What does everyone think?
Too expensive - even with the 50% coupon. I might use it in a pinch.
I tried the red fondant a couple of weeks ago. It smelled really good, just like buttercream. It is a lot like Fondarific if you have ever worked with that. Its kinda expensive, nothing I would be buying for a complete wedding cake, but for little details or last minute cakes I would definetly pick it over the Wilton brand!
No way, no how. Even with a coupon it is far too expensive. Here in Canada at Michaels's a box of Cake Mix is $13.99. Just for the mix. For $13.99 I would expect Duff to come to my house and bake it for me.
PS. He can bring all the other ingredients that go in the mix while he is at it.
I used the chocolate brown fondant for my Guiness beer cake....it tastes good...but, hard to work with. It was very soft and kept tearing. I've heard it works well if mixed with other fondants.
I bought the black fondant. With the coupon it costs me $10 for 2 lbs. I thought that was a fair price - when I order it online it's about $8.00 plus shipping which costs a lot more. I also picked up a package of wires that were already shaped with curled ends for $2.50 (again with 50% coupon). I heard this fondant is Fondarific so I'm excited to try it. I've been unhappy with the Satin Ice lately. I like Wilton, but they only have very small packets of colored fondant.
i really want to know if his "graffiti" spray coloring is any good, but i'm too cheap to buy it!
I guess it's nice just to have some options...I wonder if his packaged buttercream is any good...
i would mix modeling chocolate with wilton , before i would buy it. Too expensive.
I would love to know about the graffiti spray too!
i have been using the duff fondant for a few cakes now and really like working with it so i guess it comes down to personal preference. i love the taste, it is better than any other i have tried, and find it goes on nice and thin so a little goes a long way. i find it more pliable as it doesn't dry hard like others.
i know it is expensive at michaels, but with the 40-50% off coupon it is actually one of the better deals around for me! that said i wouldn't ever pay for the cake mix even with the discount.
i keep waiting for the wires, but michaels hasn't seemed to stock them yet...
