I was wondering what kind of fondant you use.....the only fondants available to me here in the town I live in are:
Dawn
Wilton
virgin ice
if you have tried any of these 3 which one or ones did you like the best?

Any other fondant I would have to order online and shipping is crazy!!!

I use McCalls fondant. I think it tastes better and the Wilton brand. You can buy it from their store and warehouse. There is also another brand that an instructor recommended. I think it's called ADM but not not 100 % sure.

I use fondant from Dawn foods which is called Decorrice.It smells like cotton candy and is really nice to work with.

Wilton is plain Yucky...

Satin ice is okay but I found the colored fondant to be a bit dry.

There are a few new Canadian websites that carry fondants now..Here is their links!!

I used to use Satin Ice, but now I use Golda's fondant. I order it or pick it up from Golda's Kitchen in Mississauga.

There is also a company in Ontario called Essence Cakes that makes a great fondant. Virgin Ice is a very nice fondant as well.

Me too. I like it, but find it expensive. Would love to find a cheaper way to buy it.

Why not make your own, so much cheaper, tastes way better and there are great recipes on this site. thumbs_up.gif

Hey!

Until recently I always used Virgin Ice. I really like the taste and how easy it is to work with. Plus you can buy it in larger quantities (which works out quite a bit cheaper). Recently I have been using Satin Ice (as there is now a supplier not too far from me). They are actually pretty similar in taste.

HTH,
Valerie.

I use Virgin Ice (from Bulk Barn) or McCall's for white, and I have used McCall's black and chocolate as well. The black was very soft - needed to mix with Gum Tex to get it firm enough to roll and transfer to cake - but the chocolate tastes like Tootsie Roll. MMMM.

For small amounts of colour, I've used the Wilton pre-coloured fondant in a pinch. It's a great red, yellow, blue and green. Haven't tried the pastels.

I think the only other fondant I've tasted was DecoIce (I think that's what it was). It tasted wonderful! But it can be a bit pricey. And I've been told they will not deliver to just anyone - you must be a registered place of business. Your home business is fine, so long as you are a registered, fully working business.

HTH.

I'm glad to see some Canadian websites listed, since I am hours and hours away from any craft stores. I can't really help the OP, I make my own fondant. The only other option up here is Wilton's, and I can't stand it!

I tried Virgin Ice and McCalls fondant and didn't like either one. Now I either make MMF or my own version of MFF and like them much better. It is also my way of getting a work out. LOL

Hi..I make MMF..It tastes yummy and very inexpensive to make.
Interesting to know that the Bulk store sells fondant. I didn't know that. You learn something everyday on this site! icon_smile.gif
