I seen this at the ICES convention and I tasted it...............kinda like a starburst,I was intrigued until.....................I went over to the dummy they had on display and touched it(I know Im like a child icon_lol.gif ) it was very sticky!!

Im a Satin Ice girl and I refridgerate all my fondant cakes............the only time they are sticky is when I pull them out of the fridge....then they dry out.

So Im not sure how that stuff would work for me.

Still, I'm sending out a challenge for somebody to come up with a recipe for fondant that uses something like Starbursts, I think a candy infused homemade fondant would rock!

i bought some of it at the ICES convention this summer because i wanted to try any fodant that I could get my hands on. I have been saving it for a special cake because is was more expensive, but the flavor is great. I finally used it last night and I do not know if it was me, but I had issues with it. I love in FL so it is alway humid but that shouldn't have had anything to do with the issues as the company is based in the south and they stated that it worked well in the humidity.

Last night it get sticking to my non-stick rolling mat and kept streching an showed more imperfections than the SI that I use normally. I also had issues with cutouts keeping their shape as i put them on the cake. I dont want to be overly negative because I want everbody to get their own opinions of the product. I still have some so I will be trying it again and I am hoping for better results. I do love the flavors as did all of my co-workers today but i think I will only really use in the future if people ask for it.
Hopefully more people will post about as I want as many other reviews of it as possible.

Ok, I have to admit that I bought a 2lb container of the cherry fondarific at the ICES convention. Well since then my daughter and I have slowly whittled away eating pieces of it (yes, eating fondant) it tastes like cherry tootsie rolls and at first I thought I was the only one nibbling away at it until I realized it was smaller each time I looked icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif DD admitted to sneaking it too!! Tastes great, but I have to say that I did try to do some cut outs with it, and it seems very very soft and did not hold its shape. I was wondering if it was just because it was so heavily flavored. I got the sample pak and it included little packets of six different flavors (just a strip rolled up) it arrived via mail and most were melting when I opened the container. Made me wonder what would happen on a cake on a warm day, as the oils separated from the rest of the fondant and when I put it in the refrig it looked like crisco around the fondant when it cooled. Still tasted good, but not certain of humidity issues. Wondering what everyone else thinks/has experienced

I just ordered some samples. I posted a note on Paypal asking for the flavors I wanted to try. I still have yet to try Satin Ice. I'll have to buy some of that and compare the two. I did just try RBC - The taste was great, but it was shiny.

I just tried the black Fondarific - it's actually fantastic! Worth the price.

I bought a bunch of it at the ICES Convention and finally used it tonight for my niece's birthday cake. Didn't have much trouble with it but I'm waiting until tomorrow to make cutouts to place on the cake.

My question is...should I be refrigerating my fondarific covered cakes? I made 2 tiers out of cake with Cake Boss Buttercream frosting and one using a Cream Cheese Icing. I'm squeamish about leaving the tiers out since both icings use butter and/or cream cheese. I've refrigerated fondant covered cakes (didn't use fondarific) before and had no trouble with them later but I've got limited fridge space and would like to leave these cakes on the counter under proper covers.

Whatchya'll say to this?

I'm intrigued by this product. It's only $10 more for a 5 lb. container than that disgusting, inedible Wilton fondant. Granted, we can use coupons for Wilton fondant, but I'd be willing to try this if it tastes GOOD and works well. I think it would be worth it if it's that good.

I was helping a friend yesterday cover some cakes with fondant for a wedding today and we were using Satin Ice. I don't like the taste of it and it was getting elephant skin and air bubbles really badly. I picked up a piece to place on one of the layers and the whole thing got elephant skin. Had to re-roll it about three times and finally it was so bad we scrapped the fondant and just went with b/c. Never had that happen with another fondant before. And the air bubbles - oh Lord! We were poke out air bubbles like crazy. This was the plain vanilla Satin Ice - no extra coloring or anything else added - just right out of a brand new container. Ugh!

The bride originally wanted b/c but my friend talked her into fondant because it's so much smoother looking, so my friend felt very confident that the bride wouldn't mind not having the fondant and she was right - the bride was thrilled with the cake!

In doing a Google search on Fondarrific, I came across this and thought I'd share it.

I have used the fondarific wedding white (not bright white) I used so much less because it rolls out thinner. Covered a 4 tier cake without any problems. It doesn't dry out like the other stuff. I bought it when it was on sale after christmas 52.00 for 10Lbs. I used less than 5 lbs for the entire cake. Smells good, taste good and goes on really nice.
