Fondant

How should fondant taste and feel?

 

I ordered a fondant cake for my daughter's birthday and found it to be tasteless, rubbery, and thick.  It seemed old like it was made 2 days before at least.  It's been awhile since I have cut a fondant cake but I don't remember sawing the fondant to get threw.

I use Fondarific...and yes there is a bit of "tooth", once you start chewing the texture is soft (not really chewy almost melts) and it tastes (I buy the buttercream flavor) great, IMO.

Sounds like someone was not all that experienced or they make /use a brand that tears easily.

To compensate it was rolled out way too thick and yes probably covered a few days too early so this thick mass started drying out.

Custom cakes are so very expensive sorry it happened to you.

I would approach the baker (with a bit of leftover product if it didn't end up in the trash bin) and ask for an explanation.

The initial cut may need to be a light sawing motion (to get a nice neat portion) but after that just down... slide out... and wipe your knife.
