Happy New Year Everyone


I am doing my second wedding cake in April.    My first cake I used Duff's white buttercream fondant which was great but it is not really white, more like an off white.

This cake in April she wants it white and also taste good.    Does anyone have any suggestions on what fondant to use that is also easy to work with?

Would love some help

I just used fondx virgin white (?) for a pure white cake.  it worked out fine....If price was not an issue I'd use fondarific pure white.

Try Wilton (easy to work with) and knead in  some Lorann's flavoring...not the emulsions, the kind for candy.

I would recommend Carma Massa Ticino Tropic.  It  tastes great, and is so  nice to work with.  It needs to be ordered on line, but there is plenty of time to try it out beforehand.  It is very white, and tastes so much better than Wilton.  Duff's tastes good, but is Ivory as you noted, and I find it very soft and hard to work with.
