Rae.... yeh you're right.. I pay about 3.50/lb for SI..... I did price the Fondarific online....pretty $$$$$. For those prices I agree, it should roll itself and apply itself. I'm only out $5/6 if its not that good. I have had no problems with SI.

I often order in bulk at the ICES Convention directly from the supplier. They discount to start with and the shipping is free.

If I need more, I like f o n d a n t s o u r c e . c o m (eliminate spaces) for their shipping cost and customer service.

I purchased the Duff brand here at Michael's as I needed a darker blue in a hurry. Here in Canada it was $26 for the equivalent of 3lbs, before the coupon. bloody ridiculous. What bothered me more was that the color, though marked "Royal Blue" was actually more of a turquoise once I opened the container. I had to spend my time coloring the stuff after I had paid a ridiculous price to get the correct color to start with. Never again!

I just ordered the blue SI from Global Sugar Art and it too is more of a turquoise! A bit bothered as I am in Hawaii and shipping is outrageous! In my research for fondant, Global had better shipping than fondantsource, but with the 10% coupon code, it comes out just a bit cheaper than Globals in the end. Will consider ordering from fondantsource next time to save a few bucks.

If anyone has any info on where to buy fondant in hawaii, please let me know. thanks

I had the same problem when i lived in Alaska. Do you know someone in the states that could buy it and ship it cheaper? I'd be happy to help you out on this if it makes a significant difference for you.

I was back at Michael's here in st. Albert and checked again - $29 for 2 lbs!!! Yes, I liked working with it, but even with a 40% off coupon that is $9 a pound! There is a Canadian supplier that I order Satin Ice from, but that still works out to $6 a pound or so. I don't have a friend in the States to order through - kakesbykitty, perhaps we should chat!!

There's a local cake supply that sells Satin Ice for easily twice (plus tax) the $$$ that I just bought on f0ndants0urce... THANKS for the lead Rae!!! I about choked when I saw what they were charging (the local place) vs what I paid for last week's order to GSA. It's good to have options!
I love Duff, but I'm not paying extra for his mug to be on the container... He was using Satin Ice, maybe they let him do a side line to bump business a little? Or maybe the Fondariffic folks got to him and made a better licensing deal...? I love working w/SI so I'm not changing.
Thanks again y'all! Cake Central folks rock!!!

I have the same issue. Here in BC my local supply store sells 2lb SI for $16. Michael's doesn't carry it. Where do you order your supplies from? I'm always looking for tips on Cdn suppliers.

Thanks!
