Make decorations that taste just as good as they look with Wilton Flavored Fondant. Available in three delicious flavors, this fondant adds an extra layer of flavor to your everyday desserts.
Like traditional fondant, Flavored Fondant can be used to cover cakes and make cute cut-out decorations. However, these Flavored Fondants are made using real ingredients and contain no artificial colors. Because of this, Flavored Fondant works and behaves a little differently than the fondant you know and love.
Let’s take a deeper look at Flavored Fondant and explore fun ways to use it, as well as some helpful tips and tricks for guaranteed success every time!
Flavored Fondant vs. Regular Fondant
Available in three yummy flavors – caramel, milk chocolate and white chocolate – Flavored Fondant is similar to regular Decorator Preferred Fondant. Both are great for covering cakes and making cut-out decorations; however, they vary slightly in their ingredients and texture.
Quality Ingredients, Quality Taste
Wilton Flavored Fondants contain no artificial colors and are made using real ingredients. This means the caramel fondant is made with real caramel and the chocolate fondants are made with real milk and white chocolate.
Unlike Wilton Decorator Preferred Fondant, which is most oven vanilla-flavored, this Flavored Fondant adds rich, decadent flavor to your cakes and other treats.
Differences in Texture
Since Flavored Fondant is made using real ingredients, it will behave differently than Decorator Preferred Fondant. Be sure to take care while rolling and covering your cakes with Flavored Fondant, as it may tear if pulled or handled too much.
The soft texture of Flavored Fondant also makes it great for small cut-outs, braided borders and other simple decorations. The texture isn’t quite as strong as Decorator Preferred Fondant, so avoid using Flavored Fondant for molded figurines or larger 3-D fondant decorations.
Can I Add Color to Flavored Fondant?
Due to its soft texture, Flavored Fondant is not ideal for coloring. Too much color could soften the fondant and make it impossible to work with.
Because Flavored Fondant contains no artificial colors, it gets its color from the ingredients used to make it. The caramel fondant is light brown, the milk chocolate fondant is medium brown, and the white chocolate fondant is white.
For best results, we suggest leaving the fondant color as is and using other methods of decorating to add color to your dessert. Top your fondant-covered cake with icing decorations, swirls of buttercream frosting or colorful fondant cut-outs!
Fun with Flavor!
The best thing about Flavored Fondant is that it enhances the flavors of your favorite cake, brownie and cookie recipes! Try the milk chocolate fondant on a rich chocolate cake or add some white chocolate fondant cut-outs to a beautiful strawberry mini cake. The caramel fondant tastes amazing on chocolate brownies or carrot cake cupcakes.
You can also use it to add dimensional decorations to cookies and cakes. Add a braided milk chocolate fondant border to a batch of roll-out cookies or top a red velvet cake with little balls of white chocolate fondant. Great for anyone who loves to have fun with flavor, this Flavored Fondant will dress up your everyday treats in no time!

How to Store Flavored Fondant
Fondant dries out quickly, so be sure to keep it covered or wrapped in plastic wrap when not being used. After decorating, roll unused fondant into a ball and coat with a thin layer of solid vegetable shortening. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature in an airtight container. Stored this way, your fondant should last about a month.
