What products are good to buy premade like Frosting, Fillings, Cakes, ECT...

 

I perfer to make everything homemade, but I was told that somethings are better to get premade.

ACommercial premade fondant - consistent, saves time (time is definitely money) and comes in colors.

Hi,

 

I think the main PRE-MADE products necessary in the Cake are

-Fondant

-Filling

-Frosting

-Cupcakes(If needed)

 

etc...

And the best Fondant if i get chance to select then i will suggest "GLOBAL SUGAR ART CO.".

Where do you get that all Pre-made and does it taste good?

I love the Hero fruit jams for cake fillings and the Hero or the Delipaste compounds to add to SMBC for different flavors. There is too much inconsistency in fresh or frozen fruit to cook down to make fillings...these concentrated fruit products are the way to go IMO.  I used to use the Dawn (only brand that I liked) filling in 2 lb sleeves, but the local cake store I got them from closed for a bit.  I switched to the European imports and i'm not sure if i'll go back.  the flavor is just so great.

I was getting the Dawn sleeves at Pat's Cake and Party in Tucson.  Now I am mostly doing commercial food service ordering or online. (though i do hear that the store has reopened in a new location).
