I just bought some Satin Ice Fondant for the first time. I usually make MMF but wanted to use premade fondant for my sister's wedding cake. I heard a lot of good things about Satin Ice so I bought a small batch of the vanilla Ivory fondant to test it out first. It has a weird chemical smell and taste. Is this normal? Will it go away after I put it on the cake?
It has a weird chemical smell and taste
Return it to the store and get them to check it out.
Commercial Rolled Fondant does not taste exactly like homemade Rolled Fondant: and neither tastes like marshmallow fondant ..
It's probsably fine, but do let the store take a look (and smell). The SatinIce Buttercream Flavor is the best thing they make.
I think Satin Ice smells like Play Dough. Personally, I don't like that smell so I only use it when I need certain colors. Haven't tried their buttercream flavor.
I ordered it from GSA, so I would have to send it back (don't know if I can do that). I have a very powerful sense of smell so I am not sure if it is just me. I had other people smell it and they say it is fine. Leah_s you say the buttercream flavor is good, maybe I will order that and just color it ivory. Thanks everyone
i couldnt stand the smell of it when i first started using it, now im used to it. it doesnt taste too good on its own but on a cake it tastes fine.
I like the smell and taste of their vanilla fondant. Doesn't smell like chemicals to me. Everyone I serve it to seems to like it. I've had no complaints. Maybe you got a bad batch or something.
I have found the same thing with the Satin Ice when you first open the bucket, but I have found that it tastes just fine.
I agree with the smell but at the end it tastes good... Have you ever smelled Wilton's fondant now that's chemicals!!!
