I usually find fondant to be beautiful, but less tasty than frosting. Of course, one can make a tasteless frosting, but since fondant is optimized for structural/decorative use instead of taste it's more prone to this problem.

I really like those ridiculous princess cakes with the dome of green marzipan. Yum.

I agree. I've never worked with fondant but it does seem to be more versatile but frosting is yumm!
