Sugarpaste has many names, it also has many uses, colours and a few different flavours. Not all sugarpaste is created equal and it is a good idea to try different brands to find the one that works for you, taste can vary from brand to brand as well as the ease of use. This icing is very versatile, once you have kneaded it the icing becomes smooth and easy to colour, model, and emboss. You can use this icing to cover large cakes and use it as a base before you decorate, for cupcakes or for cookies. This can also be modelled but for fine models it is advised to use a little Tylo powder or gum tragacanth to harden it up a little. We will go into Sugarpaste in greater detail in a future post.
