I wonder if it would be cheaper for me to UPS it to you than to order it? I get 15# for $40

Holy cow - thank you! That is a generosity I will not soon forget!  I'd hate for you to be having to bother with that, though. Let me try these other fondants I posted about on another thread - Swiss Chalet's house brand and BakeMark's BakeSense (house brand). They are pretty cheap. If I get lucky enough, one of them may really be Pettinice relabled.

 

The silver lining to all this is is I may be paying a lot less for fondant from now on!  :D

You are too kind, I will. :)  Let me try these other ones first - they are extremely cheap!

I looked at GSA and the Fondarific is more expensive than Satin Ice. I really don't want to rework my numbers and raise prices. Especially when the kids eating my cakes peel off the fondant anyway.
Is there a better (read: cheaper) place for Fondarific? I would try Pettinice too. I'm not familiar with either fondant, I'm just tired of the mess of Satin Ice. I would love a sample, but I'm not sure if anyone does that anymore.

I use fondarific (hobby baker) and I buy mine thru Amazon Prime. Free delivery and even cheaper if you have it on repeat order. You can choose every month, every other month, every third month, etc.

@sweetcakegirl- good to know about how thin Fondarific can be rolled. I roll Satin Ice stupid thin though already, so I'm not sure if it'll save me anything in the long run. I guess I'll just have to give it a try, and rework my numbers to compensate for the cost difference.
Thanks!

Pam, it's not just rolling thin. I didn't believe interject, but I really do use less fondarific than i did satin ice.

One 5 pounds bucket covered the 5 tier cake with gold flowers in my gallery. They are dummies, but dummies don't use up less than cake!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I tried satin ice. Problems problems. But I'll say this! I like using that one in molds way better than MMF. I have a 5 lb bucket I'm kind of stuck with right now. It's been great for that.

If it don't make dollars, then it doesn't make sense ;)

Have you tried Fondx or Fondx Elite? It's by far my favorite fondant! Taste great and rolls out easily. GSA sells it but you can get it directly from the manufacturer CALJAVA ONLINE (www.caljavaonline.com) and they always have great sales. I always get their 10lb Virgin White and if I need color I love getting their S*xy Pink. They have a variety of colors and I have yet experienced any fading. Definitely worth a try! and They ship internationally as well!

Uh-oh.....I am a beginner and have only used MMF but find it to be unpredictable.  After reading a lot of the different threads in this forum I ordered Satin Ice to make my grand daughter's Princess Sofia themed 3 tier birthday cake.  Now I see this thread and I hope I haven't made a huge mistake...ugh!  Making three cakes for the party, one for the 3 y.o. and her sister will be turning one, so regular cake and a smash cake. Thought the pre-made SI would make it easier for me.  Panic has set in!!! Maybe I will make a big batch of MMF for back up.

Don't panic. If it's too soft for you just knead in some powdered sugar. No matter what your granddaughter will love it and think it's the awesomest cake ever.
