homemade fondant recipe tastes and has texture of Satin Ice? - Page 2

post #16 of 18

Okay, I have tried Wilton fondant, terrible tasting, but easy to work with, mmf, tastes okay, a little more difficult to work with, buttercream fondant recipe (better to work with than mmf, better texture, taste okay.  But today I received my first order of Satin Ice, and oh my gosh!  It tastes amazing!  The texture is awesome, I am going to work with it now, so I will let you know how it is to work with.  But I have to say none of the other fondants compare to Satin Ice in taste!

I am new to cake decorating, and I'm looking for a recipe for fondant that tastes good and is easy to work with. I will definately try Toba Garret's and Michele Foster's. Thanks for sharing.

I finished the cake I made using the Satin Ice, I actually found it a little more difficult to work with than the mmf, I had a little problem with it cracking when making the ribbon for the cake, so I had to work some Crisco in to keep it from cracking.  So this is my opinion about fondants (at least the four that I have tried), Wilton is hands down easiest to work with,  (but doesn't taste good) Satin Ice is the best tasting, (although a little harder to work with).  Home-made buttercream fondant, (easy to work with, but lacks in taste), finally, mmf, tastes pretty good (as far as fondant goes) and if you add a secret ingredient to it, the mmf is easy to work with.  What is the secret ingredient?  Half a box of Wilton fondant!  When you make a full recipe of mmf, and add half a box of Wilton fondant to it, you lose the bad taste of Wilton fondant and make the mmf easy to work with.  It is a win, win!  I have to tell you, this was not my idea, I stumbled across it on you-tube, I can't remember the gal who gave the tip, but it is a great one!  I think you could probably do the same with Satin Ice, combining the two would give you the best of both worlds, great taste and a great workable fondant!  That is what I am going to go with, it just makes life a lot easier for me to buy premade fondant, by the time I buy all the ingredients to make mmf, it isn't that much more expensive to buy the pre-made, and it is a huge time saver.  This is a picture of the cake I made, this was a lot of fondant work!
