I found a place that sells fondant locally. 20 pounds for just $50.

I guess no more shipping charges for me!

That's awesome.........I pay just under $60.00 with shipping for a 20lb. bucket of satin ice. I would love to be able to just run and grab it somewhere anytime I needed to though!

Hey, shouldn't you be spending your down time posting more tutorials???!!
icon_lol.gif Actually, I haven't taken the opportunity to say thanks for those! You're pretty awesome for taking the time to do that and CCers are forever indebted to you..
And congrats on the fondant. What kind do you use?
Happy Caking!

UGH! I know what you mean. I buy Fondarific and it comes all the way from Georgia (I live in Colorado). Sure would love to avoid those shipping charges!

KHalsted, that's right. Where do you get your fondant? I used to get mines at cooksdream.com for around $60 already including shipping but it takes days to get here.

Diane, hehe. No problem, the people who made the tutorials are the ones who should be thanked for. I'm actually posting additional tutorials whenever I find something new or something that I forgot to put.

Oh and I use Satin Ice btw but I also use Fondx and Jennifer Dontz's. I'd love to have a grab of those Fondarific but it is so pricey for my budget.

I order at www.intotheoven.com I think it's around $48.60 if I remember correctly for the 20lb. bucket........I live in Ohio and I got a notice like 2 hrs. after I ordered it that it had been shipped and I picked the slowest shipping they offered (5-12 days I think) and it was at my doorstep 2 days later!!!

HELLO.... I HAVE A QUESTION WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOME MADE FONDANT AND THE ONE YOU BUY, AND WHICH ONE IS GOOD, AND IF IT IS WORTH TO BUY IT OR TO MAKE...THANK YOU...

I'm actually making a cake this weekend. I hope it turns out fine.

I prefer buying fondant because it's more consistent every time plus I don't have to go through making it.

Here are some storebought I'd recommend.

Chocopan
Fondx
Satin Ice

I get mine from intotheoven.com too. They are very reasonable in shipping costs too.
