Rexygirl, I had heard that Duff's was Fonderific or Fondex with his name on it. Can't remember the name exactly, just remember that it started with an "F". I want to say I was told that at the local cake supply store I buy from once in a while but can't remember exactly. I tried it, but wasn't that happy with it, but that was also before I was told I had to add something to it to help it harden. I made some hearts with it around Valentines day and they took almost a year to harden like other fondants. I haven't tried it since. I've made marshamallow fondant once and everyone loved the taste of it, but I keep saying I'm going to try making Michele Foster's recipe and I haven't done that yet. When I want black fondant, I use Satin Ice chocolate and add black to it. Doesn't take as much coloring to make it black and everyone loves the taste of that one.
Want to add "Happy New Year" to one and all and hope it will be a very productive and prosperous year for those of you who bake and decorate cakes as a business (I'm a hobbyist only). I love looking at your cakes and do a lot of lurking, but not much posting here. And thanks to Cat for always getting the thread up and running for us!
