homemade fondant recipe tastes and has texture of Satin Ice?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I LOVE how easy Satin is to work with. I had no problem rolling it out, draping it, coloring, nothing. it was like playing with playdough. We also liked how it tasted and the texture wasn't offensive or chewy (I had a thin layer of buttercream and a thin layer of satin ice).

But... I can't spend $14 on a tub of fondant every time I want to make such a cake! So, which fondant recipe is most like Satin ice?

Thanks!

I've never tried Satin Ice because I can't find it locally, and I'm too cheap to pay shipping, but I've been using Michelle Foster's fondant, and I LOVE it! It tastes wonderful and is very easy to make. It isn't very chewy on your cake either. You can adjust the flavorings if you want. My boys are 5 and 7, and they always ask for some when I'm using it. My youngest hates mmf, but they'll both just eat a piece plain!

Oh, haven't seen that recipe yet. How big of a batch does this make? Seems like a large batch.

I haven't tried Satin Ice either yet. I really want to but it is so hard to justify spending the money for it when I can make fondant cheaper at home. I really like Toba Garrett's fondant recipe. You definately should try it sometime! thumbs_up.gif

The recipe that Collette Peters has in her book is close but it doesnt always come out for you.
Rhonda's MMF is a pretty good recipe but it doesnt compare to Satin Ice.
I would just compensate your pricing to include the cost of it until someone finds one!!

I don't like the MMF either but I really like Toba Garret's. I find it easy to work with and you can change the flavors around to your liking.

I've never tried satin ice either and I have tried Toba Garrett's recipe and Michelle Foster's. I found Michelle Fosters to be awesome. I liked it much better than Toba Garrett's. It had just enough stretch and was super easy to work with. I was sooo excited when I made my first batch b/c I, too am too cheap to buy fondant and thought this was an excellent alternative.

Alana do you know how much her fondant will cover?
post #14 of 18
I'm not sure about how much it willl cover. The first time I made it was a half batch and the second time was a 1/4 batch. the half batch was use to cover 7 mini cakes that were 4 inches high and 4 inches wide. I only used about half of what I made. wait....... I just weighed what I have left from that batch and its about a pound so I'm guessing the full recipe is 4 lbs of icing. If you consult the wilton chart for covering cakes you could probably estimate how much cake 4 lbs of fondant will cover. I know different types of fondant cover differently (so I've read) but it will probably give you a ballpark.
