I just saw the new flavors of fondarific on Global Sugar Arts site and was wondering if anyone has used them yet. If so how do they taste and how does the workability compare to satin ice?

Wow! I did not know that GSA was carrying it now. Yes I have used it and I totally love it. I however will order it directly from the company as I am crazy about thier customer service. The Buttercream is awesome. The vanilla is also very good. If you get the frut flavors I would just use them as decorations but I know some people use it to totally cover cakes.

WOW I did not know that Globalsugarart was carring it either thanks for the info, I will buy it from them and it is the cheapest that I have seen so far, and globalsugarart had a good customer service and reputation too, I have ordered from them and got my stuff very quickly, I have never made a cake with it but I have gotten samples and have tasted it and it tastes great.

Tiggy,

If you go to Fondarific's website, you can order a sample pack for $6. It comes with their standard flavors (vanilla, buttercream, and chocolate) as well as your choice of two of their other flavors.

There was a mix up on my order and customer service was great and fixed it, even better than I requested, right away.

I'm so excited about trying the buttercream! I went to the website, but couldn't find the sample order for $6.00. Is that something you have to contact customer service and ask for?

If you click on shopping cart, it will open a new window. There you can order their products, including the sample packs. It's actually www.shop.fondarific.com.

ETA: Oops, more to that: http://shop.fondarific.com/main.sc

You get all the flavors from cakessupplies4u, but it is way smaller, I bought the sample from them, before I knew about the sample from fonderific, and I am way happier with the sample from fonderific it is a lot more, you can actually make one flower or teo cookies from it

I just used the black buttercream flavored fondarific today and it is awesome! I love it--it is so easy to work with and smelled so good--I didn't taste it, it was BLACK! Anyway, I am totally sold on it--it is so easy to work with! icon_smile.gif

I just received my first order of Fondarific yesterday and it was liquified. Is this normal? I haven't used it before and wanted to try it out. Now I am not so sure!

On the back of the card that came with mine were these instructions:

"Fondarific in Summer Months. Do not be alarmed if Fonadarific is very soft and buttery. Let Fondarific return to room temperture and knead the bloom (white coating) if present back into the product. This will not affect the quality of Fondarific.

Fondarific in Winter Months. Fondarific may arrive hard. Put Fondarific in the microwave for 10 seconds per pound. DO NOT OVER HEAT if you do, allow product to return to room temperture, knead and you are ready to roll out Fondarific.

No powdered sugar, conrstarch or shortening is necessary for rolling Fondarific."

Hope that helps!

Thanks so much. This is exactly what mine did when I checked it the next morning. Glad to know that this is normal and that mine had not gone bad. I wasn't going to use it, but now that I know that it is ok, I can't wait to try it.

I ordered some Fondariffic last spring (buttercream and some flavored samples) and had mixed results. It tasted great, but it was too soft to make decorations with. Mixing in gumpaste helped some, but the practice roses I made with it never did fully dry out and set. After a couple of days it looked like they were melting.

I also had the problem with it forming a white film. I was able to knead it back into the buttercream version ok, but the flavored ones turned into plastic-y goop. (I did not have an instruction/heat warning card with my order) I think it's not that the product is bad, but that I live in a part of the country where it's too hot for it work properly. It does seem to be very sensetive to heat.

If I ever order it again, it would be for use on cookies and cupcakes, and I'll place my order in the winter time. I would not use to cover a full size cake or for decorations. For that I'll stick to Fondx and Satin Ice.
