So my girlfriend Buttacream advised me that she used AUI fondant on a cake about 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful. Tasted great, can be rolled thinner, and does not dry out at fast.

So I took to the web to do some research. There wasnt much out there on this fondant, but the few reviews that were available raved about it. I had to give it a try. I just went to picked up a tub at International Sugar Arts here in GA and couldnt wait to open the tub and sneak a taste. DEEEEEEELLLLIIICCIIIOOUUUSSS!

Just wanted to share.....I dont think SI is getting my money going forward unless it for the red and black dyed fondant.

I haven't heard about that fondant, and it is hard to find any fondant but si
here in ohio. I use global sugar arts for most of my fondant needs i don't know if they carry this one or not.
What is it in the cost comparison? I know I paid lots more for the fondarific
that I bought and I am so disapointed with it. sticky and colors are not good.. would rather use wilton which is cheaper than both fondarific and satain ice. Which I use all the time.
I bought a bundle of wilton fondant off hsn when they were clearing out the cake cricut for $13.00 it included 2 2# packs and a 5 pound pack. so I think that was a great deal. I plan using that up with my next few cakes and don't have a clue what i am going to do with the fondarific. Ordered colors and ended up tinting white for the cake instead of using there stuff.. so disapointed. any other information on this new fondant would be appreciated.

You can order on line and they ship free if you have a $300.00 order.Your first order they usually give you a 10% discount.Their Fondant is fantastic and their gumpaste is wonderful.Nick Lodge works and demos for them ,I think he possibly is in some sort of partnership with them. I order from Gaithersburg MD they have wonderful customer service.
Wanted to add the fondant is called Masa.

Maybe I got $300.00 because that is what my order was. Generally I have friends who are always ordering so someone just goes and picks it up.Robin is who I order through and she is wonderful.I am not a fondant lover but i can eat the massa it is really good .

I've been using AUI for 5 years; I love their product. Their raspberry marmalade is unbelievable. It is bakeproof, I use it in recipes and frostings (mix with swiss meringue bc....divine!), and my customers rave about it as a cake filling. I also love their gumpaste (they actually have a 5lb bucket), their vanilla bean products, and of course their chocolates. You cannot beat the swiss chocolate. It costs about 35 dollars for 11 lbs (which is less expensive than nestles chocolate chips), but it really enhances any chocolate recipe!! Highly highly reccomend!!

Wow. Sounds wonderful, but being a hobby baker, there's no way I could afford that price! I've had fairly good luck with the Satin Ice Buttercream Fondant, so I'll stick with that for now. Maybe one day I can try this product. Sounds awful good...
