    Fondant is nice to look at and photograph. However if I wanted to eat cake and (enjoy) the taste of it, frosting is the only way to go!

      I agree, It seems Rather Popular today And I love how it looks, but it seems Like building with playdough and tastes like it, too.

    Frosting is much tastier in my personal opinion. Perhaps it's psychological on my part because fondant looks so much like play-food, but it tastes and feels weird when I eat a cake covered in it.

    Also... this is *completely* snobbish and I fully admit that, but! My mom and a few other people I admire used to make elaborate birthday cakes for us/their kids when we were young, all of them using regular frosting. Fondant is basically made for shaping, so it seems a little like taking the "easy"* way to me and I'm more impressed by the traditional cake decorating methods.

    *Though please let me add that I do not in any way believe that people who are creating such amazing cake sculptures out of fondant are having an "easy" time of anything! It's still a learned skill and creative talent.

      Amanda Great point it does seem like more of a challenge to create a beautiful cake with frosting. Kinda like difference between Drawing a beautiful picture vs tracing
