Where to Buy Fondant Online

Updated on May 11, 2012

Fondant is Fun and Tasty!

Many amateur and professional cooks are looking for where to buy fondant. Cakes are inherently delicious; hence, they're usually all about presentation. That's why we have the phrase, "The icing on the cake," which refers to the extra 'something' -- usually, fondant -- that pushes the cake to the next level. On this page we will point you in the right direction to buy fondant online for all your decorating needs!

What is Fondant?

Fondant is a mixture of sugar and water with a smooth consistency. Unlike icing, fondant has a wider range of applications -- as filling, covering or decoration, depending on the baker's design and creation. A baker might add a bit of flavored fondant to the center of a delicious cupcake, so that, when bitten, a sweet explosion delights the palate. On the other hand, a baker might use it to make a perfectly seamless cover for their cake. The smooth appearance looks stunning while being a prime way to impress the sight before impressing the taste.

Poured Fondant and Uses

Poured fondant is another option, and has a glossier sheen and different mode of application, which starts by heating to a liquid state. From that point, the fondant can be poured over confections, or become a pool for dipping, which allows even coverage and texture. Lastly, fondant's consistency lends it to use for small decorations. Flowers, people, accessories, animals, and more objects can be quickly crafted from fondant and applied to a cake.

Why Buy Fondant Online?

Fondant is really a versatile material. Although it can be made from scratch or bought in stores, many bakers choose to buy fondant online; quick shipping, a wide selection, and low prices make this an attractive option. For this reason, many search on sites such as Amazon or eBay. A simple search for fondant, with or without flavor, returns a list of sellers that could number well into the thousands. So, where would a baker begin? By knowing what kind of fondant they need, and narrowing results until finding the perfect seller.

      I love fondant. I make my own using a marshmallow fondant recipe. I took a cake decorating class, which is where I learned how to use it.
