post #16 of 30
I love Satin Ice. It's all I use for fondant. And I have all the colors also!

I Love Satin Ice. I use to make my own mmf but found that coloring it made it break and it was just inconsistent. Now I use Satin Ice and have not had any problems at all.

I use nothing but Satin Ice and love it. I will have to say that it is a little bit softer than wilton brand but I work a little powdered sugar into it and knead it. The wilton brand is not as tasty as the satin ice in my opinion. As far as figures etc. are concerned, I use it either by itself or add a little tylose to it. For more fragile things like my numbers on top of cakes I use gumpaste only. I only buy the satin ice in black, white, red and chocolate brown. I have bought the pink before and found that it tasted like the dye they used to color it. All the others I use taste wonderful. Good luck!

I recently bought Satin Ice and loved the way it smelled, tasted and worked, So I think I will be using it alot. I also just got a sample pack of fonderific, from Cakes4u.com and it is great they have some funky flavors, the sample is $6.99 with free shipping

For gumpaste flowers I use Ron Ben-Israel's recipe that I learned in culinary school. For figures, numbers, and other toppers, I just use Satin Ice with CMC mixed in.

<---wonders if anyone uses REAL ingredients anymore--sugar fruit nuts, cream, butter etc--instead of flavoring chemical cream from a bucket with pudding & jello and calling it "mousse"

I tried cakes4u.com but nothing came up. Am I missing something?
Thank you!

I always make my own gumpaste using the wilton recipe and it works great. It doesn't get grainy like the pre-packaged stuff does. I color my MMF in the process of making it (if I need the wholebatch one color that is). I add my gel color to my marshmallows right before melting. Seems to work great for me.

loucinda - Thank you so much for the advice! I am definitely going to try that tomorrow, I think I saw the gumtex at hobby lobby today icon_smile.gif About how much do you think I should add to the MMF and do I add it while kneading it or while heating the marshmallows up?

Thank you so much!

You are welcome! I use about 1 teaspoon of gumtex/tylose to about 1 cup (eyeball it) of fondant. I just knead it in - be careful when you do though, it likes to poof up at you!

A hint I learned in my Wilton class....put the gumtex and fondant in a plastic bag and seal lightly....THEN do your kneading! The gumtex is very 'poofy' and hard to work in at first! thumbs_up.gif

I like Satin Ice.. but I do have issues w/ elephant skin or tearing occasionally. This is probably because i'm inexperienced with fondant opposed to it being an issue of the product.

I also think it's pretty cheap. I just bought a 20 gallon bucket for 49 bucks. That's a little over 2 bucks a pound. CHEAP in my opinion for a quality product that you don't have to make. Time is money!

Ooh! $49, where did you find it at? I am wanting to experiment with everything before I settle on one thing, I have only been doing this for about 4 months so i'm still working on everything.

That isn't too bad, about $2.50/lb. (MMF costs me about .75/lb. - but that is not taking into account the time making it - I have it down pretty good, but it still requires time)

Leahs - can you give some approximations on about how much a 20 lb. bucket will cover?
