I have been reading some old posts about the product now I'm not sure if I want to try if on a wedding cake. One poster said that after the cake was kept in the fridge and taken out to serve the fondant started sweating and got sticky. Has anyone else had this problem? Because of work I have to make the cake the day before the wedding and I don't want to open the fridge to a ruined cake before delivery. I didn't see anything on their website about not being able to store cakes in the fridge. The cake will be filled with a vanilla mousse so it has to be kept cold. TIA

Maybe it was just me, but I had trouble with Fondarific. It was too soft and "stretchy" and hard to work with. I loved the flavors and colors, especially the ivory which tastes awesome. Even so, I went back to Satin Ice.
I try not to refrigerate. Here in Florida the humidity is so high. When you take anything out of the fridge or freezer, it pulls moisture from the air and actually gets wet even in air conditioning. I am always afraid the colors will run. I do freeze decorated cookies in airtight containers, but let them come to room temperature before I open the container.
I just received the new Massa fondant in Amethyst. The color is absolutely beautiful and doesn't fade. I watched a Nicholas Lodge demo using this fondant and loved it. I can hardly wait to use it.

I recently started using fondarific and to me, it was as stretchy as Satin Ice and I've had to relearn how to cover cakes. However, I can roll it 1/16" and never worry about tearing or elephant. If you are making fondant flowers or something, I recommend adding a little tylose or gumtex because it doesn't dry as fast or as hard as Satin ice. I do want to try the Massa by Albert Uster though.

Is Massa much more expensive? And is there a way to wacth Nicolas Lodge demo's online?

Thanks

If you aren't using a filling/frosting that needs refrigeration just leave it out on the counter.

Or put your cake in a sealed box while in the frig. Should help prevent the moisture from getting to it.

I would really like to try Fondarific. I've looked at their website and Google and can't seem to find out where, other than ordering it directly from Fondarific.com, I can buy it. Any advice? Thanks! icon_smile.gif

I just ordered my first fondarific Tuesday afternoon and it arrived this morning. Hopefully I will be giving it a try soon. I ordered directly from the company and they were super nice. Plus for me the shipping was less than $9 for 25 lbs of the stuff. On another note I do LOVE Massa.
