The Great Fondant Comparison I did about a year ago is one of the posts that I am the most proud of. It took a lot of work, and I really enjoyed it.
Below is the shortened version:
homemade scratch fondant, and a homemade marshmallow fondant.
(All of the score sheets from my testers and complete details can be found on the complete Great Fondant Comparison post.)
Ease of Preparation: Wilton
Cost/ Availability: Homemade marshmallow fondant
Ease of Kneading/ Rolling: Satin Ice
Ease/ Success on Cake: Tie between Homemade scratch and Satin Ice
Appearance: Satin Ice
Taste: Homemade scratch fondant
Texture: Homemade scratch fondant
Overall: Tie between homemade scratch fondant and Satin Ice
!! THE WINNER IS SATIN ICE!!
In the interest of full disclosure: NO ONE paid me anything or provided me with anything for this test. I am a Wilton cake decorating instructor, but they didn't give me anything either.
