I have been making mmf since I started using fondant in my decorating. Since I have started up my own business and have a tax id to purchase wholesale, I got some Satin Ice and WHOLLY CANNOLI! That stuff is great to work with! I love it! I don't know if I will ever make MMF again!

Those of you who buy wholesale, where do you buy with good prices and affordable shipping. I am in Plano TX. Anyone know if there is someplace close by?

I didn't know Wilton had a new fondant. How does it compare in taste to the more expensive fondants?

I love Satin Ice too. I get mine from Decopac (They relabel the tubs with their name but it IS Satin Ice). Shipping is a flat rate all the time - which is a BIG deal when you are in Alaska!

I've worked with satin ice and really liked it too. I've tried mmf but I'm not a fan. It covers cakes great but I don't like it for decorations( even with tylose & added sugar). Satin ice is expensive so i tried Mary fosters fondant recipe that I found on this site. LOVED IT! Worked great to cover & model....very similar to satin ice. HTH

I was also making my own fondant until I tasted Fondx...LOVE it. You may want to try it out. It has a marshmallow based flavor.

The new wilton tastes ALOT better. I've been using a mixer of duff and wilton to get a more pilable fondant... I forgot who makes the duff fondant.. I know its one of the big brands

I also like Fondx. Less expensive than other brands and easy to work with. I tried Satin Ice and didn't like it at all. It dries out quickly and you also end up with what others call elephant skin. I also tried Fondarific they have great flavors but it is extremely pricey. I plan to stick with Fondx from now on.

I really like FondX. It performs beautifully and tastes very similar to Satin Ice. There is a wholesale bakery supply place near my home that sells it at wholesale + tax. You can purchase from
CalJavaonline.com OR http://shop.sweetwise.com/fondx-virgin-white-10.html

Both companies are currently having a sale on 10 lb. tubs of FondX.
