I usually make my own fondant when covering cakes. But I'm in a time crunch with a big order that also includes black fondant.

What is you favorite go to store bought fondant that covers well and also tastes good?

I know many don’t like it but I use Wilton   You can add any flavoring by kneading it in   I usually dab about 4-5 times on a lump about the size of a baseball   Do as many pieces you want then knead them together so the taste is worked the same through

I agree with kakeladi. Many say satin ice tastes better but it costs more and if you add flavoring to Wilton i don’t think it tastes bad.

for fondant decorations that will be plucked off the cake or saved for eternity :) I use Wilton and I don’t add any flavoring.

fwiw — wilton doesn’t now initially they used something in their fondant that tasted and smelled purely horrid — it was like did no one notice this, who would intentionally put out something so nasty — so once they got that resolved and somehow it took years — they have a nice product — but the stinky reputation is hard to overcome but they do have a nice fondant now — I used satin ice mostly though

I have the same question after opening up a 5# package of Wilton black fondant and it was unusable!  No stretch at all, it only tore.  I recently had the same problem with Wilton's white, so I ended up making it.   I'm kinda done with Wilton after two fails in a row.  Looking forward to your replies on the black fondant, too! :)

For white, in the summer, I use Carma Massa Ticcino Tropica.  I also love Fondarific and Renshaw and use those for whites in cooler weather and for colors, depending on which one has the best price as I need it.  The only time any of them let me down was once a few years ago with Fondarific and it was AWEFUL!  Not at all the quality I was used to and I had a ton of it preparing for some weddings.  I contacted them about the batch and they confirmed there was a processing problem and replaced it all at no charge, including the several pounds I had already used on a wedding cake to feed 150.  I've tried a bunch of brands.  These have always worked best for me.
