I'm making my first tiered cake for my sons 1st B-day. I was wondering what I should use? I've never tried the satin ice, I ordered it in black and red to make a practice cake first. I'm soooo nervous. I also have to transport it 50 miles. Any advice would be great help. I've attached a picture of the cake I will be attempting to make. Thanks.
I like them both, as far as taste goes.
But I prefer mmf b/c it's so simple to make, and obviously, less expensive. I do buy Satin Ice when using black and red though. Less mess.
I buy Satin Ice...I just love the ease of not having to make it and the colors are AMAZING and it doesn't taste half bad! BUT there is nothing wrong with MMF at all!!!!! Depending on the colors you need. Satin Ice's Red and Black are hands down the easiest to use because those two colors can be very hard to get perfect!! Good luck!
I have used both and I personally like both flavors but I prefer Satin Ice. Of course it is MUCH more expensive so that is something to take into consideration. I have colored my fondant Red and Black but it does take a lot of color and I always leave mine to rest over night so the color can fully saturate.
Also, I don't think the photo uploaded like you wanted it to. I can't see it.
Thank you. Now, can anyone tell me how to post pictures on my posts? I'm a bit lost http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1164935
