About this deal

I was also working in very warm summer weather - when I tend to avoid using sugarpaste but I had no problems with it being too warm. Suitable for both covering and modelling - add Tylo Powder or Gum Tragacanth for a lovely flower modelling paste.

I had a bucket of Massa Ticino which was also softer than normal so I really think this is to do with the hot weather. The the icing survived perfectly, after a few hours sitting out of the fridge in the box, any condensation was gone and the cake looked perfect.Couture doesn't crack or craze (especially around corners) or form elephant skin if prepared correctly .

Sugar 78%, Glucose syrup, Palm kernel fat, water, Starch (potato), Glycerin (humectant), carboxymethyl cellulose, vanilla oil, Emulsifier: Polysorbate 80, Potassium sorbate, Citric acid, Flavouring. Sealed packs minimise the possibility of the paste forming a crust, so there's no longer any risk of little hard pieces of sugar being mixed in when kneaded. I've tried many different sugarpastes but this one I have now been using for the last year at least.

kg Couture White Fondant Icing Roll is made of high-quality fondant, which makes it both easy to work with and suitable for a wide number of applications, including wedding, anniversary, and birthday cakes. I have been using couture since getting a little free sample at cake international and I simply dont use anything else nowadays. PREPARATION - it is important to knead well before use to activate the gums for best performance - the ultra-fine icing sugar creates a 'dense' paste which, in cooler weather, may feel difficult to knead at first so if you find it a bit hard work you can warm slightly in a microwave (blitz for 10 seconds) prior to kneading. simply knead well to activate the natural gums and you'll quickly realise just how good this sugarpaste really is. It has a smooth, porcelain-like finish enabling the achievement of sharp edges, ideal for even finishing on taller cake tiers.My advice is stick with it as the extra effort is all worth it for the quality of finish this icing gives you. em>CAKE STUFF REPLY:  Hi Jennifer, many thanks for taking the trouble to leave a review.

It could be that a small mixing batch wasn't properly mixed and your block didn't have enough gum tragacanth and/or issues with hot weather. Couture is the perfect sugarpaste for wedding and high-end celebration cakes, where quality of finish means everything. This is THE BEST sugarpaste ever to work with, I usually dread covering my cakes because of the usual tearing/cracking at the edges etc. It comes ready to roll for maximum convenience, has a vibrant and smooth white finish, and is suitable for use by both professional bakers and cake decorators, and at home.

which I've experienced with a lot of other brands, but not any more, as this sugarpaste handles excellently because of its consistency, it's not too sticky, smells devine and tastes delicious without being overly sweet, please do not stop making this wonderful sugarpaste! We'll arrange replacements no problem at all for you as we'd be keen for you to experience Couture as it should be.
