do kids like to eat fondant? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
My kids are 1 1/2 and 3 years old... they don't give a hoot about cake. They like icing. But they like fondant even better! I think it's because they can "play with it"...

DS2 didn't eat any cake or icing from his first birthday cake - he played with the icing and smashed the cke up, but he ATE a cut-out fondant truck that I gave him. So yeah, if it's good fondant, they'll like it.

My daughter loves it. Even the cheap stuff. She"helps" me decorate cakes but eats it while she goes and gets upset when she doesn't have anymore to play with.

My grandchildren, ages 2 and 4 love fondant. They will pick all the fondant decorations off the cake or cupcakes if you don't stop them. I usually use a large star tip to make a frosting swirl on the cupcake and then add a fondant accent. They've been a big hit with all the children, so far. thumbs_up.gif

My boys love fondant (I use MMF). I made chocolate MMF once and it tasted like tootsie rolls, I had to punish them from the kitchen to stop eating it.

My kids are 5 and 7. When they find out that I have made mmf, they drive me nuts until I give them a piece! They love it, especially because they can play with it!

My kids (well the 3 who are old enough to eat it anyway) LOVE fondant - ages 2, 7 & 10. I almost always use Michelle Foster's fondant and that is what they prefer but they will not turn down MMF or Satin Ice either. My oldest will even eat Wilton, but says he doesn't like it THAT much but doesn't hate it enough to peel off either.

I made cupcakes for my son's Kindergarten class on Friday and I topped them with a swirl of buttercream and a MMF cutout.
Most of the kids ate the cutout first!! I saw 2 going in the trash out of a class of 21.
