Homemade vs Purchased Fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 18
IMO, Fondx is the best tasting icing. I don't use marshmallow fondant anymore because #1 I don't like the taste and #2 it's not vegetarian.

I love the taste of marshmallow fondant, but it is a sticky mess to make, so I avoid it!  It takes a long time to clean it up.

I tried Fondx and thought it smelled and tasted like chemicals.

I make my own when I'm practicing and buy Satin Ice when I'm making the real thing.  The commercial fondant has added ingredients that make the fondant more pliable and less prone to tearing.
