Hi everyone,   I have been doing cakes now for 4 years and LOVE it! I have been using Wilton fondant (I know "gasp" - the horror!!! LOL!!!) But honestly I loved working with it! It was always a little harder in texture to work with but I found that to be helpful - I had very few issues with cracking or cakes being to soft... honestly I thought working with fondant was so easy!   NOW wilton has changed their fondant - great I suppose for some people.
