Fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Duff's fondant is actually not bad tasting. The first time I ever worked with fondant, I used that brand. Then I started making my own MMF and love it! I sometimes get inconsistent results as well, so I might try MFF.
I used Fondx once because I needed black and can never get my fondant proper black. I hated it...had a hard time working with it (though I'm still a novice, so I'm sure professionals have no issues with it) and thought the taste was disgusting!

We used to make our own, either MMF or MFF, and while we like them, we switched to Fondarific when we opened our storefront because we just don't have time to make all the fondant we need. We love Fondarific! It's tastes amazing, easy to work and color, and it's really not bad price wise. You can get wholesale prices on it if you have an FEIN.

I like Carma fondant the best. It is worth every extra dollar I pay for it.

I like Satin Ice too. It's so easy to work with!

ladij153, Thanks you very very much! Didn't know it's possible to calculate even "cup" icon_redface.gif The only thing left: a pack gelatin - how many grams is in it (as it is very impotent not to use too much or to little of it, isn't it..)?

how many ounces are in a pkg of gelatin? convert ounces to grams....or vice versa? May need to take the ounces in the whole box of gelatin and divide by number of packets in the box if you're using the unflavored kind like KNOX brand.

I live in Norway and use our local brand. Our pack has 12 grams. I was wondering about the weight of gelatin pack in Michelle Foster's Fondant recipe and what kind og brand she is using. But now I can search on KNOX brand that you have mensioned icon_redface.gif Than you,ladij153 for you help!

And I get very consistent results batch-to-batch. I whip up two batches at a time, sometimes three. (In sequence, not doubling or triping the batch.... that would kill my mixer!)



Im wondering what MFF stands for? Ive never heard of it?



Marshmallow fondant. icon_smile.gif



MMF=marshmallow fondant

MFF=Michelle Fosters Fondant

Fosters fondant is soooo much better than marshmallow fondant. Less messy to make, less sweet and feels like the Fondx brand that I used to make. Far superior in my opinion.



Thanks! Have to look into it!

I started out making my own fondant...MMF then MFF, but honestly agree that I just don't have enough time to make my own fondant (not to mention the fact that I too had inconsistent results with both fondants).
I also use Fondariffic. I think it tastes good, and works well. They now offer Almond flavor which is fantastic.
