Hate Fonadarific!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I had decided to switch from Satin Ice to Fondarific. Not sure why so many people like fonarific, I am having nothing but trouble with it. I am not sure what I will buy, I don't have much of a choice. It is way too soft to do anything with, even after leaving it rest for a while it stretches unbelievably.  just really frustrated. any suggestions would be wonderful. thanks so much....

Mix the 2 together. You will have the familiarity of the Satin Ice, and the Fondarific will make it taste less like Play-do.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

that sounds like a good idea, would it be a 50/50 mix, or whatever feels good?

Do a search for "Fondarific Sucks"…hahaha! It was my post about it. There are a lot of great suggestions on how to use it. I think the taste is great, but I just can't work with it well. Bravo to those who are able to work with it and make their cakes gorgeous!!!

Like ;-D

 

Start with a 50/50 mix and as you get used to it, slowly reduce the nasty stuff until you're using just Fondrific.

I had my first experience with it this week and won't be going back to use it again. Had a small sample from the cake shop & thought I'd use it for some lettering for my nephews cake - but it stretched and didn't firm up so had to scratch them all. The above suggestions of mixing with Satin Ice sounds good though.

I don't think it's recommended for decorations…just for covering cakes. I had no clue and tried to make strips of it to put on a cake and they just kept stretching out of shape. It was a very sad looking cake. I didn't even take pictures. haha!!1

 

I think if you want to use it for decorations, you may need to do a 60/40 mixture of gumpaste to fondant or even higher ratio of gumpaste to fondant. That way you can use it up and it won't go to waste. 

 

I applaud the bakers who can use it well. I just don't have patience!
