Direct from the Simi Cakes booth at the Florida ICES Mini Classes event at the Sheraton Orlando North, we bring you a demonstration by Sidney Galpern as she adds a flame to her sugar sculpture using an iDesigns™ print from Icing Images®.
You will need:
- Blow Torch
- iDesign pattern printed on a Premium Icing Sheet™
- Simi Isomalt
- Silicone Bowl
- Silicone Mat
- Simi Flex Forms
Arrange the Flex Forms in an abstract shape that will fit into the sculpture.
Microwave the Isomalt for 30 seconds and swirl it in the bowl to distribute the heat and help eliminate air bubbles. Wait for the bubbles to pop first so you don’t transfer them to your sugar piece.
Pour the Isomalt it straight on to the icing sheet. Be very careful because the Isomalt is about 300 degrees. Pour a thin layer – just enough to cover the bottom. The Isomalt is going to make the design really pop – it makes them look pretty and glassy.
Allow the sugar to cool for about 20 – 25 minutes.
And here is the sculpture with this new flame added.
