Different types of fondant

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I will be doing my first wedding cake and my friend wants it covered with fondant, I have only ever made and used marshmellow fondant on the my past cakes. What is the best brand to use? In taste and quality. icon_smile.gif

Some people use Satin Ice and like it. I personally hate it.

How about you use Choco pan?

I use Satin Ice to cover all my cakes. I love working with it, and have always had compliments on the taste. It comes in great pre-coloured hues as well as white and ivory.

Thanks, I think that I am going to try Choco Pan for the cake. I am going to do a trial cake before the wedding to make sure I like how the Choco Pan looks.

There is also Fondx. It tastes good and it is good to work with. It just a little bit more pricier than satin ice.

You could always make your own (so much cheaper) that's not made from marshmallows. I made my first batch yesterday and it was so easy and so, so cheap. Just a thought! icon_smile.gif

I make a semi-homemade white chocolate fondant that is wonderful! NEVER any elephant skin cracks... performs like a dream. You can roll it super thin and it tastes great!

u can also always try Michelle Foster's fondant recipe. u can find it under "recipes" on this website.

i think it's a pretty yummy homemade alternative to MMF.

I just used jennifermi's chocolate fondant Sunday and it was a dream to work with icon_smile.gif I liked it much better then satin ice and it was easier to work with then chocopan. Can't wait to see how my DH boss like the taste.

Is her recipe in the recipe section?
I don't care for the taste of Satin Ice (tastes a little too chemically). I've tried every MMF recipe with inconsistent results. I've also made Michele's several times. I love the taste, but it seems a little too soft.
IMO, Fondx tastes pretty good & is easy to work with, but I want a fool-proof recipe when I don't have time to order fondant.
