i dont get it, i used before wilton fondant, and today i made a cake out of satin ice fondant and it is weird. The fondant has air bubbles and also rips very easy. Why is that?

Different fondants have different personalities. Personally i prefer Pettinice over SatinIce because even though it's eve more bubbly, it stretches so much better. Satin Ice rips easily and gets alligator skin.

Once you're used to working with one brand - then what ever you try seems weird. All fondants have to be worked with a little differently. That doesn't mean it's not worth the effort to switch and find out which one is best for you even though it's a little frustrating.

Good luck icon_biggrin.gif

Knead together 1/3 Wilton + 2/3 Satin Ice and you'll love not only the way it works, but the taste is great, too.

Also sometime Satin Ice isn't consistent with every batch. I've had really soft ones and really firm ones.
