Does anyone really like the taste of fondant?

I enjoy using it, it makes a really pretty finished product, and it's easy, but it tastes like crap!!

Yes, I've used several different recipe's including MMF. Yuk!![/i]

Have you tried Michele Foster's fondant? It's delish. I use the white chocolate variation (add 6 oz good white chocolate and substitute the liquid with white choc/macadamia nut coffee creamer) and everyone loves it, my dd peels it off the cake and eats it (a bit too much for me).

have you tried flavoring with oils. we add 1/4 tsp of orange oil and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon oil and have had lots of compliments. The oils are available in the candy making section of your supply store.

I love the taste of MMF. It tastes like circuis peanuts! But, I have not ever used it to cover a cake, just to make things that go on the cake.

Yes of course, many people like the taste of fondant.

I like Satin Ice fondant, both vanilla and dark chocolate.

Today in a pinch I had to buy some Pettinice chocolate fondant, and that was REALLY yummy.

I never did like MMF because I don't like marshmallows! icon_smile.gif

Toba Garett's fondant is yummy too.

I like the taste of Michelle Fosters.

I decided to buy some Satin Ice for the first time and absolutely love the vanilla but especially the Dark Chocolate...I think it taste like fudge. This is well worth the money.

You definitely have to add flavoring to the MMF otherwise it just taste like sugar.

I think that 90% of people that don't like fondant don't like the texture of it rather than the taste. My family just doesn't like the chewiness of it.
