Can I buy Fondant already made?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi I am new to this site and I really love cake making. Give me a reason and I will bake away. I am so tired of frosting and have been watching the food network where they use fondant, they indicate ordering the stuff. Can anyone point me in the right direction to order premade fondant? Thank you. icon_smile.gif

Welcome to Cake Central. You certainly can order fondant, ready to use.

Satin Ice is a good one- you can order it through the link to Global sugar Arts, in this site at a discount.

There are several recipes to make your own, but I recommend you try ready made, so you know how it is supposed feel and handle. then when you make it yourself, you will know when it is right. It is easy to add too much powdered sugar to recipes, and end up with dry cracking fondant.

Wilton is available in most local stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and even Walmart. It is easy to use for practice- but it doesn't taste good at all.

Oh yes!

i have tried many brands chocopan, fondx, I just got samples of that new fondarific stuff, and satin ice.

Here are some sites to check out:

globalsugarart.com
choco-pan.com
fondarific.com (not sure about this one)
countrykitchensa.com
cakedeco.com

Take a look at these sites and see what is available and the prices. I love to work with fondant myself. It is certainly worth a try to see if it is a medium you enjoy.

I agree about the Wilton fondant great for practice and dummies not so good to eat.

Good luck with it! icon_smile.gif

I just finished using Satin Ice for the first time and it tastes pretty good! It was easy to use and it worked great. I made the mermaid cake in my photos with it. I ordered it from Global Sugar Art and it came extremely fast!! I was very satisfied with their service. If you are desperate for fondant yes you can get the wilton one but just like Joann said it tastes terrible!!!

Satin Ice is the best, Wilton is the worst. I order mine from www.decopac.com as they have a shipping cap ($27!!) and I'm in Alaska.

Sorry but not true... that fondx is $3.39 per pound ($33.90 for 10#) and I get my satin ice for $2.80 per pound. Both costs are before shipping.

Decopac requires a tax id#. If she's a home baker, like me, I think that caljava online is her best option. But thanks for the info.
(not to mention that I made that post last *August* and prices may very well have changed since then)
