It absorbs the icing colour gel without it getting sticky. It’s very light and rolls out so beautifully. The only downside is-it dries so quickly. When I needed to do a little fixing on the fondant, I saw that I couldn’t do it anymore as it started to crack. That con part can be avoided next time and it can’t change the high satisfaction level I get from using Satin Ice. I’m only a hobby cake maker and I think I will make more cakes so buying in this packaging is economical as well. It is my first time using this brand and so far, this is highly recommended. From now on, this will be the brand that I buy.
