3.0 out of 5 stars The Good and the Bad, April 21, 2011
I've worked with different types of fondants and if you are reading reviews because you are new to the Fondant Cake process, here are some things to keep in mind:
1. Satin Ice is Yummier than most
2. Satin Ice is harder to work with than many
3. Satin Ice shouldn't be you're first ;)

I started my Fondanting adventures using Wilton's, a brand that makes most professional cake decorators cringe. It isn't yummy, but it is forgiving. If you are new to cake-ing I would recommend using Wilton's the first few times to get the hang of things before moving to the more finicky fondants. If you start by using this fondant, you may be Freudianly misspronouncing it in a loud voice: "I hate you SATAN Ice!!" Really, fondant tears may stain your cheeks.

Fondants I've used in order of easiest to work with:
1. Wilton's
2. Elite by Fondx
3. Satin Ice
4. Homemade Marshmallow

Fondant's I've worked with in order of yummieness:
1. Homemade Marshmallow
2. Elite by Fondx
3. Satin Ice
4. (distantly) Wilton's

I would recommend the tutorial on Satin Ice website, really great:
[...]

If you are only buying Satin Ice to sculpt edible animals, than this would be a great one. For first time cake coverings, try Wilton's, get things down then come back to Satin Ice.

Thanks for reading and good luck on your cake adventures!

Thank you for the honest critique of Satin Ice fondant. I am very new to making and using fondant and this post was an eye opener!

I have used homemade marshmallow for years, went on to Wilton due to time restraints, hated the flavor, but okay to deal with, and just now got Satin Ice in a local store - LOVED the consistency and flavor, I was floored! It was so much easier to color and it cut down my "dye" time in half. I am going to make a cake for my nephew in a couple of weeks, he wants BLUE, so I am planning on purchasing the blue. Now I am a little scared. However, I have worked with fondant for a long time, I may just watch the tutorial and also take my chances. Great review!!!
