I was wondering what Fondant people use now that we can't get the original Wilton brand anymore. I really do not like the new one. It was OK if I mixed it with the other version but I do not like it on it's own. It is too soft for me. I like the stiffer version. Is there another brand similar to it that I can order and where is the best place to order from. I have some nice cakes coming up soon that I have to figure out what to use. Even if there is a good recipe to try. I would be so thankful for any advice and suggestions. I am so upset that it is completely discontinued now.
chadry, I actually prefer the new Wilton fondant to the old. The flavor is 1000% times better. Are you doing anything to your fondant besides kneading? I haven't had a problem with it being too soft (my house is an average of 70 degrees inside, about 30% humidity). I suspect warmer inside temps might change that.
I used to make Rhonda's MMF and that was really soft.
I just started using fondx and I absolutely love it! I also use satin ice if I put a lot of decor on the cake but I use fondx when its a plain tier because it covers beautifully.
Thank you for the replies. It does taste better but it is sticky and soft. I do not do anything different than before. I have seen the fondex and I know many people use Satin Ice so I am trying to see what others prefer since I am going to have to order something
Love love love Massa Grischuna neutral from Albert Uster imports, New York. Not available in stores, but is shipped in 2 days, and very nice professional company. It handles beautifully, more like the old Wilton, but tastes great. Highly recommend it. Once I tried it, never went back.
