For the past two weeks, i have been attend a novelty workshop at cake decorating central. It was so much fun and i learn that to model using fondant icing, we need to use cmc/gum. That was something new that i never knew! :p Now i can model my ribbons better and make funny figurings~
This is what i made at the workshop.
I've been looking high and low for a good modeling paste recipe and finally i found one and made some sugar roses with the recipe. This recipe is adapted from the women's weekly cookbook with the title celebration cakes.
I made my roses with these recipe so gals, give it a try!
2 teapoons gelatine
1 1/2 tablespoons of water
2 teaspoons glucose syrup
1 1/2 cups (240g) icing sugar , sifted
1. Sprinkle gelatin over the water in cup, stand cup in small saucepan of simmering water, stirring until gelatine is dissolve then add glucose.
2. Place half the icing sugar in medium bowl, stir in gelatine mixture. Gradually stir in remaining sugar, knead on surface dusted with icing sugar until smooth and elastic. Wrap tightly with cling wrap to prevent crack and drying out.
