I am looking to buy fondant in 20 lb buckets and was wondering what brand is best. So if anyone can give me their opinion on the ones they use it would be most helpful because I don't want to waste my money. Thanks!
I use Albert Uster's Massa. Love that stuff. Have also used and liked chocopan and fondariffic....but go back to Massa every time.
SatinIce. Good price, easy to source, performs fine, tastes good.
leah_s, do you ever have any problems with SatinIce? I've read some posts where others say they think it's too soft. Do you only use it to cover cakes or do you also use it for modeling figures, making flowers, etc.? Thanks and thanks to the OP for asking this question!
I use Fondx mostly. It works fine for me and tastes good too.
I really don't make figures all the often and I make flowers (if I don't just buy them) out of gumpaste. So, yes SAtinIce for covering cakes only. I have not experienced the problems I've read about on here.
We use Fondarific all the time....People love eating the fondant, in addition to the cake, because of the flavors...
In the 10 lb tubs, they make buttercream, vanilla, and chocolate...If you call them, they may be able to make larger batches for you.
