I agree with ntertayneme, that Wilton fondant tastes like horse manure. It smells like old vinegar, I don't know, it's is horrible. When I started taking the fondant class at Micheal's, one of the girls would always get a headache - she attributed it to the nasty smell. The teacher always told us to add the Wilton Butter or vanilla flavoring to make it better. . .
The vanilla would help a little, but you could still smell the underlying vinegar smell. As for the butter flavoring, NASTY, NASTY, NASTY as well, smells like rancid butter to me, none of us in the class liked it. Why is Wilton putting out sush poor products out there??? Nevermind, that would be another post in the forum
Ok, this is the Fondant I use. Everyone compliments how good it is. . .
I've tried it, it's good, no nasty tastes. . . I just usually don't eat it, I'll give my leftover fondant to my niece or my mom, they LOVE it. . .
I looked on the web to find the pic to include here. . . and my oh my, it's expensive out there!!!! The 15lb bucket I buy here at a cake supply store for $28.00 was on the net for $59. . . YIKES! Not to mention the arm & the leg they would charge you for shipping that 15lbs bucket.
