Sugar Paste Icing
Although time consuming to make... it
is an item you can make and store in your refrigerator
for several months and use it as needed!
1 lb powdered sugar
5 oz. Water
1/2 tsp of your favorite extract flavoring
Put the powdered sugar,
water and extract into a heavy pan and heat on low,
stirring continuously, until the sugar dissolves.
Bring to a boil until your candy thermometer reaches
240ºF. Pour the hot syrup onto a cold wet
working surface or marble board and let it cool
slightly. Lift the edges of the syrup with
a metal spatula and fold towards the center.
Continue working around the syrup until the syrup
forms a dense mass. Now it should be cool
enough to work by hand. Knead like you would
bread dough until you have a smooth white paste.
Wrap and let cool completely before storing in the
fridge. To use... Break off a piece in the
size you need and place it in a bowl over a pan
of hot water and heat gently until the mixture is
the consistency of a thick cream. You may need to
add some water or more flavoring.
of The Week
Lettering Made Easy...
Trace the outline of your
cake pan onto a piece of wax paper - then cut around
the outline. Write or Trace your letters (if
you are doing a design on your cake be sure to place
the letters on the paper in the spot you want so
you don't loose your design) onto this paper and
gently lay over your frosted cake. Prick around
the letters with a toothpick - then remove the paper
and pipe your letters over the little holes in your
frosting. NOTE: Frosting should dry
before placing the wax paper on top. This
method also works for pictures/designs too!
Leaves for your Cake...
It is best to use real leaves that
have a shiny surface on them. Clean and dry
your leaves first.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler
(sometimes you can use a microwave - but be very
careful not to burn the chocolate).
Place a piece of wax paper down
and your leaf on the paper - then using a spoon
carefully coat the leaf with the chocolate.
Let cool completely and gently peel off the leaf.
