I live in San Diego, and tried the Wilton's Decorator Preferred Fondants. It was okay but a bit sticky and I found that you need to use it thicker because it shows any imperfections underneath.  I'd like to know what ready made fondants does everyone else use and why?

I know you are looking for ready made fondant...

 

Would you consider making your own MMF?  It's better than the prepared ones and more cost effective -- not difficult at all to make.  

 

Liz Mareck has a great fondant recipe that combines the best of both worlds...homemade MMF with Wilton Fondant.

I make my own.  Haven't found anything else that I like.  Many are way too soft.  When I make my own, I can control the color, texture, opacity and flavor.  And I like that.  You put so much into your cakes and flavors, why not take charge of the exterior.

I've been debating doing that. Buying it has just been more convenient.

I love Albert Uster FondArt.  Very user friendly, tastes good, and I never get bubbles when I roll it out.  You can find it at nicholaslodge.com  $7.25/2.2lbs plus shipping.

I've made Liz Marek's MMF with the new Wilton fondant. Now it's stickier than it used to be. The new Wilton has lost the elasticity that made it so useful. Wish I could buy the old stuff. Sigh.
