Satin Ice Fondant

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Has anyone used Satin Ice? How do you like it? I've been using the mmf recipe from the Wilton site and I want to try something else. I like the mmf, but I just can't get it plyable enough. I've watched how much sugar I've used each time, but I'm just not happy. I live in Southern California. Does anyone know if they sell Satin Ice here?

Here is a website that sells satin ice. I only have a couple of places that sell cake decorations here and they don't sell this. I have not yet tried it. LOL I think I need to master buttercream first.. good luck! oh by the way I am in Texas.

Satin Ice and Petinnice are both wonderful brands of fondant! They are easier to work with than MMF, they are "silkier" (is that even a word??) but cost a lot more!

Thanks for the help. I am in Fontana. I was looking for something different than Wilton and I heard this brand was good. I actually found a couple places near by that do sell Satin Ice and many other brands that I think I will give a try. I'm a beginner with fondant, but I just love working with it. That marshmallow fondant is just too finiky.
Thanks,
Melinda

Finally! A couple of people that actually like working with Pettinice and Satin Ice and admit it!!! And someone else who doesn't like the MM fondant--I though I was the only one!

Pettinice is great and I use it on the few cakes and many, many cookies I do. It's a first-rate product.

Looking for a full-time job, MrsMissey! This baking business is for the birds!

Just kidding (about it being for the birds). But I am itching to get back to a full-time job. The baking is great and I do it part-time and when I please. I love it like that. When I did it full-time in 2004 I wound up hating it. Long story short: I've been scouring the job sites and keeping away from the cake sites (well, visiting them a lot less) until I find a job.

Thanks for missing me!

Hey!! You are very close to me (I'm in Lucerne Valley near Victorville) and not far from ladycakes!! I have a bunch of satin ice in my cabinet.

We'll have to get together and play cakes! Are you going to try to come to the DOS?

I'm new to all of this. What is the DOS? Is it a cake retreat? I will look on ladycakes website. I'm a stay-at-home mom and am always looking for new friends and help with the cakes. I'm having a lot of fun with this website. You do get addicted. icon_razz.gif
