My cake store is having a special on Pettinice right now...15 pounds for 39 dollars (normally 60). I almost exclusively use MMF but I have a few big things coming up and the idea of making so much MMF is daunting. I'v heard good things about pettinice. What do you think? Good deal? Is it a decent flavor?

One more random thing...can I make the white pettinice chocolate by adding cocoa powder or something or is that a mess waiting to happen?

I am not sure about the pricing since I am in a different country but that is the only fondant I use and have no trouble with it.

Have never added chocolate, I don't think it would mix well with it becuase it would not blend but again, I have never done it.

I've used it a few times. I think it tastes like marshmallows. It has a good texture and rolls out nicely.

Also from Australia - if Pettinice is Bakels and the same as ours - then it is the PREFERRED FONDANT for most Australian Cake Decoraters

They make a Chocolate version here and it is YUMMO !

I think it rolls out nice, has a nice taste initially...but leaves a nasty aftertaste in my mouth. I like fondarific better, no aftertaste. haven't tried satin ice or chocopan.
