I had to work today so sent dh to the store to get some fondant. I mentioned Satin Ice and Duff's and he came home with Wiltons. (I need a gray so he got a white and a black for me to mix)

I only plan on using it as a ribbon around the bases of the 3 tiered wedding cake, and maybe as a bow or something on the extra cake.

I'm just wondering - is it easy/hard to work with? I think I read that it tasted awful - is that true?

It's not very tasty. But you can add any kind of flavoring and that will help. I think Wilton's is great to work with. Much better than Duff's and sufficient when I don't have Satin Ice. I don't cover a whole cake with it, but I use it a lot for accent pieces.

Great for accents. It is what I usually use for accents and save the good stuff for covering.

That's good to know! Thanks for replying. I'll be sure to pull the fondant ribbon off when I serve then.

I don't think there is a need to pull it off. It won't HURT the flavor of the just doesn't add much. Let the people see the pretty ribbon and decide if they want to eat it or not. Saves you having to hassle with it anyway!
