I would really like to ice my cookies in fondant, because of the look. However, I don't like the flavor of fondant on cookies. I prefer royal icing. How is the flavor of homemade MMF on cookies compared to store bought fondant ( I use Satin Ice).
I have worked with and had both store bought fondant and made my own MMF. The texture difference is that the MMF is stretchier. The taste. Well... The MMF tastes SOO much better! Not only I believe that but I have had several customers who have said they do not like the taste of fondant but when they tasted mine it was "awesome!" I suggest adding a little vanilla to it right after the marshmallows are melted before you add it to the powdered sugar. Or if you want a different flavor you could add a flavor instead of vanilla. I haven't tried the flavor yet but do vanilla! No comparison on taste against the stale store bought fondant!! Hope this helps!!
I don't like fondant on cake because of the texture...whether store-bought or homemade...
I do like MMF on a thick sugar cookie though...the MMF has to be rolled thin, then it's delicious.
