I have a short notice cake and I am out of Satin Ice. I love how the Wilton handles, but of course the taste is not great.
Has anyone tried adding flavor to it. Perhaps some lemon extract, or almond??

I would like to know this as well, I purchased 10lbs of wilton fondant before I discovered MMF. And I want to get rid of it but nobody likes the taste.

I do it all the time. Just knead in maybe 1-2 Tablespoons to 1/2 a pkg. Any flavoring, any combination. Usually I used butter emulsion because that's what I had.

I've used the wilton candy flavorings to make it taste better...still not a patch on satin ice though!

I'm new to decorating and am wanting to make a fondant cake for a St. Judes benefit. I was told you can add extract to the fondant. My question is how far in advance can you decorate with the fondant before it starts to ahrden?

Sure you can add flavorings to Wilton fondant.

Unfortunately is will still taste like crap.

Fondant starts to harden fairly quickly. Well, on the outside at least. That's sort of the point.

I've added almond and vanilla and butter extracts. Unfortunately a terd still tastes like a terd even when it is a vanilla terd. It's kind of like spraying scent after using the bathroom...ahhh....yes, I smell the roses....and the poop....rosey poop....mmmmmm....that's my favorite candle scent.....riiiiiiiight! icon_smile.gif Time crunch, I would still make my own (which I do all the time. It doesn't take that long). Good luck!
