Satin Ice for me too. Pink Cake Box, Cake Boss, and tons more famous decorators depend on Satin Ice. You can order it online, but it's also found in most cake supplies. I love working with it, and it really is tasty. I usually can get 5lbs for about $30, and Wilton is 5lbs for $20ish? Not too much difference.

Fondarific all the way. When you open up the bucket, you smell buttercream, not chemicals!

I would vote Satin Ice for taste + ease.. but for taste alone, I vote Fondarific/Duff. With a 40% off coupon for Michaels, Duffs is $12 for 2 lbs. I pay $13 locally for Satin Ice colors from an overpriced cake store, and $27 for 5lbs.

I love Satin ice!! If you don't need it right away you can order it from www.Globalsugarart.com You can get 5lbs for about $15.00. I get almost all of cake products from them. They are very reliable and they are pretty fast on shipping. thumbs_up.gifusaribbon.gif

They have great sale prices, but shipping is at least $10 for 5lbs.

I just tried fondariffic and have to say I wont be using satin ice anymore...I usually just use fondant for accents but its seems so easy to work with.

I vote fondariffic

I found Duff's black fondant to be very sticky and stretchy, compared to Satin Ice. I had a tough time working with it. I'm not sure if it was because of the color, or if it's just harder to work with.

I like Satin Ice WAY more than Wilton. Very easy to work with - very easy to work out bubbles and elephant skin - really is smooth as silk (or satin? LOL). I'm trying Fondex for grins, now I wish I"d tried Fondariffic! Glad I just ordered a small amount for some cake dummies and not a cake icon_smile.gif

All of the colors/flavors I have used are like that. I have used red, black and white (which is really more ivory than white**). That is why I said for all around, I would vote Satin Ice, because Duff's is sort of hard to use.. but is much better on the flavor.

**I think Fondarific makes a real white buttercream flavored fondant called wedding white, but the one in Duff's packaging is their standard white buttercream, which is ivoryish... kind of misleading since Duff's packaging shows it as white.

I vote for Satin Ice. I love how smooth and velvety it tastes.

BTW - you can order a "sample pack" from Choco-Pan for a really low price (something around $5?) - they have about 4 oz of their top 6 flavors/colors (including noire/chocolate, caramel, coffee, and white chocolate). Kind of nice to try a bit without paying for a 2-lb+ tub.
