Couldn't hurt to try and test the waters. If you do I'd like to know how it worked out for you.

Wilton fondant is the worst tasting fondant there is and I personally wouldn't waste good chocolate on it.

Wilton fondant is a very workable fondant, but not the most tasty of the pre-made options.

If you add Jennifer's chocolate clay to Wilton, it will act and taste very similar to her original recipe (I believe she uses Pettinice?). It makes a wonderful product that is easy to use, especially for a beginner.

I would recommend making your own MMF or buying Satin Ice. Both taste SOOOO much better than the Wilton type. The only time I buy the Wilton is for figures that I need black or red fondant. If you want a good MMF recipe you can find one on here. The one I use has an ingrediant list of marshmallows, water, powdered sugar and crisco (I add a teaspoon of clear flavoring to mine as well).
