fondant that tastes good

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Help, I am new to cake decorating, and all of the online fondant recipes I have tried taste terrible, the store bought ones taste almost vinegary, but they roll and decorate nicely. The online recipes taste better, but always stick and never roll clean no matter how much conf. sugar or cornstarch I use....I am looking for a relatively easy fondant recipe that mixes well, colors well, and tastes good, almost as if it tastes like icing.... anyone out there who can help me will be appreciated....

MMF (marshmallow fondant) is the one that works for me!!!!
But the easiness of working with it comes with experience....
I love it and I do all my decoration with it. I cover my cakes, do the accents and modeling with it.

I had the same problem.I tried different versions until I finally found one I like.In the recipe section I found Rhonda's ultimate marshmallow fondant.It is super easy to make and use and can be stored in the fridge with no problems.

Michele Foster's fondant recipe is what I use. It can be tweaked for different flavours, is easy enough to make, and rolls out nicely!

Same here....MMF works very well for me, also. I heard that Satin Ice is good but I haven't tried it yet.

agree 100 %, MFF is the way to go, MMF is too quirky to work with

without a doubt, Michelle Foster's fondant. I have made it all flavors. I have even made it and people say I hate fondant and then eat it up!

Try Jennifer Dontz's semi-homemade recipe.

I've used Rhonda's Ultimate MMF and Michelle Fosters and I have to say I like Michelle Foster's better. The MMF tends to be more sticky and softer so it tears easier. Foster's recipe is very smooth and easy to roll and flavor. The white chocolate version is delicious. It takes a little longer to make but is still pretty simple to make.
