Duff's (Ace of Cakes) fondant???

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So I'm at Michael's today and they just got in a whole line of Duff's products (I'm sure in other parts of the country this stuff has been out awhile). Which look really funny next to the Wilton stuff. You know...his stuff is all "cool", etc. Anyway, he has alot of fondant in various flavors. I thought maybe if I needed some I would try it instead of ordering the Satin Ice and paying shipping.

But WHOA!!! His fondant is $19.99 for 2lbs. I just started ordering Satin Ice and I paid $8.90 for 2lbs and even with shipping it's still way cheaper. (I'm only ordering small amounts since I'm just learning to really decorate). I mean there are coupons and all, but only for one product so it would still be really expensive!

Has anyone used his fondant? I'm just curious if it's really awesome or something since it's so pricey. Or if it's just priced for someone will be impressed with a celebrity and have no idea that it's expensive???

He did have a number of fairly inexpensive tools (like impression mats & such) that I might get. And if I wasn't learning to decorate cakes, his "tattoo" edible imagines might be fun!

The Micheal's store here hasn't reset either so we don't have any of the new cool stuff either icon_sad.gif

That's interesting considering that he said in the Food Network magazine that fondant wasn't for eating, just to keep the cake moist. $19.99 for 2 lbs is pretty expensive for that!

His fondant is either Satin Ice or Fondarific with his name/label on it. I can't remember which it is for sure, but it's one of them.

The Duff fondant in Michael's is Fondarific. The fondant he endorses thru Deco Pac is Satin Ice.

Time to hoard those coupons icon_lol.gif

I noticed the Duff stuff at our Michael's on Saturday. Anyone tried his cake mixes yet? I'm interested in that since I heard several folks at a cake convention talk about how nasty his cakes tasted and they were like eating dry cornbread. I might buy a pack just to see for myself.

I actually find it rather funny that his face is plastered all over the colored fondant when on one of his episodes, he had NO IDEA that fondant could be purchased pre-colored...

I would only buy it in an emergency and with a coupon.

His cake mixes are $7.99 a box icon_eek.gif

He had some neat things like the wires and impression mats, but the pans have curved edges (just like Wilton's) and the tips are not any different just more expensive.

I was at Michaels tonight and noticed the Duff stuff too. Nice to know it is there if I am in a pinch, but still expensive. I am curious to know though what his colored icings taste like. I almost bought a tube/pack tonight, it was only $2.99, but if I came home with one more thing from Michaels I am sure my hubby would have gone over the edge. icon_smile.gif
