I hear that fondant isn't good tasting, is there a fondant that is or is it just not as good a reg. frosting?!
it all depends on what flavor and texture of fondant you use, honestly, as long as the cake inside tastes good, it shouldn't be an issue because fondant either is tasteless or tastes sugary... as far as i know, butter cream is best to stick to, like the previous "answerer" if that's what we're called haha.
J, personally, I would stick to the butter cream. If you know your way around a piping bag, you can dress a cake real well. I hate fondant, I always leave, to the point my wife gets embarrassed that I refuse to eat cakes with fondant.
