what do ya'll normally pay for satin ice fondant??

i found it at my local cake supple store, and it was $75 for the big bucket of it, but i think that would maybe only cover one wedding cake?? it wasnt really that big! i thought that was so expensive!! so much easier just to make it myself, but it's good to know it's there if i get into a jam!

In my local cake stores, they sell 5# for about $20-$22, 20# for $80. I have found it on line for a little less than that (w/out tax too). I have covered a 5 tiered wedding cake, and a couple other smaller ones, and still have some left (maybe a couple pounds).

When I was buying straight from the manufacturer I was paying $3 - $3.25 per lbs...I can't remember exactly and I believe that included shipping. You had to buy a minimum of 40lbs, which wasn't a big deal because I was using so much.

cakes by allison- Do you use only Satin Ice on all your fondant covered cakes? I was just wondering because I've been using MMF and I'm looking for something new and your cakes are so neat and wonderful looking. Have you used other fondant besides the Satin Ice and how do they compare? Thank you so much and again your cakes are amazing.

Satin Ice Rolled Fondant, as low as $55 for 20#. Pfeil and Holing, from Long Island, NY. I do not know what the freight would be. They have a toll-free number somewhere on the site. Give them a call and they can quote you freight.

I love, love, love, love, love Satin Ice and buy it from a wholesaler here in Houston for $90 for 40 pounds (two 20 lb buckets). No shipping, just gas to drive over there. You can see if they have a location near you:

Wow, small world! icon_biggrin.gif

Here's where I got it:
Swiss Chalet Fine Foods, Inc.
7200 Wynnpark
Houston, Texas 77008-6030
Phone: (713) 868-9505
Fax: (713) 868-1172

They carry it under their own brand name, but I contacted Satin Ice directly to confirm that this is indeed their product, just under a different label. I've used a bunch of it and it's definitely Satin Ice.

Thanks for the info on where to get the Satin Ice locally.  Can a normal person buy from Swiss Chalet? or do you need a dba?
