Hi Everyone,

Just thought I'd let you know (if you don't already) that Hobby Lobby now carries 5# tubs of satin Ice for around $23.  I used a 40% coupon the other day and was thrilled that I paid only $15 for 5 lbs.  $3/lb is less than I have even found online for bulk rates.  Hope this helps some of you!

AI accidentally ordered satin ice instead of the decopac brand and was so upset, I almost cried. Lol satin ice tastes like Wilton fondant mixed with playdough and vanilla.

AGleggh. Just the stink alone is enough to put me off Satin Ice.

AI bought some satin ice too...and was surprised that I actually liked the taste. I am new to using fondant so I'm really not that particular yet. It did kind of smell like play dough though

Satin Ice issue aside, I'm so jealous of all of you people living in the mainland. No Hobby Lobby in Puerto Rico. Not even a Michaels. A couple of Walmarts, but apparently they didn't think people baked in this island, because their baking section is, like, "hey, we'll put this spatula here right next to a lonely bundt cake pan. Wait, you blinked! Now your in the bikes section."

 

It's okay, because it means I get to support our local mom and pop baking supply stores, but man. Every once in a while I'd love to hit a big sale. Or just find cute things for a dollar. I really miss Michaels. I even miss Jo-Ann, and that's saying something.

I'm sticking with homemade marshmallow fondant mixed with one cup of melted Merkins chocolate and accented with LorAn Cotton Candy flavoring.  :-)  Smoother than a baby's behind, luscious taste - no cracking or dryness and just the right amount of "stretch" to roll it thinner than most.  Oh and five pounds of MMF costs around $7.00.  Can't beat that.

AYes, I've heard, and from I can seen on the newspapers, things in PR are getting rough. But I know that cake decorating is huge over there,. Right?! I am from PR.

Can you tell me how do you mix the melted chocolate into the mmf...do you mix the melted chocolate in the melted marshmallows or ??

Morgan, would you mind sharing the recipe you use? I have tried several recipes with added chocolate and the texture has not been good. Thank you.

ASure! I use Rhonda's Ultimate MMF. I add maybe about 6/7 ounces of chocolate. If you are trying to get it super dark add cocoa powder instead.

There's really no "right" amount. That's just what I use.
