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 love Fondarific
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.
