Im getting married this November, and a friend of the family is making my cake. However I wanted fondant icing. Is there any place I can buy premade fondant?

Bakels makes a premade rolled fondant, Pettinice Rolled Fondant, comes in flavors and colors. Available at a bakery supply co.
This is an american product.

Shop around on the internet at bakery supply sites. Or you can get it at some local craft stores, but it's very expensive that way.

Regalice is another brand to look for.

It's not that hard to make, I think there are several recipes floating around on this site. Perhaps someone here can give you a link to the proper thread.

Alber Uster Imports
Massa Ticino (Rolled Fondant)
$38.00 a bucket (10-15#, I can't remember the weight)

It never fails. Good Luck.

Your right, the Massa Tocino is good, have you ever tried the Bakels? Takes colors better,less sweating,longer bench time without drying, not as good tasting, although I try to talk all my brides out of fondant. I personally feel it alters the taste and is usually a service nightmare.Bakels approx. $20.00 oh yea We also turn all our roses for b'day cakes from the bakels.
Leaving for San Diego in a couple of hours, any suggestions for bakeries or restaurants?

I just realized what I did. I certainly was not directing my fondant comments towards you. Fondant work can be very beautiful. We do alot of them and our brides are very happy. There are a few tricks ,rolled thin, crumbing etc. If your friend needs any help please feel free to ask.
Also if you have trouble buying the fondant without a resale #, E-mail me and I will ship you some,we have cases.
be back next fri.

I have never seen Bakels out here, so I can't offer an opinion.

Yeah, fondant does taste a bit nasty, especially when it is rolled too thick. But hey, it looks great and people enjoy it. I have never tried to flavor it. Can you just work in extracts?

Haven't been to San Diego in years. Enjoy the weather. I hear the exchange rate is pretty good too. :)
