satin icing? - Page 2

Your welcome!
Yes, you can make regular flowers. It´s really just another kind of fondant. I would mix it with gumpaste because 100% fondant flowers are very delicate and can break easily.

You can add about 2 teaspoons of any clear extract. I use almond extract. You can taste it and see if you like it or add more.

When I make my fondant I cover the cake the same day. It works better this way for me.

Good luck!

Hi Gapi, thanks for recipe. Could you clarify something. You say sift the sugar & make a well, add the gelatin mixture, stir with wooden spoon. add the sugar till stickiness disapears. knead in the remaining sugar. Where does the extra sugar come from, do you reserve some before making the well? Sorry to be a nuisance.

Sorry. What I do is that I don´t pour all the sugar in case I don´t need it all. I do it gradually. First, I use a big bowl and add some sugar about (500 grs.) and add the gelatin mixture I mix it with a wooden spoon and pour more sugar until it´s not too sticky and then I pour all the mixture in the board and I keep adding the sugar. If you have more questions don´t hesitate.

Thanks Gapi,
I thought that was what you meant, but I just wanted to confirm.

Sorry, the thing is that eventhough I think my english is very good I´m not a native speaker and sometimes I might not express 100% correctly.

It's not shiny. Perhaps it's called Satin Ice because it is satiny soft and smooth to work with? Not shiny though.

I'm definitely going to buy the ingredients and try this one!

Let me know what you think. I wonder if the extra few TBS make it a bit more workable?

I know this is an old thread, but if I want to make the SI recipe, where would I find Glycerine and Glucose.  I been to several pharmacy and they look at me like I nuts when I tell them what the glycerine is for, apparently glycerine is only sold in suppository form. Every time I mention glucose they're not sure what I want so they show me a Glucose measuring kit or reader. Anyone have any idea where this is sold?
