Hi fellow cake decorarators, I am in Europe and I usually buy my fondant online. I have tried several brands, the last one I have been using is ok but still cracks a bit on the eges of cakes (even round edges).

 

I am looking for a fool proof fondant that streches without tearing, can be rolled thinly, not too sticky and that is pliable enough to be used on cakes with sharp edges, i.e a miracle fondant!!  

 

Suggestions of brands appreciated... that are also sold in Europe preferably.

 

Thanks everyone!

Massa Grischuna Neutral or Carma's Massa Ticino Tropic.  They are both great.  Can be rolled thinly, are not sticky and stretchy like many others, and they really taste good too. I don't use anything else, (except for cake boards!)   As far as I know only available online.  Grischuna from Albert Uster Imports only, Tropic from FondantSource but other sites too I believe.  HTH, good luck.

I make my own MMF which I love & get beautiful edges with, I think however, that it may be more experience in getting sharp edges rather than make of fondant?

What she said!! I also make my own MMF and can get sharp edges. When I first started, I couldn't get sharp edges no matter what brand/type of fondant I used. It's all about experience and practice. I'm sure there are a ton of videos out there on how to get sharp edges, but I personally thought Jessica Harris's clean and Simple cake design on Craftsy.com was the most helpful for me. HTH! :)
