I have been buying Satin Ice lately, because I just don't have time to make fondant from scratch and hassle with coloring it. I like the taste of Satin Ice and love that it's not as sticky as MMF. I'm having trouble covering cakes with it though. It always tears toward the bottom of the cake. Thus far I've been able to hide the rips and tears, but I hate that it's happening. Any tips to avoid this or answers as to why it's happening? I love the convenience of it, but am finding it difficult to work with.
i was having the same struggle with it; tearing, sticking, etc. THEN, i found FONDARIFIC!!!
i only use satin ice for small decorations now, since Fondarific is SO much easier to work with!! They are on the web at www.fondarific.com!!
i love it!

Same here. I LOVE Fondarific (especially the buttercream flavor) and the gals that work there! They're so sweet!
I improve the texture of my Satin Ice by using a 1/3 Wilton + 2/3 Satin Ice mixture. I get the same wonderful flavor with great workability. It also helps keep the cost reasonable.
