I know it's personal preference, but I'm looking for a good recomendation of a premade fondant to purchase. I've used Wilton and Satin Ice and I've made my own. I prefer Wilton over Satin Ice as the one time I used SI it was so soft that it stretched and tore, etc. I had all kinds of problems with it.
Is that normal?
Wilton is ok, but too stiff no matter what I do. Is there a good one in the middle?

You could always mix the two?? I prefer fondarific but its a little pricey. I tend to mix 50/50 fondarific and satin ice. I think satin ice drys too fast and gives elephant skin, but when you mix the two its great! My up! cake had a 50/50 mixture fondarific/satin ice and my black and white cake was all fondarific.
Happy cakeing!

I use Fondex... but if you think SI is soft then you might have troubles with it. I like it because it doesn't dry out as fast as SI and you don't get that elephant skin as quickly. I think Fondariffic is too strongly flavored. I like fondant to just be sweet and meld in with the rest of the flavors.

I make my own, but I tried a batch of Duff's once, and it was pretty good and easy to work with. Not sure who makes it, tho.
