I ordered some Pettinice fondant to make Jennifer Dontz' chocolate fondant recipe, when I opened the bag, it gave off a very strong chemical smell. I tasted a small amount and it tastes like chemicals. I went ahead and made the fondant recipe, but it didn't help the flavor at all. I still can't get the taste out of my mouth.
Is this normal for pettinice fondant or did I get a bad batch?
I usually make my own mmf, so maybe that's throwing my taste off?
