Well, it's new to me. They have 12 flavors-one being buttercream, and 10 colors.

Love to know if any of you have used this.

It looks good, but WOW! That's way more than I spend on SatinIce, I hope it's worth it.
According to their chart, if I wanted to make a 14" 10" and 6" round, it would take 8.5 lbs of fondant so I would need a 10# container. That would be $80 delivered! That has to be the priciest fondant on the market. I'm waiting to see what other people think before I buy it, thanks for posting...

Thats what I was thinking! I'm new to using fondant and don't have much experience with using different ones. I liked the idea of all of the colors and flavors. I know you can mix your own colors, but its hard to get a good red it seems.

They do have wholesale pricing, so maybe I can find a cake shop that sells it-but mark up may still make it spendy.

That is pricey fondant. I currently use Satin Ice and love it. Maybe I might try one of the flavored ones to see how I like it. Thanks for the info.

Satin Ice does sell red. I've never tried it (due to $$ and shipping costs) but they do carry those hard to get colors.


What I find interesting is they say it's a good source of Vit C? icon_confused.gif

I have used the red, black and purple from Satin Ice. The colors are really rich. My avatar pic shows the red and purple fondant. I don't think I'll be switching brands, but maybe I'll get a flavored one to try for a special cake.

Choco-pan tastes delicious (made from white chocolate) and is about half the price of this stuff if you get it from www.intotheoven.com It may also come in colors.

interesting info on their site:

wholesale pricing is available 25%-30% according to shopping cart page

and

on the shipping policies page >>

"We make all orders fresh. Once we receive your order it will take 3 to 5 days before shipping.
If longer than 5 days you will be notified by
e-mail."

custom made fondant!

That explains the price. I wonder if it has a shorter shelf life?

It says that the shelf life is one year.

Too pricey for me, although I would love to taste it. I will stick to Fondyx & Satin Ice & continue flavoring it myself.

Those are some funky flavors though. How would they blend with the cake flavor underneath? And what if you were using more than one color on one cake, some of those would not make a very good combination! I'm with the others, I think I'll stick with my Satin Ice and add flavor if I want!

The flavors are mainly for kids cupcakes and cakes. The butter cream, vanilla and chocolate are for wedding and grooms cakes mainly. If you have tasted a skittle that is what the kid flavor taster like. And what kid would not want that on their cupcake or cake.

Interesting. They have a nice site and cute logo but IMO they have a seriously tough road ahead with those prices.

Even at 30% off of the retail price, 20lbs of vanilla costs more than twice what we pay for 20lbs of Satin Ice... as a small cake shop in the current economy, that increase just wouldn't work for us.

I love the idea and I am always excietd about new products... Hopefully it will work out for them.
