Topic: Duff fondant

Michael's (where I take the Wilton decorating classes) just started carrying a new line of cake products. Has anyone tried the Duff fondant? I know Wilton's fondant isn't good, but it seems most people on forums (like here & Cake Central) seem to really like the taste of Satin Ice & I do too. I was curious how the Duff brand compares.

OMG!!! That stuff is WONDERFUL!!! it's buttercream flavor and smells delightful...i would buy it again.i used my 40% off coupon and got it for 11.99 normally its 19.99 for 2 lbs.

is it pretty easy to work with? I might have to go and get some. I have a coupon and nothing to use it on.

of course it's a tad bit hard at first..it's wrap in a plastic bag but nuck it in the microwave for a couple of seconds or knead it for a bit and it will be fine.

I's really good!!! I absolutely love the black. It tastes (to me) like butterscotch...well, it has a butterscotchy taste. It's pricey where I live...$29.99 for a 2lb tub. Gota love those coupons!!

Good to know but for those prices, I'll stick with mmf. Call me Cheap!
Kesha314 05/14/2010 1:45 PM
sweetgrandma i couldn't agree more...i will only buy the black because it's hard for me to color anything black...but what i will start doing is adding cheesecake flavoring to my fondant or use the same flavoring in my fondant as my buttercream.

Just had my first taste of Duff's white fondant...whoa...surprisingly good! Two-pound tub for $20.

when you think about it by the time u order satin ice fondant for $12.99 then add on shipping u spend about $20.
dottiepark 06/14/2010 8:46 AM

I needed black so I thought I'd try it. After I stuck it in the micro I thought it was very easy to work with. Almost a soft and smooth texture. The smell was really good, but I love the flavor of mine better, which is bunnywomans. I would buy black and red again, but only with a coupon.
Kesha314 06/14/2010 1:57 PM
Linsey..im with you on that one. that's a 50% off item

Duff's fondant is the Fondarific brand. You can sample 5 flavors for only $6 if you are interested!

I went to the Fondarific site and ordered. It shipped super fast through Paypal and came in a 2 lb tub with 5 plastic packages of neatly labeled fondant strips. I tasted wedding white buttercream, vanilla, chocolate, coffee (although I requested chocolate mocha) and buttercream.

Tasty as far as fondant goes! It was in my metal mailbox and it's so hot outside. The fondant was super soft and a touch greasy at that temp.

Call me cheap too, sweetgrandma! That is too rich for me!

I bought some of the black, don't really care for the taste - it is better than Wilton, but just barely! I probably will buy some again, as I am making a penguin cake, and I don't want to try to color MMF black, but otherwise, I don't think I will use it if I can help it. Even with a 50% off coupon, it still seems over-priced to me.

Duff's fondant is FANTASTIC! I had never used fondant before, but it along with my own homemade buttercream made for a cake that everyone raved over. The two frostings complimented each other beautifully, and it was very easy to use. I am stocking up on the Duff's. Just in case it isn't carried when I need it! LOL
