I wondered if any of you ladies who regularly use Satin Ice might have the hook up on who has the best prices??? I've found a wide range of prices, S/H charges, you name it. Is there a web provider that typically has a good price, including S/H? Thanks!

Decopac.com has the usual low price ($13 for 5#) but the shipping is only $27 no matter how much you order (2 day air) which really matter to me! (in Alaska)

also, if I'm not mistaken, Fondantsource gives a discount when you enter cakecentral in the coupon code.

I called Santin Ice directly and they were cool enough to put me in touch with a local distributor who offered the lowest prices!! I'm not kidding!! Call them directly and ask them to referr you and they'll do it! I order mine from Ambassador Foods in Valencia, CA and they'll deliver it next day!!

For two 20lb buckets of white vanilla they only charge $117 WITH delivery!! That's the best value I've found!! Breaks down to $58.50 per 20lb bucket with delivery included!

My supply store charges at least $20.00 more for the same bucket I get for $58.50!

I order directly from Satin Ice. You have to get a case (40 lbs). They get it out quick and the shipping isn't bad. I paid for 5-5 lb buckets of white satin ice and 1-5 lb bucket of their gumpaste (I'm too lazy to make Nicholas Lodges' recipe) and it cost me with shipping 151.93. I paid $20.00 for the gumpaste and $16.25 each for the fondant. Shipping was $18.18.
I think it is more cost effective to order the 20 lb buckets but I like the 5 pounders. HTH

I personally think fondantsource has the cheapest prices on everything. And believe me, I have searched. They offer a 20 lb. bucket of white satin ice for $45.99. The colored 2 lbs are $8.50, ans 5 lbs of colored is $16.99. I only pay $8.00 shipping, and that's with 5 lbs of satin ice, as well as 2 other items. And if they're out of something, just call Brian and he'll tell you when it'll be in stock, and even put some aside for you before adding it online as "in stock".

Ladies, ladies, check out Global Sugar Arts, they have sale on Satin Ice, 20 pound bucket is only $47.49, don't remember what it cost me for s&h, but it ordered other stuff too, and it wasn't too bad. That is the best price I found.

I just received a 20# bucket on Monday & it was only $45.99 plus shipping. I ordered some other stuff so my total won't help here.

Sorry it was from Global Sugar Art.

I usually order mine from www.intotheoven.com. For me, their shipping charges are better than Global Sugar Art. That may just be where I'm located, though. I just started Wilton's Fondant and Gumpaste class so I stocked up. icon_smile.gif

I usually buy from Into the Oven. Their 20# of white is $47.89 and shipping is $10.79.

I am definitely going to check out fondantsource though. Thanks for the tip ladies!

I love fondant source! With the CC discount and ground shipping to Houston, a 20 lb bucket of white Satin Ice is $55.80. That's WAAAAY better than my local cake store- They charge like $90 for the same thing.

How long will fondant keep if in an airtight container? Can it be split up and frozen?

I haven't found major difference in price when ordering online. I order from Global Sugar Art regularly. You cant beat their customer service and fast delivery.

It probably depends on where you live because while the prices are all pretty competitive, it's the shipping where you'll find the difference. For me, into the oven is cheaper than any other site mentioned.

Thank you for posting this website! I've never purchased fondant before, I've only made MMF. But I think the prices are pretty good. I might try it next month for my mother's day cake. It will give me a chance to try it, and not to mention not having to make it and cleaning up after the MMF! thumbs_up.gif

For me Sadly (because I love Global Sugar Art) it is cheeper to go with Fondant Source..... 10.00 cheeper with them...... 74.40 vs. 64.70
It adds up. and that is not on sale....

I made mmf once, and I thought it was better than wilton fondant by far. Then I was passing through Orlando, so i stopped by fondantsource. I bought a 20 pound satin ice, and a 5 ound black satin ice. I couldn't believe how delicious they were. So no more mmf or wilton for me! The owner Brian is super nice, and will do everything he can to help you, and if you want something they don't carry, just email him and he can usually get it for you.

Tiggy, I'm pretty sure fondant can keep forever(maybe not literally, but a REALLY long time, in an airtight container. I don't think you should freeze it. If you don't have a container, make sure to wrap it really well in plastic wrap, then put in a ziplock bag and make sure to get all the air out before you seal it up. It will hold up w/o drying out like that, or you can do that and then stick it in some tupperware for adding security!

I've been thinking about it for a while & I finally decided to try Satin Ice. I ordered a 5 lb bucket from fondantsource for $21.53 (this included S/H & the 10% cake central discount). More expensive then what I can make MMF for, but I HATE the mess in making it. icon_mad.gif

I just checked the pricing at fondantsource.... their regular price for 20#s IS $.30 less per pound than decopac, and with the 10% discount it's even more.... But here's the shipping comparison (shipping charges ONLY, then product included):

FS 20#: $64.56, 110.55
DP 20#: $27, 79

FS 100#: $270.42, 500.37
DP100#: $27, 287

And that's FS's UPS ground vs Decopac's UPS 2nd day air. FS'S 2nd day is even worse (UPS rates not their fault, but still Decopac has flat shipping)

Yeah... not for me!!!
