Hi, I moved to South Africa last year. So I am struggling to find items that would normally be easy for me to run out and get in the USA.
The biggest one is Fondant.
So my question is this; if I can't find a place to purchase fondant, does anyone have a good recipe for it? It must be soft and not get hard.
What is your go to fondant?
Thanks for your help.
Hi KJithoo - welcome to SA. Which part of South Africa are you in?
Fondant is easily found in most areas. Normally is called Pettinince or rolled Fondant. Now Pick n Pay, Checkers and Spar stocks these too - but this is too expensive and you need to find a good baking supplies store rather.
Recently we also get Satin Ice in stores.
Thanks for the info. I am in the Durban area. Where are you?
Which stores are stocking Satin Ice? I have looked in Checkers and Spar but I have only seen mazipan or what they just call white icing. I have not seen fondant.
Do you know of a good bakery supply place in my area? I heard about a place called Bake A Ton. I have not checked it out yet. I saw it in an advert in this week.
Thanks again for all your help. It is greatly appreciated.
