Hi everyone! I've never used satin ice before, I've always used Wilton's fondant. Well I've bought my 1st tub of Satin Ice for a wedding for next weekend. Do you use the same way as Wilton's fondant? It seems really soft will it get hard after sitting out? And do youhave to freeze once it's on the cake? Any advise on using Satin Ice would be appreciated. Thanks.
I, too, just bought my first tub! I love it> It's much easier to use. You roll it just like Wilton's. It does harden. Why would you want to freeze it though?
I use Satin Ice all the time and it works just fine.
I usually roll it out between two sheets of clear plastic. I get it at Walmart, it's in the fabric department and on a roll. I use the medium weight.
I roll it out to size, take off the top sheet of plastic and flip the bottom sheet over onto my cake then carefully peel the plastic away from the fondant. Smooth it down onto your cake as usual.
No you don't need to freeze it. As soon as you're done with your smoothing and trimming just set your cake aside and it will dry.
I hope this helps!!
i would love to try satin ice as well. where do you ladies purchase your satin ice from? or do i need o order off the internet
I bought mine online at Fondantsource.com
Thanks everyone! I read on the Satin Ice website about freezing it. I bouhgt mine at a cake supply store where I live. Can't wait to try it. It has a good flavor. Thanks.
