I normally make MM fondant but recently found out that I can purchase a 5# countainer of satain ice from a local bakery. I haven't seen the container yet and I'm just wondering if anyone knows if that's a good bit of fondant or about how many cakes it will decorate.

The price is a little high but I figure with the money I'd save in shipping and the time in making homemade it might be worth the purchase if it's a good amount in the container.

Thanks guys thumbs_up.gif

Well, one person's 'good bit' is another's 'itty bit'. I order fondant 30 lbs. at a time.

My question to you is, how much fondant does a batch of your MMF yield? And how many cakes can you cover with that? If you've never weighed it, just add up the weight of all your ingredients.

I just made my first MMF the other day and I wanted to see how the quantity compares to the 2lb/5lb of satin ice that I usually buy - I weighted the MMF and it weighed right at about 3lbs.

So that should give you an idea of "how much" is in the tub. Its more that 1 batch but not quite as much as 2 of MMF.

THANK YOU...that's what I needed to know. duh never thought to weigh the MM fondant when I made it.

Now if it will taste as good as everyone says - I'm off to the bakery.

Thanks everyone.
