Plastic Icing


Last weekend I decided to attempt this plastic icing lark . Here is my impressions of working with this stuff.
1. It very quickly gets sticky and icky to work with
2. Don’t give it to the kids to play with- see point one
3. Be patient with the stuff- put it to side if it gets too sticky and do something else.
4. Putting it in the fridge does not let it set quicker- just give the stuff some time.
5. Don’t use fresh cake- it crumbles while you are working with it- use a day old cake at least.
5. It’s difficult to mould- see my pics
6. You need to tidy the stuff up afterwards- wipe the icing sugar of- it doesn’t just dust of- unless I’m doing something wrong.

I'm going to retry it this weekend- wish me luck- lol

Here is a pic of my attempts

Hello there dear fellow "plastic icing" fiddler. Nice to know i'm not the only one having a "whopping" time trying to ice a cake. I went one step further and even tried to make my own marzipan. Very brittle but we all loved eating the bits that were left over. At the end of a battle I think I made it, the cake is finished, but my oh my it was a sticky mess by the time I finished. I really need some cake decorating lessons I'll tell you. Maybe one of my new year goals. Learn Cake Decorating. Good luck trying, I hope you get there. Just persevere my fellow friend.

Having a wonderful 2009!
