I'd never worked with fondant before this, I reviewed application videos on U-Tube then went for it. Walmart got the product to me very quickly at a great price. It was a lot easier to work with than I imagined, only suggestion, get a very wide fondant roller. The product is so dense a standard roller leave small lines visible (mostly to the person doing the work). My grandson loved the cake, as did all the party attendees. I needed the fondant as a smooth base for the "sugar sheet" topping I used. For the trim I used a buttercream frosting.

This fondant is my go to!
I have been professionally decorating cakes for three years now and although I've only tried two different types, this is by far the best! It is super workable and not too stiff. It leaves a nice smooth surface without needing to add ANY corn starch/sugar or shortening. Other fondant I've used wrinkles more easily and cracks like crazy, but not Wilton! And did I mention the taste? Amazing!
Does not hold up on tall cakes!!!
I was making a birthday cake for my niece who turned 1... Everything was planned meticulously for perfect results. Just after achieving perfect height and frosting being leveled to perfection, I roll out my fondant and proceeded to drape it over my cake. Pretty much instantly, while attempting to smooth the fondant (beginning at the top) it started to separate. Small little areas at first. I continued to keep smoothing the fondant all around the cake and thought I'd just cover up some of those areas later.....I let it rest for an hour, came back into the kitchen to find the fondant was sliding right down the sides of the cake. Same thing happened to my sis-in-law when she used Wilton fondant for a wedding cake! If you have a small 6" round cake, maybe even an 8", it holds up ok. Definitely NOT for anything bigger!
I just bought this fondant and all of these cracks appeared when I was flattening it and once I put it on the cake it completely stretched and separated. I went to go buy a new package and still all of these cracks began to appear. I use to love working with this fondant brand and never had an issue but now I am going to have to start looking for another brand.
I've been using this fondant for over 10 years and this is the worst I've seen. I thought my first few boxes were a fluke but once I've bought a few more, I noticed they are all the same. Cracks, non stretching, ugly to roll out. Guess I will start shopping around for a better fondant. Disappointed for sure.
