Who lives in Ontario Canada and uses Satin Ice???? - Page 5

post #61 of 260
Hello again London and Ontario fellow CCers!! icon_biggrin.gif For some reason I did not get any more notices that people were replying to this tread??? icon_cool.gif I am glad I checked back, there seems to be a good bunch of us here, we should meet for coffee and trade secrets!!!!

Nancy, I see you took the city course, I just finished the beginner level, who was your instructor? I was planning on taking the intermediate on Tuesday nights starting in September...but I must say I am learning a ton from this website so I am not sure now.

I have never heard of Fluffo, I will have to grab some next time I am at the valu-mart. Has anyone used sweetex or alpine shortening and if so can you buy it in Ontario or do I have to go the the US?? I am going to try to go to St. Thomas tomorrow to pick up some fondant and I think i will ask them about the hi-ratio shortening.

Well I better put the kids to bed!!! Glad to meet you all! thumbs_up.gif

Eileen-my instructor was Donna

I just went to Oshawa on the weekend and when we went thru TO, I actually saw the sign for Golda's Kitchen . It's on this side of Missisauga,you can see the it's sign right close to the road. I have to go back that way for my holidays and think I'll make a stop. icon_biggrin.gif

Funny the cake gods must be on my side as just a few stores down is the Harley Davidson store for my BF to go to also!

btw Eileen and others I would be into meeting for a coffee anytime!

For those who are around London, St. Thomas area. I used the Dawn fondant I got at Scoops & Cakes in St. Thomas and it was very easy to work with and tastes just like cotton candy YUMMY

I live in Brooklin (East Whitby) and I am trying to get Satin Ice as well. Right now I drive all the way to Mississauga to get Choco Pan, but I wanted to try something different.

I am in Lindsay, which is eastern Ontario. I have in-laws in Brooklin and my father-in-law works in Whitby (though he lives in Lindsay). My folks are in Peterborough. Small world.

As I've mentioned, I order my Satin Ice on-line from Golda's. I don't make a lot of fondant cakes, so while it is a bit more money than I'd prefer to spend, for the small number of cakes on which I use fondant, it's OK for me to do that. Once I'm off work for the summer, I can see myself on a day trip to Toronto and an in-person visit to Golda's.

i absolutely love that i replied to this thread!! i sometimes felt like an outsider not being from the states so it's nice to see so many from ontario-i'd love to get to golda's as i'm close to TO-i'm from collingwood and there is nothing here but bulk barn-if i want micheal's i have to travel to barrie (hard to do when i don't have a car!!) i use the virgin ice and maybe cuz i haven't tried anything else i LOVE it!! if it gets sticky just add a sprinkle of icing sugar, if it dries out while using it, add a bit of shortening. i really wish we could get together and pick brains (we have a lot of talent here). look forward to getting to know you all more icon_smile.gif

oh and to add a bit of history...i first learned to decorated cakes about 10 years ago at Tim Horton's (yes, they did once sell cakes) it was just basic BC and flowers then the black forest kind- i loved it so much that i started buying the wilton yearbooks ( i think some date back to '96) i've pretty much tweeked(sp?) my skills through those books and in the last 2 years i've developed even farther and now that i found cc i've made leaps and bounds-love using fondant!! i'm a very creative and visual learner and this site it like overload of ideas for me (my orders definately do not keep up with what i want to test out) lol can't wait to read more about my fellow decorators!!

Hey there! Cambridge,Ontario here! I have and do go to Klara Johnson's, but before you head to Cambridge for the store, think twice! Klara herself is a wealth of knowledge and extremely helpful! unfortunatley, her stock is lacking! I've gone doen a few times thinking that I would be able to get specialty things and accesories, no such luck! I usually travel into McCall's in Mississauga.
Nice to see so many Ontarian's!

Hey is there is anyone in the East end who wants to take a trip to "Goulda's" we should plan a "car pool!" With the price of gas always going up. It is so nice to be in touch with other Ontarionians!!

I don't know if I'm in the right spot for car pooling! But I'd love to meet up at Golda's, never been!
Let me know!

That would be fun! My schedule is a little crazy for the summer, but let me know if/when anything gets planned and I'll try to make it. There are a number of restaurants and coffee shops nearby - we could meet for lunch!

Sounds like fun...My only problem is we only have one vehicle between me and my BF,and he works just out of town and I walk to work...but hey who knows..

I see there's a few here in London,and would easily meet you's here someday!
