do a search on wilton fondant here and read what has been said about it in the forums. you'll find the majority of individuals find it works well, dries quickly, but detests the taste/texture.

I just purchased fondant from a local bakery. They charged $10/kg (2.2 lbs). I understand it stays soft and workable for a month if very well wrapped at cool room temperature.

Definitely Satin Ice is the best in my opinion. It's all I use for my biz and people love it. The cheapest place to buy it is www.intotheoven.com

SatinIce is awesome and you can try it right now ON SALE at globalsugarart!! They have 25% off! It's all I use and the Black and the Red are TRUE in color! It has a 1 year shelf life if kept in the container it comes in! WILTON's flavor is by far some of the worse on the market. Try the satinice while it's on sale...it's worth it to give it a shot!

Ditto.....SatinIce......the taste is great and the smell is incrediable........well worth the extra $$$.......No comparison to Wilton.....About the only thing Wilton is good for is for modeling figures and practice cakes.
