im just posting cause i somehow found wilton fondant in the uk (on amazon) - i know it tastes awful, but part of me does want to try it just for the comparison. the sensible part of me knows it would be a huge waste of £9!!!!! (almost $13 - i guess thats not the price over there, it must be imported, so more epensive for us? our supermarket fondant is about a third or quarter of the price).
That is expensive! mind you how much do you get for that? I live in the south west now (though am from Glasgow) and we have a great shop near us that sells loads of fondant ready made in loads of colours and for pretty reasonable prices, but saying that sometimes I easily come away having spent £10 - £15 on fondant! Am off there tomorrow, my bank card is quivering! Let me know if you do try the Wilton one!
you could also check under other names. I know that Wilton in Italy is sold under the name Decora. Same stuff, just different packaging...
that was for 500g. im pretty sure tescos is about £1.50 for the same.
so far i have got away with colouring my own fondant, but the cake shop locally sells the coloured stuff for not too much.
well i really wouldn't waist any money on wiltons fondant. Its okay to practice with and okay if you add tylose to it and use as a gum paste but to flat out use it on a cake to eat, NOT worth it even if they are giving it away.
i wouldn't bother. You can get 1kg of regal ice at Tescos for £2.20. I don't bother with Tescos own make as I find it tears easily but at Asda you can buy 500g of their own make for £1.15 or again 1kg for £2.20
Don't bother wasting your money on the Wilton stuff. Sounds like you all have local stuff that will do just fine. There is nothing special about the Wilton stuff at ALL!
I need a European source for Wilton fondant.
No other RF available here is kosher parve, and I sometimes need Wilton for kosher cakes. (Satin Ice isn't available here) That stuff in Italy called Decora... is there a hechsher on the label?
i cant say ive noticed the difference between regal ice and tescos, but i do know i prefer the taste of tescos! but if regal ice is better to work with, i might stick with that for the bigger projects.
