Ok, so I keep hearing about this compared to wilton fondant. Where do I find it? And I know this may seem a dumb question but what does mmf stand for?

I'd love to know too!!!

Gapi Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:44pm

Of course!!!

Satin Ice/Fondant:

1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1/2 cup glucose
1/4 cup cold water
3 tablespoons glycerine
2 lb (900g) confectioners´sugar
extract

Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in small bowl. Let it stand for 5 min.
Add shortening, glucose and glycerine to the gelatin and water. Place on heat until dissolved. Do not overheat. Remove from heat. Add extract.

Sift confectioners´sugar and make a well in the center. Add the gelatin mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, add sugar a little at a time, until stickiness disappears. Knead in remaining sugar until the fondant is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands. Store in airtight container in a cool dry place.

NOTE: You use cornstarch when you are kneading the fondant to cover a cake.

Well, hope it´s clear. If you have any questions I´ll be happy to answer.

Can you make flours and things like regular fondant?

stikykitty Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 7:46pm

Fascination Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 8:09pm

Gapi
thank you thank you

ps3884 Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 8:19pm

I love Satin Ice. I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

sshoshie Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 8:29pm

How much extract? Vanilla or another flavor?

Gapi Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 9:02pm

Your welcome!
Yes, you can make regular flowers. It´s really just another kind of fondant. I would mix it with gumpaste because 100% fondant flowers are very delicate and can break easily.

You can add about 2 teaspoons of any clear extract. I use almond extract. You can taste it and see if you like it or add more.

When I make my fondant I cover the cake the same day. It works better this way for me.

Good luck!

Hi Gapi, thanks for recipe. Could you clarify something. You say sift the sugar & make a well, add the gelatin mixture, stir with wooden spoon. add the sugar till stickiness disapears. knead in the remaining sugar. Where does the extra sugar come from, do you reserve some before making the well? Sorry to be a nuisance.

Gapi Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 12:54pm

Sorry. What I do is that I don´t pour all the sugar in case I don´t need it all. I do it gradually. First, I use a big bowl and add some sugar about (500 grs.) and add the gelatin mixture I mix it with a wooden spoon and pour more sugar until it´s not too sticky and then I pour all the mixture in the board and I keep adding the sugar. If you have more questions don´t hesitate.

superstar Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 8:24pm

Thanks Gapi,
I thought that was what you meant, but I just wanted to confirm.

Gapi Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 9:44pm

Sorry, the thing is that eventhough I think my english is very good I´m not a native speaker and sometimes I might not express 100% correctly.

superstar Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 10:15pm

Your English is wonderful, you explained everything very well.

jenbenjr Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 10:28pm

that recipe is very similar to the one I use.....it is posted on here as "Toba Garrett's fondant".......I love it....much nicer than mmf!

lendler Posted 2 Apr 2007 , 10:35pm

is it called satin icing because it has a shinny appearance?

Gapi Posted 3 Apr 2007 , 12:39am

hum that´s the same question my husband asked me. I really wouldn´t say so.

Daniellemhv Posted 3 Apr 2007 , 12:49am

Thank you so much Gapi!!

CakesByEllen Posted 3 Apr 2007 , 2:04pm

It's not shiny. Perhaps it's called Satin Ice because it is satiny soft and smooth to work with? Not shiny though.

I'm definitely going to buy the ingredients and try this one!

Let me know what you think. I wonder if the extra few TBS make it a bit more workable?

carleen2140 Posted 12 Nov 2012 , 12:05am

I know this is an old thread, but if I want to make the SI recipe, where would I find Glycerine and Glucose.  I been to several pharmacy and they look at me like I nuts when I tell them what the glycerine is for, apparently glycerine is only sold in suppository form. Every time I mention glucose they're not sure what I want so they show me a Glucose measuring kit or reader. Anyone have any idea where this is sold?
