i have not tried it yet, i use lizzo mareks recipe that requires 1,25 lbs of Wilton in it and i always liked it… now i’m getting worried too because i have heard a lot of people complaining about the new wilton recipe..

Samantha Corey ...

I only use it when i need black because i cant get a true black fondant on my own. But this crap cracks like crazy!

I use Liz Marek’s marshmallow fondant recipe also, but haven’t tried it with the new Wilton fondant. Has anyone tried it out yet?

Goreti ...

I only use it when I make Liz Marek’s MMF recipe too but I’ve heard others say the exact same thing. I was worried since I have a wedding cake (mind you a first for me) later this month. As soon as I heard that there was a new one, I went to buy 5 lbs of the old one so that I could use it for this cake and have some left over. I used to love mixing it with gumpaste for flowers & figures when I didn’t have MMF on hand. ughh

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

Lucky you Goreti! I tried 4 different stores to try and get some of the old Wilton, but to no avail! Everyone now has the new formula!

Goreti ...

I believe it. I thought about buying more but when I went back a couple of days later all they had was the new formula.

Samantha Corey ...

my walmart in north port fl still has the old stuff. they only have a few of the new stuff. I just wrote a complaint to the company. i’ll see if i get a response.

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

You should buy it all up Samantha! You could probably sell it on Ebay at a higher price than you paid for it! It will be in high demand! LOL!

Little Apple Cakes ...

I know the hobby stores had old ones on sale and got rid of it all before they got in the new one, but i don’t think walmart does that, i will try at my walmart too and get some old ones.

Lecie ...

Omg! Yes I’m going back to making my own fondant! The new Wilton fondant is not holding up nicely on my cakes! It’s stretching and sliding off on the sides, it’s too soft! It has me stressing out, smh

Samantha Corey ...

Lecie… its so strange because its to soft but yet at the same time to dry. I dont get it at all. I can tell buy the taste that there is marshmallow in it but how much i dont know. I wish i could get my mm fondant black. and really dark true colors. but I cant with out it getting to sticky.

Little Apple Cakes ...

oh this is definitely starting to sound like a “satin ice nightmare” that fondant is my nightmare of choice and it seems wilton is going that way too…… had anyone tried to contact wilton and ask about it?

Little Apple Cakes ...

ok i just contacted wilton, i will keep you posted about the answer :)

Samantha Corey ...

yeah i worte to them telling them what is up. and that i wasnt the only one having issues. we shall see.

Samantha Corey ...

just got an email back form wilton s. they are telling me that the feed back they have gotten on the new fondant has been positive. but that they are going to sent me a new box to try again and there new gum tex tylose powder. wich im supper happy to try because if i like i i wont have to buy my tylose online anymore! all in all there a good company to try and make me happy even though i hate this product!
