Is his stuff not for cut outs or what? I am so angry and embarrassed in the end result. He totally screwed me over and I will not buy anything of his again.

I will admit I cannot remember if I added gum tex or not. But in any case, how many amateurs even know to do that? And that's his target audience, right?

It's the rainbow graduation cake in my photos if you want to see it.



yes I know I don't like his fondant at all, I purchase the black one to make a cake for a graduation and the fondant never got hard at all. and the white is not white is like an off white and is super soft i just don't like it.



Your way of putting your complain sounds more civilized and logical. At least you are not making Duff look like a criminal intentionally targeting helpless victims.

Duff's fondant is a chocolate based fondant- any chocolate based fondant will not dry out. I live in Colorado too, BTW. I mix Duff's or another chocolate based fondant with a regular fondant for covering cakes and most things, because it doesn't dry out and tastes better IMHO. But if you need something to dry out- it won't work.

Okay, so you learned what that particular brand of fondant is/isn't good for. Just so you know, ALL brands of fondant vary to some extent. Next time you try a new brand, experiment with it first to see what it's like before launching into a full-blown cake project. No need to take differences in products as a personal betrayal. It happened two months ago, time to move on!

icon_rolleyes.gif RME! Some of y'all have spent to much time breathing in the powdered sugar. LOL! I don't think she meant that Duff himself purposely mislead her. No more than she meant he just crawled outta her bed. It's an expression guys. For you who have had your head in the buttercream too long, someone 'screwing' you can simply mean they let you down. LOL!

OP, I hope you don't let the downers keep you off the forums. You just have to over look them.

I think I will be blocking this post now. If you want drama, go watch it on TV. After all, cake should be sweet! icon_lol.gif

So on this subject I just have to say I am sooo bummed! I really really don't like Wilton's fondant taste but I actually just really found out that I LOVE LOVE LOVE to work with it. There is a bakery in a town several hours away and my mom had a cake from there. She said the fondant on the cake was amazingly delicous. What in the world are they using???? I think I might call because as a big bakery I am assuming they don't make it from scratch I would think they buy it. Any thoughts?

I love Fondarific (aka Duff's) to cover cakes. Everyone loves the way it tastes, it's a breeze to work with - doesn't crack on the edges or get elephant skin. Whenever I need to make figures or pieces that I need to dry, I use Satin Ice. I agree with a previous poster that it's best to play around with different fondants and see what works best for you. You may find that you prefer different fondants for different tasks - and that's okay! Thankfully, kept well sealed, they have a relatively long shelf life!

The best tasting fondant I've bought and used is FondX. It tastes great, almost has a creamy texture in your mouth and it's amazing to work with.

I bought one tub of Duff's black fondant when my local cake shop was out of black Satin Ice. Duff's was the weirdest/worst fondant I've ever seen or used. It was hard, dry, stiff, and was shoved into the tub in two weird lumps plus some smaller pieces. I had to microwave it for any useability at all, almost like MMF...

I almost think that I must have gotten a bad batch, because it's hard to imagine THAT fondant being marketed to the casual hobbyist.
