Hello, never used satin ice but I have used wilton fondant mainly for accents. I had to use it to cover a cake the other day. HATED it. It seemed so hard to roll it as big as I need for this cake. Was it me? Is satin ice better to roll? I want to make my own fondant but Im not good at having things turn out so it would be a waste of money for me if it doesnt. Any suggestions if you have used wilton?
Wilton is okay to work with, but the taste is beyond gross. Satin Ice is lovely to work with and tastes really good actually. I've tried making my own. Love the taste of homemade fondant, but I still have not mastered getting it the right consistency, so I haven't successfully used homemade to cover a cake with. Satin Ice is great! Don't ever use Wilton again. I don't know how it even qualifies as "food." Blech!
I'm pretty new, but I found that anything tastes better than Wilton Fondant. I've tried Satin Ice , Fondariffic and Patinice. They all tasted great and work well. Dark colors tend to be softer and a little sticky. I love Jennifer Dontz's, chocolate fondant recipe. You can make it any flavor or color and it is so easy to work with. It does not distort when you pick it up out of molds or onto the cake.

Satin Ice all the way!!! That's all I use. I haven't attempted to make my own fondant as of yet, still a little to scared to do that... but haven't had any problems whatsoever with the Satin Ice.
Yep, SatinIce. I've made MMF several times but it comes out different every time so I've just learned to get SatinIce.
I used Wilton for a dummy cake (thats all its really good for) as I had a nice 50% coupon. Never again. It is HARD to roll out, its like rubber!!! I could use any other fondant, roll it out thinner and it ended up costing the same. (Wilton, btw, AINT CHEAP!!)
I personally prefer Fondx...Satin ice to me has a too strong of a flavor and is too stretchy and soft.
Hi, Can someone give me the Santin Ice Recipe so I can try it. I always worked with fondant. I would like to try the Santin Ice. like to learn new stuff. Thank U

Satin ice all the way...I love, love. love it. The Wilton stuff is horrible. I have Satin Ice in just about ever color execpt one. Love their black and red - the colors are amazingly true! The darker colors are a little bit softer but I just add some cornstarch or powdered sugar and it stiffens it up a bit. Try Satin Ice while it is still on sale at Globalsugarart it will be worth it. It has a shelf life of one year so even if you don't use it right away you have time to get to it. Good luck!
miasuzzette, Satin Ice is a commercially-sold premade fondant ~ there is no recipe for it. If you want a good recipe to make fondant try this one:
Thank you for all the comments. I will have to try satin ice.
Want a good way to ruin a great tasting cake? Cover it with wilton fondant, ewww!
I use it for inedible things, like red loopy bows, but other than that, satin ice is excellent tasting and easy to use.
Satin Ice is definitely the way to go! I started off (which was not too long ago) using Wilton because it was easy to get in my area and I was just practicing. Not only is it tough to use it taste gross. I bought my first small bucket of Satin Ice a few weeks ago and I absolutely love using it!
Is Jennifer Dontz's fondant recipe posted on cc's recipes? Or would you be able to post it? I would like to try her fondant. Thanks
