I am trying to discover what is the best fondant to use for decorating. Can anyone help me? I also what to know where i could purchase the fondant.
I prefer Fondx. It's easy to work with and can be put in the frig (not super cold) which makes it nice if you use perishable fillings. Pricey though. I made mine when I can.
I use Satin Ice and I love it.
where can I purchase?
I really like Satin Ice. It has a decent taste and nice, smooth finish. Global Sugar Art has it available. I also purchase mine locally at www.createacakeshop.com.
I have used Wilton, Satin Ice and made my own. I hated wilton it doesn't taste very good and was harder to work with than Satin Ice. Satin Ice also tastes better. I think marshmallow fondant is the way to go, it is so much cheaper.
You can buy Satin Ice online, just google it and find the best price. Some speciality stores will carry it as well. Good luck!
I personally like Satin Ice for most things. I also like pettinice's chocolate. It tastes like toostie rolls and is nice to work with
I like Fondx- I bought it at www.caljavaonline.com
I will say SatinIce is yummy too!
Satin Ice is yummy easy to work with and smells incredible.....for Chocolate I like Pettinice.....
I like satin ice the best because even though MMF is cheaper, I hate the mess of making fondant. Plus the MMF has to be microwaved to be workable, and when you make figures out of it sometimes they will crack upon drying. Satin Ice will have to get pretty expensive before I ever switch back.
Satin Ice is the best! great to work with comes in a bunch of colors, i think its cheap and it tastes pretty good! i usually buy it at my local baking shop
wait let me correct myself its not cheap its less expensive .. jeje a 1lb plain white cost me about $9 and 5lb $17 now the color ones cost a little more
Metrocakes- What other products do you use from that site besides the Satin ice?
I use Fondx...it doesnt have the same vanillie flavor that Satin Ice has, which a lot of my brides complained about. They want to taste the cake. I also like Masse, but it is VERY expensive. I use it only for special special occassions. I also use a lot of rolling chocolate and mix it with the fondx. Is a very nice flavor!
We use Massa Tacino, but when we can't get it, fondx is our go to fondant. Satin Ice somehow tastes heavy to me. Bakels is my second favorite, but is tough to locate aat a reasonable price around here. Since its from Australia, it may be cheaper on the west coast.
btw, Fondx is actualy a little cheaper then Satin Ice...I think a lot of people think its more because it comes in 10 lb and not 20 lb. But I was paying 45 for the 20 lbs of Satin Ice and I now pay 21 for 10 lbs of Fondx.
