Welcome to Howtocookthat.net, I’m Ann Reardon.
For a full copy of the results of Fondant Review, go to howtocookthat.net There’s a
link in the description below the video. For this first test, each of the fondants
was weighed to 450 grams and then rolled out on non-stick paper to set circle size, then
it was hung over a rolling pin for a one minute 30 to check whether it would crack or break.
The reason it was hung over the rolling pin is because that is often a method people use
to transfer your icing to the cake and you don’t want it to rip before you’ve got it
onto your cake and you don’t want it to pull out of shape. So, then it was put back on
the bench and compared to the original circle. As you can see this homemade fondant here
went a little bit out of shape and the homemade fondant was quite hard to roll out. Next, we got the marshmallow fondant. The
recipe for this is on the website howtocookthat.net. That one again performed okay, was quite difficult
to roll out. The Satin Ice White Vanilla stuck a little
bit to the rolling, add a little bit of icing sugar to stop it sticking but that rolled
out nicely. It hung over the rolling pin no problems for the minute and a half and once
it was put backed in it was hardly out of shape at all. Next, we’ll look at the Bakels Pettinice White
Icing. Some of the other tests that we’ll do with these fondants as checking if it sags
at all, checking once it’s over a cake, which one looks the smoothest and looking at the
color, which one looks the whitest. The Bakels Pettinice hung fine for the minute
and a half and once it was put back in it was very slightly out of shape. Next, we get the Duff fondant. When you get
that one out of the packet, the first thing you notice is it’s very hard compare to the
other fondants but once you break it and start kneading it, it quickly softens up and doesn’t
require anymore kneading than the other fondants did. It rolled out beautifully. It didn’t
need any icing sugar at all to stop it sticking to the roller. Same as the other fondants
so far, it hung without any tears, no breaks, no problem there and once it was puts back
in, so with the circle over the top that it holds right.
Next, we got the FondX fondant in the white, rolled out nicely and hung well. So, don’t forget to watch the other parts
to this review. Some of the fondants performed a lot better than others in different areas.
So, depending what you wanted to use your fondant for that would be important to you. This is the Orchard White Icing which is available
in supermarkets here in Australia that again looked hard when you first took it out of
the packet but kneaded up and become soft very quickly. Rolled out nicely and there
was no problem with hanging it. So, that brings us to the final one in our
test which Cake Art Icing. The Cake Art also rolled out without a problem and managed to
last the minute and a half. Don’t forget to subscribe to this channel,
