I don't really like fondarific for cakes, it doesn't set, it isn't true white although it tastes better. I also never would use satinice on its own however it does have some good qualities. I use Bakels mixed with satinice and it works fabulous together.

Ok I used the Fondarific to cover my rose and lace cake this week. There's an upside and a downside IMO.
The upside is that it was brilliant in the lace mold and very much like the lovely workability of modeling chocolate. Secondly the taste was mild and almost non existent on the cake.
The downside was that I had a difficult time covering the cake, and wished I had a bucket of Satin Ice type fondant for workability, or even my homemade fondant works better. No elasticity in the Fondarific, it felt clunky.
