I have been looking a little bit in the stores for fondant and buttercream frosting. I want to there if there is such a thing as "all natural" frosting or fondant? I can't seem to find any? It seems like they all have trans fat.
nope and gelatin for the most part as far as my little newblet head knows.....maybe make your own mmf using organic marshmallows and such? but as far as storebought goes i don't think so
When I was researching organic, I also found that natural green, for example, was $142.00 as compared to artificial green which was about $1.19 for the same amount. And natural colors don't work very well to boot, and are hard to find.
Natural is a funny concept, though. Hemlock and arsenic are completely natural, after all.
I sometimes use Earth Balance brand shortening sticks for baking and to make icings and Whole Foods also carries Spectrum brand shortening which is natural. Neither works as well as hi-ratio, though. Cake and pastries are just not necessarily going to be healthy, but as an occasional treat, I think we will probably survive.
Having said all that, if you do find sources, I hope you will post them, because I'd love to use more natural and organic products. Cake icings are about the only place I haven't succeeded in that endeavor.
