Hi I am new to this site and I really love cake making. Give me a reason and I will bake away. I am so tired of frosting and have been watching the food network where they use fondant, they indicate ordering the stuff. Can anyone point me in the right direction to order premade fondant? Thank you. icon_smile.gif

Welcome to Cake Central. You certainly can order fondant, ready to use.

Satin Ice is a good one- you can order it through the link to Global sugar Arts, in this site at a discount.

There are several recipes to make your own, but I recommend you try ready made, so you know how it is supposed feel and handle. then when you make it yourself, you will know when it is right. It is easy to add too much powdered sugar to recipes, and end up with dry cracking fondant.

Wilton is available in most local stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and even Walmart. It is easy to use for practice- but it doesn't taste good at all.

You can also buy Satin Ice at intotheoven.com and it is cheaper than global sugar art.I highly recommened Satin Ice it tastes great and is easy to work with.

Oh yes!

i have tried many brands chocopan, fondx, I just got samples of that new fondarific stuff, and satin ice.

Here are some sites to check out:

globalsugarart.com
choco-pan.com
fondarific.com (not sure about this one)
countrykitchensa.com
cakedeco.com

Take a look at these sites and see what is available and the prices. I love to work with fondant myself. It is certainly worth a try to see if it is a medium you enjoy.

I agree about the Wilton fondant great for practice and dummies not so good to eat.

Good luck with it! icon_smile.gif

I just finished using Satin Ice for the first time and it tastes pretty good! It was easy to use and it worked great. I made the mermaid cake in my photos with it. I ordered it from Global Sugar Art and it came extremely fast!! I was very satisfied with their service. If you are desperate for fondant yes you can get the wilton one but just like Joann said it tastes terrible!!!

Satin Ice is the best, Wilton is the worst. I order mine from www.decopac.com as they have a shipping cap ($27!!) and I'm in Alaska.

Sorry but not true... that fondx is $3.39 per pound ($33.90 for 10#) and I get my satin ice for $2.80 per pound. Both costs are before shipping.

Decopac requires a tax id#. If she's a home baker, like me, I think that caljava online is her best option. But thanks for the info.
(not to mention that I made that post last *August* and prices may very well have changed since then)

Foxymomma521- I've never ordered from them before. Have you had good results with them?

I haven't ordered from them since last summer, I've sort of stopped doing cakes... Anyway, the shipping was always quick, and I never had a problem with an order...
I did get an email from fondantsource. com that has a 15% off coupon today- the code is "anniversary".... maybe that would be even cheaper?

carolgaler Posted 22 Jan 2009 , 3:10pm

Where I buy Satin Ice start at $45 ** and the shipping is not bad. They also offer Pettinice Rolled fondant at very good prices too and soon they will be offering Choco-pan and Fodarific.

The offer free shipping (not for fondant) for orders above $75

check it out www.piskypixie.com

foxymomma521 Posted 22 Jan 2009 , 7:36pm

lol... I've never ordered from gsa before... they really have the market cornered on this site, huh?

KoryAK Posted 22 Jan 2009 , 7:43pm

Sorry for all the posts guys! Geez my pc kept giving me an error I had to idea I was being obnoxious!! lol


and foxy... I'm a little confused... didn't you say you got it there and then you say you didn't.... is it one of those lovely CC things where you type one thing and they lovingly substitute another, totally different thing? (really makes for clear communication icon_smile.gif )

foxymomma521 Posted 22 Jan 2009 , 8:11pm

Nope, never ordered there, it's a cc thing. I personally think their prices are astronomical.

I'm very upset with Cake Central, my post was edited by them. It appears as if they edited many of our posts and replaced our posted web addresses with global sugar art. That is cr@p and seems like boarder line illegal censorship.

I DO NOT BUY MY FONDANT FROM GLOBAL SUGAR FARTS! I BUY FROM ANOTHER SITE WHICH HAS FREE SHIPPING. _PISKYPIXIE_ _DOT_ _COM

KoryAK Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 12:01am

Jackie, I can totally understand you not putting certain names up as it is YOUR site to do with what you like.... but I think we could all appreciate it if it came up <blocked> or <censored> or something as I know s ugarcraft used to and not have another name inserted. It makes for very unclear communication.

carolgaler Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 1:02am

I couldn't agree more with fellow cc member KoryAk...
