Who lives in Ontario Canada and uses Satin Ice???? - Page 9

post #121 of 261
Hi all,

Happy to see so many from Ontario. I am originally from Sudbury, but have been in Barrie for 20 years. I have never used Satin icing, it is like fondant? I make marshmallow fondant as I find the taste of the wilton fondant just awful (rather like playdough).

Actually, I find the playdough tastes a bit better! icon_lol.gif

Satin Ice is fondant - great to work with and tastes good too.

I was in a Michael's in Whitby yesterday and asked the same thing as you, Christie. I was told there are no more paper coupons (although strangely there was a paper flyer with discount coupons off of framing??) and that they are on-line. I told her I couldn't find the coupon on-line, and she told me I had to register. I told her I had registered, and she said she had no explanation for why I can't access the on-line coupon. I can't imagine they lose money with these coupons (they don't from me - I buy even more when I have one, I'm sure!), so I don't know what's the problem with them - ?

I had registered for the e-flyer and now they email a weekly coupon download. I have still received the flyers with coupons in the local paper as well.

Well, it sounds like Alberta's the place to be! Double the Michael's coupons! Lucky you, cake-angel. How long after you registered for the e-flyer did it take to start getting the coupons (if you recall)?

I FINALLY found Goldas. They have GREAT stuff..I had my 4 year old with me so I couldn't spend much time in there. icon_sad.gif
I noticed that Goldas has their own fondant. Has anyone tried it? They also had dried fondant..any good?
post #128 of 261
I use Golda's fondant (white and chocolate so far) and like both of them. I was there yesterday and bought a TON more stuff - thankfully I live far enough away that I have to purposely make the trip or my bank account would be seriously low!

I noticed that Golda's made their own fondant and was hoping someone had tried it. I am planning a trip there soon myself, so I will pick up some and pass along news as to how it tastes and how well it works (in my opinion, of course!)

Thanks..I noticed it was quite a bit cheaper then the Satin Ice. I like the MMF but thought I may try it to have on hand just incase.. (I ALWAYS have a hard time making black fondant..so that may be the first colour I try)
I can't wait to go back WITHOUT my 4 year old! Hmmmm..when do the kids go back to school again??? icon_biggrin.gif

FYI - Golda's Kitchen is having a sale from today until next Wednesday for on-line orders. Haven't had time to check out the 30'ish pages of cake decorating items on sale.

Adding to the Michael's discussion we've had, I signed up for my coupons last week on-line and got my first one yesterday. It's a 50% off - celebrating Canada Day, I guess. Here's a link if you want to print it for yourself (hope this works!). It says they'll accept it in store, so there shouldn't be any problems.

i really like Mccalls i find very reasonable i bought a 5 pans for 30 something as well as 10 kilos ( 20lbs) of fondant for like 60$ very good if u ask me i bought a zillion different things and spent only over 100 it doesn depend on what u buy of course but still not bad.. i like golda's but a few of there things are a tad bit pricey for my liking. the fondant is decent but i like the McCall's brand. they also make a white chocolate fondant. oh but i also got a discount because i am a pastry student but still

OK - I did a road trip to both Golda's and McCall's warehouse today. I have only ordered from Golda's on-line. They have a new store that is very nice. I bought some Golda's fondant, which I haven't used before, and as soon as I use it, I'll post how it went. I love Satin Ice, so I hope it works up the same as that.

I also went to McCall's warehouse in Mississauga and was impressed with both the prices and the selection they had. Since I don't have a membership, I didn't buy anything, just looked around to see if a membership was worth it. If I lived closer and decorated more cakes than I do, I would think it's worth it. They do have their own fondant too (as has been mentioned before), but I didn't buy any because I wanted to try Golda's first, and I don't do enough fondant cakes to warrant buying too much of it all at once. I plan to buy some of McCall's fondant and try it too. I did find McCall's prices on most products about 25% cheaper than Golda's, but again, you need the membership to buy at the warehouse.

In all, I was glad to check out both places in person for the first time. I will go back again as soon as I can (it's a 2 hour drive, which is bad for convenience and good for my bank account!).
