Renshaw's sugarpaste ready to roll icing is the ultimate cake maker’s tool. You can use it to decorate cakes of all kinds, cupcakes and cookies, to create models and decorations or use it in kids’ craft. The possibilities are endless. It is available in an unrivalled palette of 26 colours, which means that you can make anything from the purest four-tiered wedding cake to creepy Halloween cupcakes. Our fondant icing contains gum tragacanth which means it is extremely pliable and easy to work with. This allows you to mould and work with it to get the desired effect before it begins to harden up.
To get the best from Renshaw's sugarpaste icing we recommend kneading it on a hard, dry work surface before dusting the area with a light coating of icing sugar. Then grab your rolling pin and using firm, even pressure roll the icing out. Our recipe means that when you use the icing to cover a cake it will remain soft on the underside but will firm up on the top, which will allow for easy decorating on top. We think a thickness of 3 to 4mm makes for the ideal cake covering.
