Today, I received my very first 20 lb bucket of Satin Ice for a cake I have this weekend and I was so surprised at how DE-LI-CIOUS was. I had heard that it was good, but had never tried it before. So thanks to all you CCer's for the tip. I'll kee you posted on how well I was able to cover my cake with it.

Until next time...

Hasta Luego!

It is on sale right now at a great deal for the 20lb. And I agree that it is delicious. I finally tried it about 6 months ago instead of making my own since I needed black, and fell in love with it! Now that is all I will use unless I just need a small amount and on short notice.

I like it too! Only wrap it well, it does dry out somewhat easily (for me at least)

I liked it too! It even smelled good. I needed a large quantity of black fondant and decided to try Satin Ice. It was great to work with and the black color stayed true for me. Will definitely use again!

I LOVE Satin Ice fondant!! If you have trouble with it drying out, rub in a small amount of Wilton Glycerin. That's the newest trick I have learned and it works like a charm!

I bought some other stuff too, but the 20lb bucket costs 46.00.

I pay $48 for a 20 lb. bucket at into the oven .com even with shipping it's under $60 and I've never waited more than 3 days from the time I order til the time it's at my door!

As far as keeping it from drying out, a trick I use is I grab the bag and pull it out of the bucket, give it a nice spin getting all the air out and then flip the whole thing over on top of the twisted open part of the bag. So the opening to the bag goes UNDER the whole ball of fondant into the bucket, then put the lid on the bucket.....never had even a tad bit of mine go dry!

Satin Ice is ok, the dark chocolate version is really good, but the best tasting fondant in my opinion is Fondarific. I won't use anything else now.
