Ok I have used the chocolate fondant (cake bible recipe) before and while the flavor was ok (unless you dont like dark chocolate....sooooooo much cocoa in that recipe) but the texture was hard to work with. I used it on my treasure chest cake because the mom loves dark chocolate and she didnt want me to use artificial coloring. It was horrible to work with though. Not soft and lovely like my regular mmf (or even colette peters reg fondant recipe) and when I put it on I had little cracks on the edges (thankfully covered by the wood grain pattern and not noticable to anyone but me)

I am looking for a good choc fondant recipe (mmf is what I usually use) to make a cake for this weekend and because it is going to be tall I cannot deal with the same texture as before, it simply wont work.

Anyone have a great choc fondant recipe that covers and smooths beautifully and is malleable?

i,d suggest to purchase satin ice chocolate... or pettinice ice chocolate or chocopan chocolate..i think the cocoa powder in homemade makes it too dry... or maybe michelle fosters recipe on this site.. haven,t made it ..but lots of c/cers do..hth
