Hi everyone

I have been making cakes for the last two years. I cover my cakes with Duff Golman fondant but its always too sticky and doesnt give the cleanest look because of stickiness. Taste wise its good. There are soo many experienced bakers in these blogs and forum. I need advice from you all regarding which fondant is better to cover cakes neatlt and have good taste.

There are so many different brands out there, but I think Satin Ice is really good. It tastes pretty good too.

AI like both Satin Ice and FondX, based on the weather somewhat.

ADuff is very very dufferebt from some if the marshmallow type fondants. It has a high chocolate ratio similar to fondarific. They work very differently.

I really like fondarific. I use corn starch for rolling so it isn't too soft.

If that wont work for you, you probably will prefer the different kind. Try Satin Ice first. It is very popular & inexpensive.

I had the same problem with Duff's.  I used his red on a sock monkey cake.  The weather was VERY HOT AND HUMID that day.  I had the cake refrigerated and put it into an air conditioned car and then into an air conditioned building.  The red was MELTING onto the buttercream.  It does taste good, but I know I can't count on for any cake that I want to refrigerate, which is pretty much all of them!
