It's fine, and the individual 1kg bags may suit some people, but you could get 25kg (inc delivery) for the same price from Chocolate Falls or similar.
no it doesn'tYes, it contains such things as caking agents, just put it to one side for a couple of days and see how hard it gets!
no it doesn't
contains nothing but powdered sugar glucose syrup and water
Exactly the same as the pricey 'bee fondant' most suppliers peddle at a premium
#33Belgosuc is the same company that makes Invertbee syrup. It's also amusing to know that they also produce fondabee fondant which is exactly the same stuff as the Belgofondant but with a picture of a bee on the box but at at twenty odd quid a pop!!
Although if you go direct to the agents, Wyefield apiaries, it's more or less not far off a normal price.
Sounds like candipoline. 0.5g of pollen per kilo and hey presto that's double the price... You could just piss in the snow for similar nutritional valueYes, they put a spoonful of invert into it and everyone then says 'ooooh, it's all invert fondant' when in reality it's just bog standard baker's fondant with a drop of fairy dust but three or four times the cost.
Sugar products are like steel stock - they just go for a supplier with the cheapest price. Belgosuc are primarily a cake maker supplier, the invert and bee products are just a sideline.Anyone noticed the Bako fondant is made by Belgosuc.
Just bought a ton pallet of Superfine fondant @ £2.49 a box less than Bako own brand, from Bako.
What? a hundred pounds a box? it was £12.00 to £14.00 a 12.5 kilo box in 2011, I was getting it for a tenner a box in 2012 and it kept getting progressively cheaper because the price is governed by international sugar prices. £7.00 a box two years ago, cheaper if you bought a pallet load but it's crept up slightly since.Bako was £8 a kilo 25 years ago .
Sure ol misery guts said Bako was £8 12.5 kilo 25 years ago .What? a hundred pounds a box? it was £12.00 to £14.00 a 12.5 kilo box in 2011, I was getting it for a tenner a box in 2012 and it kept getting progressively cheaper because the price is governed by international sugar prices. £7.00 a box two years ago, cheaper if you bought a pallet load but it's crept up slightly since.
My bees are delighted with the Choco Falls fondant, but just be aware that it is noticeably softer than the fondant I had been using previously (SimonTheBeekeeper / BFP). I think this is because the water content is high teens rather than low teens. This is fine as far as I am concerned (easier for them to take down perhaps) but it does increase the risk of it sagging down between frames if not supported properly. Only an issue if you feed fondant directly on the frame tops, but just wanted to mention it.Ordered it Friday received it today and yes contains only sugar, glucose syrup and water ! £11 per 12.5 kilo .
