I personally use satinice fondant - its the best I have found so far, taste and "user friendly" wise :) I believe its not recommended to refrigerate a cake that has been iced with fondant as it causes the fondant to sweat and then you have problems with colours, moisture etc. Hope thats helpful!

No one can tell you what is best for you. Making it is cheaper, buying more convenient. It will sweat some if the icing underneath is cold but it will dry out.

nany389 - Just curious, after you have covered the entire cake with fondant you are putting it in the fridge?  

Why are you trying to make your fondant hard?

 

The answer to your OP which is best, is that they are different and both good.

 

Satin Ice has become my favorite Fondant. It is such good quality.

I don't put fondant in the fridge either.

I learned to make Marshmallow Fondant, and it's really easy to make and inexpensive. For decorations, and thick cut outs. kids love the taste.

Satin Ice commercial fondant works so well in covering a cake, I haven't even tried to cover a cake with MMF.

I refrigerate fondant all the time, but in high humidity it will sweat a lot if it's taken straight from the fridge to a warm room, is that what is happening? You can help prevent this by putting it in a cardboard box in the fridge, then letting it come to room temp, preferably in a cool room at first, in the same box.

 

The only time I have ever seen fondant 'melt', is when it isn't put on an appropriate frosting, something like whipped cream or a soft cream cheese frosting, those would break down MMF very quickly. What do you have under it?

AI also use SatinIce. I never refrigerate a cake. I truly dislike the look, taste, and handling of MMF.

I think she is trying to make the icing underneath hard....which it doesn't need to be after you put the fondant on.
