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 240F.  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.

 

TIP 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!

Creating Chocolate 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.
