What's your favorite fondant to work with, and why?

I've mostly used Satin Ice. I tried Chocopan once, and while I loved the flavor, I found it very difficult to work with. What other brands have you tried, and how do they compare?

This has probably been discussed a thousand times, so if there's an old thread you can point me to, that'd be fine! icon_wink.gif

My favorite is Michele Foster's fondant (recipe can be found on this site). Up until about a year ago, I used Satin Ice, but when they had all of their problems with producing a consistent quality product, I switched to Michele Foster's. Now it's the only fondant that I use.

Here are links to prior CC threads on this topic:

I'm limited by what I can get my hands on here in Mexico, but I like FondX a lot - both easy to work with and tasty. I use Satin Ice red and black, because it's too hard to tint fondant those colors. As far as home-made is concerned, I'm a big fan of Michele Foster's recipe, too.

I bought Satin ice and had a horrific batch! It is so expensive and it was so stretchy and wouldn't take color evenly! I am going to try pettinice I hear good things...but Michelle Fosters Fondant is a winner for sure!

I use Fondx exclusively. It tends to dry quicker than Satin Ice, but since I like to roll my fondant on shortening rather than cornstarch, it doesn't get so sticky. I also prefer the flavor of Fondx over Satin Ice. I used to purchase the colored Satin Ice, (red, black, hot pink) but since Fondx has come out with a line of colors I go Fondx all the way.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! I'm not a make-your-own gal, so I'll just have to settle for one of the second-bests! icon_wink.gif
