance it.

Good advice. Never thought of that! I have a batch in the pantry that I was trying to figure out what to do with! Thanks!

When I saw this question, I was thinking, "Hmmm...Shave your tongue? Or burn it?" I need to know, did the LorAnn help? How was it?

I add a little modeling chocolate to mine and it makes it nicer to work with and adds a bit of flavor, however I have to say that the new wilton fondant taste alot like satin ice to me

I have never tasted the new Wilton fondant. I tasted the old one though< full body shudders > ...I still have nightmares, lol. icon_biggrin.gif I am not sure if I am willing to try the new one or not, you know what they say, "Once bitten, twice shy."

The new Wilton Chocolate Fondant tastes like a tootsie roll. It was amazing! For the 'new' fondant, is that just the new color selection, or did they change the taste of the white as well?

If you coat a really thin layer of OraJel on it it might help!!!LOL
