What is the best fondant brand? - Page 2

post #16 of 54
I was going to suggest Jennifer Dontz's but if you want premade, here is what I will suggest:

1. Chocopan
2. Fondx
3. Satin Ice

Trust me if you try fondarific, you will change your mind, they have lemon, tutti,frutti, chocolate,orange, strawberry and a couple of other flavors, try their site they sell some samples for 6.99 including shipping you cannot go wrong. you get 5 good size pieces.


http://shop.fondarific.com/category.sc;jsessionid=E2D4C56BD45603B697EBA86DB8A0F988.qscstrfrnt01?categoryId=5

Here is the link I hope it works.




Ditto! Fondarific is the best IMHO. And the ladies there are soooo sweet to work with.

The Fondarific is really GOOD. The blueberry is delicious, the melon is yummy and the tutti fruity is really good. The chocolate taste like a tootsie roll. Ive also had the vanilla, buttercream, lemon, orange and strawberry. All very good. I mostly use the buttercrem and chocolate simply because that's what is requested, but my favorite is the blueberry

does the fondarific roll out well? I tried a sample, but didn't roll it out.

I like the idea of having the Fondarific pre-flavored and colored, but it is so expensive. It's nearly $35 for 5 pounds.

Is it really worth the extra $$ ?

I use Satin Ice and love it. Sometimes if I need a lot of plain white I will make some MMF, its much cheaper but as far as colors go Satin Ice's color are so vibrant and beautiful. I would love to try fondarific but I do not like the fact that the color determines the flavor. Very weird to me. I may want a blue fondant but not a blueberry flavor...know what I mean? Anyway I say Use Wilton for non eating purposes like boards and things, it really rolls beautifully but Satin Ice to eat.

The fondarific has always rolled out very smooth for me. The chocolate takes a little more kneeding, but I zap in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds and that does the trick. Very pliable and smooth. It is $33 for the 5lbs, but it does taste very good and I think its worth it. I dont want my buisness to be know for delicious cakes with crap frosting. I have never tried making MMF, but I have heard that it taste good, but has a problem cracking.

No worries, just buy the white and color it with blue icing color (or whatever other color you're trying to achieve). It accepts color beautifully! thumbs_up.gif

It is also very good if U mix the vanilla, with the buttercream flavor. Very Yummy!!. Fonadarific has also come out with a Wedding White, but I have not tried that yet.

But I'm sick of making fondant....I'm with Ally and just using MMF for decorations and buying fondant to cover cakes.



I don't care much for Pettinice...I like FondX but I started buying Satin Ice because it came in bigger containers...and a little cheaper...and I do really like it. I also occasionally get the colored ones if I know I have a big cake of a dark color coming up...and the chocolate is nice too (although I don't care for the chocolate flavor).

I'm lucky to have a bakery supply nearby to order from.

Where can this be purchased I would like to try it?
post #27 of 54
I purchase mine directly from Nicholas, but it may also be ordered from Albert Uster Imports. Their website is www.auiswiss.com. Nicholas Lodge's is www.nicholaslodge.com. The people there are GREAT!! Another nice thing about Massa, is that the taste is very mild, so it may be flavored with any flavor you would like.

Good Luck. icon_smile.gif

I was told that Albert Uster is the Rolls Royce of Fonadant. Is that the same as Massa?

Yes it is. But I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for and you really are able to roll it fairly thin so it does go futher than any others I have tried and it stays soft! Your cake will not get hard the way it can w/other brands.
