I am going to be making a cake for a friend and would like to try to make fondant. What I would like to know is which is better the icing or the roll type? If anyone could help me that would be great. Thanks
Hi Rainy, I personally prefer the look of rolled fondant for large cakes. I have yet to make my own "REAL" rolled fondant because most of the recipes I found call for glucose which is pretty scarce around here. After using store bought premade fondant (from Michael's) I was very happy visually with my cakes but the taste was terrible. Everyone just at the cake and left the fondant on the plate. I later found a marshmallow fondant recipe that was easy, tasted good, and could be made with a microwave.
Thank you so much for the advice. I almost went and bought ready made fondant. I now know not to do that. I like my cakes to not only look good but taste good also. Without a doubt I am going to be using the recipe that you provided. Thank you so much.
I made a cake for my best friend's baby shower. It was fairly easy and tasted pretty good if you like things sweet. Everyone really loved the cake, there were only a few people that didn't eat the fondant because it was too sweet for them.
Here is a pic of my first-time fondant cake, not too terrible, I hope.
