I'm not a fan of fondant. I think it tastes yuckky. I don't make cakes with fondant. I've had lots of people come to me and ask me to do a fondant cake. I tell them that I can, but it won't taste like my cakes they've had before. My cakes sell because of the way they taste. I'm a good decorator (not fantastic, just good), but everyone loves the taste.
Personally, I'll pass on the fondant. It does make lovely looking cakes.
I'll never forget the first fondant cake I ever tasted. I was at a wedding reception, and I put a big bite in my mouth. Then, I was in a quandry as what to do with it.........and it had the consistency of an old tire. I've tasted some fondant cakes since then that weren't as objectionable, but I'll always remember that wedding cake. It was lovely, but most of it was thrown in the trash.
