I've checked and can't seem to find the 20lb Black Satin Ice. I can't use Chocolate and color it, their flavor is Lemon and the idea is very unappealing. I offered to make it, but my ingredients cost way more.
Has anyone seen this amount in Black? It has to be Satin ice...
According to the Satin Fine Foods website, the colors only come in 2 and 5 pound buckets.
I have never seen it over 5lb... is there a reason it can only be satin ice? there are other really good brands available.
That's odd...I saw that too, but it didin't make sense. How are people making black fondant wedding cakes, because the amount of food coloring it would take is beyond what I want to deal with.
bmarlow~ Do you have a specific brand you'd recommend? I can't use the brand that uses white chocolate (pettinice I think?). Have you used large quantities of black before?
buy four 5lb containers?
What about getting 2-10 lb buckets from fondarific? You can get either vanilla or buttercream flavored fondant in black in 10 lb buckets.
or 10 two-pound containers.
Jamm~ which company are you referring to?
I could order 4 5 lb buckets, I was just looking for the best buy I guess.
I've never used fondarific. I've just been very pleased with SI prices...
I was just being silly.
I've ordered SI from GSA before. Have you ever ordered from them? They had the best prices at the time. Haven't looked in a while though.
I see your point... if u buy in bigger qty....u get a cheaper price... but SI doesn't sell color in big buckets.... so I guess u can try another brand or buy multiples....
Google something like... 20 lbs black fondant... & see what comes up....
I needed 20 lbs of red fondant for my red russian cake and ended up buying 4 5lb buckets of it from GSA.
dalis4joe~ thanks. I did actually goggle and came up blank. I think I'll try again.
Jamm~ I read that as two 10lb NOT 10 two pounders...you ARE funny!
Cakesbysam.com has 5lbs for $20 and 20lb of Dark Chocolate for $61.
by far satin ice has the best color and best fondant to work with.
Do you happen to work for or sell Satin ice?
Satin Ice only comes in 2lb. and 5lb. I buy it all the time. Haven't seen it in 10 lb. tubs... is it available anywhere ?
Last night I tried dying chocolate fondant black, but it still took a long time and I ended up painting it still. I'm just going to order a bunch of 5 lb buckets of black, I haven't seen large buckets of black and I'm not sure I'd use it all in time before it spoiled. I'd make it, except it costs me almost twice as much to make because I use expensive ingredients.
Torchwood - I really like fondarific over satin ice and I believe they have it in 10lb buckets
don't know if anyone uses Fondax but I just recently started using it and I am loving it!
I really wish they would offer their colors in 20 lbs! I need chocolate, red, and black in a 20 lb. Those little 5 lb buckets are just too small!
I think the other way some decorators do huge cakes with black is by airbrushing. *shrug*
