I made a 2 layer cake yesterday and I tried the MM fondant and the Rolled buttercream with each of the layers. I have to say that I like the MM fondant way more than the rolled buttercream. The buttercream was very soft and greasy although it does taste good. MM fondant is by far my favorite but I had to compare the two.
I love working with MMF too ... it's so easy to handle. I'm doing another wedding cake next Saturday and plan to cover it in MMF. I'm glad to know the info about the rolled buttercream... I had thought about using it but I think I'll just stick to the MMF instead
OK....I'm just learning to use fondant, and am in Wilton Course III. Did my first fondant cake yesterday. Took it to a baby shower this am. One....I'm not wild about the flavor of the Wilton fondant....and two, it seemed to "fall off" the slice of cake when served. Is MMF tastier? Should I expect fondant to adhere to the cake like buttercream? Does rolled buttercream taste like reg. buttercream?
Fondant doesn't stick to the cake. You need to 'glue' it on. You can use apricot glaze for this but I normally use a thin layer of buttercream.
I've never tried fondant but I really liked the taste of MMF. It was really sweet and delicious
I used a think layer of buttercream under the fondant...and decorating gel at the base......
I'll try the MMF.......the fondant is so pretty...i just want it to taste as good as it looks.
Thanks for your input.....AND MS. BARITONE.....I play trumpet! Well, used to anyway...and my hubby plays trombone, and kids are all brass players. We used to "force" them to play brass ensemble pieces with their nerdy parents! LOL! Secretly, they liked it.
Made FIVE cakes in two days. I need a rest!
