I have always used buttercream on cakes because a lot of people don't seem to like the taste of fondant. Any suggestions on making good tasting fondant?
Your flavors can be any combination, I make the MMF and put tsp of vanilla, tsp of butter flavor and 2 tsp of creme bouquet. I love the flavor.
i use satin ice and that tastes really good. i've heard lots of good things about Michele Foster's fondant, i just prefer the convenience of not making it myself.
MMF tastes GREAT! Everyone tells me it's like candy. One lady I do cakes for always asks for the 'good icing' LOL.
I use vanilla flavorings in my MMF.
MMF taste great. You can also add Kool-aid to color it. That makes it taste even better. I tried cherry this weekend and it was a hit!
Make Michele Foster's recipe. I really don't care for MMF.. the texture or the taste.. it's so sickly sweet. Michele Foster's recipe is just as good (if not better) than any commercial fondant I have tried and it's easy to make. The recipe is here in the recipe section. I have tried mank MMF recipes, Toba Garrett's fondant recipe.. some other obscure recipe I found on-line.. tried Satin Ice, Fondex, and Choco-Pan.. Michele's fondant is my favorite hands down.
I really like Rose Levy Beranbaum's fondant, which tasted like oreo filling from 30 years ago. It melts in your mouth. One word or caution though... the new formulation of crisco has caused some trouble with this recipe (from the now 20 year old cake bible), but her blog states Spectrum Organic shortening is an excellent substitute.
