Nancy how do you make fondant taste worth eating! Its difficult to explain to everyone don't eat the top layer of the icing because it tastes terrible, looks great but how do you make it taste worth eating?

You can add extracts and candy flavors to rolled fondant - simply knead it in.  Don't add too much, though - you don't want to overshadow the great flavor of your cake.

Some people also feel that the rolled fondant picks up the flavor of the buttercream icing underneath if they put more than a crumb coating of buttercream on the cake first.
