Tried googling for BFS wholesale tonight and found not a lot. Anyone got a link for them for fondant and or any other supplier worth considering for some 30 x 12.5kg blocks?

I used to get mine from Viscount Grimsby,they used to price it at the same as Bako.

Cant find a weblink though as it was a couple of years ago and have used Bako since.

This has turned out more complex than I thought. Bako were determined to charge me £10-65. However with some perseverance I got it reduced to the £8-95

Ever the Scot! well done:)
Is there an equivalent Bako in the south, does anyone know- I have Googled - but nothing coming up. And is fondant really necessary- can an early syrup feed equate.
