If you meant Satin Ice, yes, it does taste better than Wilton's fondant.

Satin Ice fondant has a fantastic vanilla aroma and a soft vanilla marshmellow taste. Works well and it doesn't leave a bad taste at all.

I use Satin Ice all the time. My kids love it..I have to hide the container.
Wilton is awful I think it gives fondant a bad name. Try the chocolate Satin Ice tastes like a icon_biggrin.gif tootsie roll

Satin Ice holds up fantastically on cakes. Here on CC it is the most popular commercial brand of fondant, although there are several other brands that people like (just NOT Wilton! Wilton is not fondant, it's tapedshut.gif !) You can refrigerate a cake covered with SI with no ill effects. It is also vegan so that can come in handy too.

I wouldn't worry about its taste or performance; give it a try!

Oh wow, I like this thread a lot hehehe... I have been using wilton fondant (yugh) and just recently ordered a couple lbs of satin ice from global sugar aart to try it, I totally agree, Love the texture, the smell and of course I pinched off a piece of each color and tasted them mmm much better!

BUT here is my issue, as always$$ I'm just beggining and I can get a 50 % off michaels coupon and get 5 lbs of wilton white fondant for $10! Satin Ice? Got 2 lbs for $9 + shipping (about $12) !! argh Is there a website or place that sells Satin Ice for a more reasonable price?? please tell me someone!! LOL

I get my Satin Ice to last longer by mixing it with my MMF. It's easy to handle, and it still has that great vanilla-ee flavor.

Give it a whirl- you might like it!

Satin Ice ain't cheap, that is true, but I personally would never use Wilton on a cake, other than for 50/50 gumpaste/fondant figures that are to dry out and not be eaten. That's why I make MMF, and buy Satin Ice only for special needs (like when I needed vegetarian fondant, or something in a dark color). 2lbs of SI for only $12 is not that bad actually; usually with shipping I find it to be around $18, and my local cake supply store carries it but it's $18 full retail, plus tax icon_cry.gif. Is making the fondant completely out of the question? Michele Foster's recipe is excellent.

For something that is going to be all over your cake, I wouldn't use the cr$ppy stuff, it will only hurt your business.

ooh I just read artsywest's post, what a great idea - a good compromise.

OMG, thanks for the encouragement lol I guess the $$ isn't really my only problem,n it's kind of a long story, but me n my family are vegetarians (not vegans though) so gelatin (marshmellows) are out of the question, don't consume them n can't really sell it either...
Sooooo, I've had 3 failed attempts at making my own fondant with veggie gelatin (it works real well to make jello) but the fondant come out with a texture thats impossible to work with! the veggie gel just doesnt do the job at all! So I'm kinda stuck, don't know what to do...I get really frustrated when the homemade fondant is a total waste of time and supplies!! icon_mad.gif

I don't think being vegetarian makes it a long story. It's pretty simple: you're vegetarian so gelatin/marshmallows won't work, no other explanation needed thumbs_up.gif. K2cakes mentions a recipe that works, in this thread http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-603860-html

p.s. technically you should be thanking CC for blocking certain names icon_wink.gif even though that's not why they do it.

I found Satin Ice at Into the Oven.....about $46.00 for 20 lbs. cheapest I've found.
The shipping is the killer....but it's so worth it.....
