what is your favorite fondant to use and why? I have been using Marshmellow fondant for 3ys and I really want to try something else becuz MMF is so unpredictiable. I have heard wilton is horrible tasting? Maybe try satin Ice? is it dry? ....Thanks for the help!

I like SatinIce and have used it for years. I also like PettinIce, but it is softer than SatinIce. Wilton tastes and smells horrid. HOWEVER, I have been know to mix Wilton and Satin 50/50. You get the good taste of Satin and the easy workability of Wilton.

I use the satin ice but find it to be dry, I add crisco to it but sometimes it still cracks on my corners. Fondarific, I cannot figure out how to use it! the two buckets I bought are still in my pantry icon_sad.gif it's like taffy and it just sticks to everything... any suggestions??

I use a little powdered sugar with my Fondarific - try it again it is a very forgiving fondant and I never have dry cracks or "elephant skin"
