I've tried making my own fondant but haven't had 100% success with the consistency. I know many of you use Satin Ice so I wanted to give it a try but wanted to know where is the cheapest place to purchase it.

Thanks, Ruht icon_smile.gif

I just bought some from the bakers kitchen online. The actual price was like a dollar more than GSA, but the shipping was about $5 less per tub for me. I saved about $10 and it arrived quickly.

Just bought a 20lb tub from intotheoven.com and it was $46.00 + $16.00 shipping but it arrived 2 days later...fast service and the cheapest I've found!

You can buy it from me, either in shop or I ship. I also charge actual shipping.

Wow that still isn't too cheap huh? How many cakes does 20lbs cover. Like does it do a 10-8-6? Thanks for any information.

I've done a 6,8,10, and 12 inch square and probably had about 8 lbs left over. All from the 20 lb bucket.

Wow that's not too bad then, I never can get it thin enough without it ripping. Also , what do you all use to roll out something as big to cover a 12" ?

A very large fondant roller and muscles till they ache! LOL I powder the surface well with cornstarch too. Just do the same as for the smaller layers.

You can try fondant source as well (AKA jesters). I think they still offer 10% if you enter "cakecentral" in the coupon code.

Thanks for all the tips, it's still quite expensive so I don't know if it's worth purshasing. I do the MMF and my problem is that it is either too sticky or it rips if I roll out thin with the MMF it's kind of hit or miss. I'm quite jelous I see so many perfectly beautiful MMF covered cakes, I just don't know how to get to that perfect consistency any suggestions????

If it's too sticky you may not have kneaded in enough powdered sugar in. Also, I think it's best if you roll your fondant on the thicker side (1/4") when your first doing this and then once you get the hang of it you can think it out some (I wouldn't make it any thinner than an 1/8" though).
