Hi Barbismom, I prefer Pettinice over satin ice when covering cakes. Satin ice tends to have alot of air bubbles and the finish is never smooth enough for me (maybe I’m not patient enough with it). Pettinice is vegan, I just checked – although not sure if they use raw sugar just in case you look out for that too. I’ve never tried Fondx or Fondarific, but based on Jenniffer’s suggestion, I’m going to try it myself too. Pettinice only comes in white (I think) and I hate coloring fondant. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
