I bought this product because I didn't want to spend time making black fondant. I wish I had just gone and colored my own though. This product was so hard when I took it out of the container I am pretty sure it could have been used as a weapon. I spent a lot of time working with it to get it to a state that could be rolled out. thumbsdown.gif

I use Michele Foster's recipe and use a butter emulsion flavoring. It's wonderful. Smell's like butter & tastes great too.

I tried Duff's fondant, It is hard out of the tub but a couple of secs in the microwave fixing that, tastes great, haven't covered a cake with it yet but did try to make a bow, even with some tylose it was soft and took a looong time to harden up. Tried it in my cricut thats a no go as well. My personal virdict is... tastes great, good colour selection and will probably be good to cover cakes but not so good for accents.

I bought a 2lb bucket from Michaels in the hot pink and used it on a cake for a customer and I absolutely loved it. It taste great and rolls very well, no air bubbles and it was really smooth. It was hard when I took it out of the pack but quickly softens up. I was doing a cupcake tower with a small cake on top using my cricut cake for the first time and it turned out beautiful.

It's not at my Michael's in southern CA. Haven't checked Joanne's & we don't have Hobby Lobby here.

but then again sucks for cutouts

for the person who thought it was hard when you took it out of the package...did you read the instructions? i'm not asking rudely, it's just that it says that you have to put it in the microwave to soften up. i bet you had to knead it forever!

i personally loved the way it worked and covered the cake...did it on the first try icon_smile.gif and was sooooo smooth! plus, it does smell and taste much better than others i've tried.

and like the others said, with the coupon, it's about $10 for 2 lbs of it! and i could probably cover a 3 tier 6, 8, 10 round with it...i don't roll my fondant very thick!

here's a pic of a skateboard cake i covered with duff's black so you can see how smooth and true black it was!

and to explain the cake...it was for a 16 year old boy who was an exchange student from germany, hence the german flag! he also was a huge skateboarder!

I just noticed his line at Michaels yesterday. My store had several colors of fondant as well as Icing Glaze? There was a kit with tips, couplers, bags, etc., some cutter sets, texture mats (I did purchase one), edible images, spatula's and a line of pans. I was impressed with the selection. I think that I'm going to use my coupon to try a tub of the fondant. I don't generally cover my cakes with fondant, but I do use it for accents. Curious to see how well it works.

I just checked out Michaels website and when you type in "Duff" to search, 15 items came up. He also has cake mixes and spray color.

His fondant is actually Fondarific. You can buy it all direct from Fondarific. They even have wholesale pricing.

To get it to work in your cricut. I put a little Tylose powder in it, smooth it out and put it on the mat, then stick the mat in the freezer for awhile. As long as I am not cutting really small cuts it works ok, but gum paste still works better.

My Michael's has it for $19.99 for 2#. I used a 50% coupon in it so totally a good price. It smells great. Harder to work with than Satin Ice. The verdict is still out. I really want it to work cause around here I can't find Satin Ice other than online & I hate that. I will let you know what I am done. ::crossing fingers::
