Has anyone used the red Satic Ice fondant? Is if good? or do you have any other recommendations for a good red fondant?

I've been using it and it's fine. It's just like the regular white vanilla fondant but red. I've used on my strawberry shortcake cake and now I will be using it for a wedding cake I have next week. Better to get premade red fondant than actually coloring yourself. HTH!

I haven't used the red Satin Ice but I did use black and it was really good. No off flavor at all.

Use it and you will love it...the truest red color you will find and the taste is not yucky! I find that it is a little more difficult to work with when covering larger cakes though (it seems to tear on me). But I use it for smaller cakes and decorations all the time.

Leahs, do you have the tearing problem with covering larger cakes or is there a trick to avoiding this from having? I have added PS as well as corn starch and it still happens? Just wondering....

Yes, Satin Ice. One time I colored white fondant. Ugh - not recommended! I'm very happy with the Satin Ice.

I love Satin Ice - it's the only fondant I will use on edible cakes (I use wilton for competition dummy cakes).

Satin Ice is a softer consistency than some other fondants, I believe. I use a silicone mat (from ateco) to roll my fondant out on. When I have it big enough to cover the cake, I lift the mat up, flip is over (with a helper, lol), and lay it down over the cake. Then peel back the silpat and the fondant is on the cake. Then smooth like normal. And no, the fondant has never fallen off the silpat yet.

Hope that helps,
Chelle
