Where are you located?



You don't need a permit, just pay the $25 a year for a membership.



But if you've got the Guild membership card, you don't need to get the McCall's membership card. AND you get discounts in lots of other places for just one membership fee, not several. (I was mistaken - you get a free McCall's membership, not a 10% discount. Discounts for many other places, though.)

I didn't know that! I'll have to remember when my membership expires.

I use Virgin ice a lot, my earlier cakes were with McCalls easy ice and I HATE it. It's much too soft for me but I do know some folks like it for that reason because if you do get a little mark it is easy to fix as it takes awhile to set.

Virgin Ice sets quickly so you can't really get away with taking a long time to cover or play around with it. I find it does elephant skin a bit around edges sometimes. Overall though, I love working with it because I can get a smooth finish without the tearing.

I have heard and seen great reviews on Satin Ice and I want to get some of that next time I am in the city.

I can't remember if it was Fondx that was the brand someone brought to a class and hated....she's a guild member and teacher. There was one that was awesome and it smelled like Cotton Candy. (maybe it was Fondarrific that was the bad one?)

Although this post is older, I just wanted to note that Petra's also carries Satin Ice and their prices are great. I buy the largest (10Kg I believe) and it is less than $60.00. It is about 1 block away from the McCalls wholesale store in Mississauga. I also buy my gumpaste their for a better price.

Hi there,

 

I guess not everyone read that you were looking for FONDX, (the best fondant out there!).  Flour confections I believe has started to carry it. But one of the other replies were correct. J Wilton.  I get my from the Edmonton Dist., (I think there is one out east too), and they sell it for $38.00 10lb. pail, which is the wholesale price, you get when you bring in a copy of your business license, and they do ship everywhere.  Obviously, if you have a J. Wilton out east it would be cheaper, but even with the shipping, it's less then ordering it from Flour Confections, or a US site, as the sell it at a retail price.  Hope this helps, and so glad someone else appreciates it, as I have tried Satin Ice, and that crap from the BULK BARN, and they all taste waxy and gross, but not FONDX :-)

 

Cheers, Cindy.

Hi there,

Golda's kitchen has Satin Ice in their stores. I am in Ontario-Oakville and there is a Goldas imn Mississauga! With tax the 10kg tub would be $90.00. Hope this helps.

Hello.  Sept 2013

   I just received my fondx from Icing inspirations  in Kitchener This product is superb I have been using fondant for years, for my wedding cakes, etc., Fondx is easy to roll, applies great, not dry, or soft..

for the taste, if you don't like it add some vanilla.   The cost is reasonable, the shipping is the killer.

   I will definitely purchase more.
