You can order online from sugarcraft.om, for example or if you have a cake supply store locally, you can sometimes get brands other than Wilton. Two good ones are Pettinice or my favorite Satin Ice!

MrsMissey~ Those fondants you mentioned.. are they ready to use? I haven't seen them at my cake supply store. I'll ask about them tomorrow when I stop by. I want to make MMF but I never seem to have time~

Yeppers, they are ready to use. All you do is knead them for a couple of minutes to warm/soften and then starting using!

Hey tina! i actually tried MMF on my mother in laws cake.. the disaster one.. lol. it worked out pretty good, I only made 1/2 of the ingrediants and it made quite a bit...
i put it on the cake decorated it and i kept mine in the fridge and it still tasted great when we ate it!

yup, mmf is the way to go. it is sooo much more tasty and inexpensive to make. if you keep your hands and work area covered with powdered sugar, you won't have a problem with sticking. icon_lol.gif

How does the satin ice fondant taste? Is it much better than Wilton's brand?

momof3- it was easy I just melted my marshmellows in the microwave like directions stated. And while that was melting i dumped my cup of 10x in a bowl ...I made a well in the middle of the suger dumped the marshmellow and rolled it around the bowl till all the suger was absorbed.(kinda like making biscuts.)since the suger is what sticks to the outside of the ball ist not that sticky....and it working it self in....I just rolled it in the suger until it was just right...but with this method not that long...

I just wanted to say MeToo! By the time I get one order in, I've already made a list for my next order. I know some have been put off by the shipping but the estimated shipping is almost always higher than the actual shipping (this is what your charged). The estimated shipping to me is sometimes as much as $5-7 more than what I end up being charged. I get my stuff fast too...usually in 3 days and that's standard shipping. Great when you need something fast.
