Hi! I was in Micheal's art and Crafts today and saw that Duff has a line of Cake products now. Has anybody tried them. I was curious about the fondant. I don't like the Wilton and as much as I like the Satin Ice I can only get it online which is costly with shipping.

Many have tried it and besides being WAY overpriced..It is not worth the price....

I have not tried it but saw it for the first time 2 days ago and I was not impressed. I could not believe that 2lbs of fondant was $20! And the cake mixes made me chuckle icon_razz.gif

I guess if you put a famous face on it, you can over charge for it...

The only thing that I tried (with a coupon, of course) is the silver aerosol spray. It looks really cute sprayed on top of buttercream iced cupcakes. Way easier than painting with luster dust, or trying to sprinkle just the right amount of dust on.

I have used the black fondant. It was easy to work and it tasted ok.

His fondant is Fondarific, which I love. It's easy to work with and my family likes the taste of it over Satin Ice. However, it is not good for making figures or anything you need to dry hard. I still use Satin Ice for those types of things. While the price before the coupon is $20, once you use the coupon, I find it to be cheaper than my local cake supply shop or ordering at an even cheaper price online -then adding the cost of shipping. I normally buy it in larger buckets, but for a pinch or small project, I think it's perfect.

I needed red for my nieces cake and since it was the main covering, I didn't want to use the red Satin Ice I had on hand since she likes Fondarific better. Hubby went to Michaels with 50% coupon in hand and picked up a tub of red. Quick, cheaper than cake supply store, didn't have to wait on shipping. Easy peasy!!

As for the cake mix - I haven't seen it, but there's no way I would touch it, even with a coupon!

thanks for yalls feed back. With a coupon its not too bad. I was wondering about taste. Anything is better than wilton. There isnt a cake store here that sell the Satin Ice , well one and it is the Lg 20 lb or larger and I dont need that much. Ten or more Dollars shipping I cant afford either.

oh they also had packs of designs for the fondant for $4.99 for 2. They are only like 4 x 6 but they had brick, cobblestone and 2 other designs. That was nice to see.

I've tried the black also.. out of desperation. It was good but expensive.... very expensive.
