Are any of you having trouble with Fondx Elite? The issue I am having is, even after adding tylose, I cannot get it to harden like it should. I've had the same issue with fondarific.
What fondant do you recommend, especially black and red?
Also, I've not ever seen it, but can you get gumpaste in colors?
FondX Elite, Fondarific, & Duff's fondant are all candy melt based. They contain much, much more fat than regular fondants.
They don't respond to the addition of tylose or other gums in the same way. They don't dry the same way.
I wondered that...because of the addition of chocolate. What fondant do you feel works the best?
I use Satin Ice & FondX most of the time. I find that both taste good and are the least expensive for me.
I always keep some Wilton fondant on hand, just in case my SI or FondX "acts up" by being too soft. I then add in 1/3rd to 1/2 Wilton and everything is good to go.
Hi and thanks again! I have been using fondx and have been happy with it, but the shop where I buy it started carrying the fondx elite...I don't really like it. I have the black and I swear it smells like grape, but there is no grape anywhere on the ingredient list.
