Just wondering if anyone has heard of EasyIce fondant? I usually use Satin Ice, but there is a supplier here in Ontario that carries a brand called EasyIce and it is alot cheaper than Satin Ice.
Anyone heard of it or, better yet, used it?
Thanks in advance!
I've never heard of it. If you decide to try it, let me know how it turns out for you. I'd love to know!
I LOVE Easy Ice.. It's the only fondant I use.. Super affordable and great to work with. LOVE IT!!! I hate eating fondant so I'm not sure of the taste but my 5 year old would eat the entire tub if I let her..
Ok now I'm curious.... Where do you find this stuff? I usually make my own but I have a BIG order comming up and was thinking of buying Satin Ice but the price!
Yes...I'd also love to know where to buy the Easy Ice Fondant!
At McCalls in Toronto... www.mcCalls.ca ....
It comes pre coloured in 1 kg packages too.. I wish they'd do bigger pre coloured tubs..
Thanks muddpuppy. It is alot cheaper than Satin Ice (which I love working with). I'll have to give it a try and see how it goes.
I tasted McCalls fondant at ICES last year and was so yummy. I don't know if it was easy ice but it was made by MCCalls in Canada. Do they ship to the US?
Anyone used this since this thread was created?
Not me. I forgot that it existed!
I checked their website, and they have 10kg of white for $42! I don't know what that's like you guys, but here in Edmonton AB the cheapest I've found is $35 for 5kg of Glacier white. If only McCalls shipping calculator was working properly
I think I'll give it a try next time I'm in Toronto! I am currently waiting to hear back from them to see whether or not it is vegan-friendly. It says dairy-free, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that no other byproducts are in there either!
You are right though, the price is amazing. Pretty curious to see how it is to work with!
I have worked with it. I like the Satin Ice way better, but in a pinch it works. The problems i found with it was that sometimes it was dryed out on the edges. I have only had it in 2 lb. packages though. I will never ever try to use it on a large tier again though. It is really hard to work with on large cakes. I was totally wore out from the kneeding and re rolling because it kept tearing when I tried to move a large piece. I switched to Satin Ice and have never had the problems that I had with Easy Ice.
I am soon to be taking 3 classes with Andrea from Sweet cakes and I intend on trying the easy ice fondant because that is what she recomends. I am in the US and I use SI colors and Fondarific white on a regular basis. Both I like...both exspensive!
I will also bring home lots of fun cake stuff from Canada as things seem to be cheaper for some reason...can not wait to go to Goldas kitchen!
I will let everyone know what I think of the fondant.
