Good bye Satin Ice, I'm sorry, but you've changed

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 

I've used Satin Ice for about 4 years. And the last six, twenty lb buckets I've gotten were too soft and a pain to use. And adding color to it has become a nightmare. A suspicious person might think they want to sell more of their more expensive pre-colored fondants. It also gets more bubbles in it than it used to and still cracks.

 

I'm sick of trying to work with this sticky goo. And I'd think it would impossible for a beginner.

 

I'm going to go back to Pettinice, it's pretty soft, but at least it doesn't separate and crack.

Vent over :grin: . I'll probably start a new thread, but if anyone knows which wholesalers carry Pettinice, I'd love to hear.

I couldn't agree with you more. I don't do a lot of fondant covered cakes so I do not go through as many 20lbs buckets, but the last two have been horrible to work with. It is so soft and sticky, and by the time I have gotten all the air bubbles out as I roll it, the stuff is ready to start cracking!

I quit using SI over a year ago.  Constantly got elephant skin.  I make MMF now.  Cheaper and I like the taste much better.  ;-D

DO you have a Restaurant Depot?

I thought it was just me lately. I opened a new bucket a couple cakes ago, and it's such a hassle! Sticky &overly stretchy. My cakes have bubbled more than ever. I thought I kept screwing up every step of the way. (Of course, I could possibly be screwing up, but this bucket is definitely different.

Yay! I hope they have it here, too! That's less than I've been paying for Satin Ice and Pettinice is better fondant- at least it was then. I switched to Satin Ice because it was cheaper back then, but the price has gone up and up...

Yeah I saw it there (keep wanting to say I seen but I know Shanter will get me! lol) but had never heard about it. I was using MMF and SI but wasn't really happy with either. So I loked into the Petinice..doesn't seem many on here use it. Figured I'd give it a go and I like it. I am not done trying different brands tho!
