This icing is a joy to use and when modelling decorations, your pieces will dry just as you intended.
The variety of colours available will reduce your time required to make a cake. Colours can be mixed to produce other colours.
Tips for Using Satin Ice:
After removing Satin Ice from the pail, remove only the icing amount required and knead with your hands until it becomes pliable. i.e. similar to chewing gum, the gums in rolled fondant become more elastic and extendable once worked, this is why it is necessary to knead well before rolling out.
The addition of extra gum will make the icing more extendable, and will cause the product to dry faster. Ready-made Gum Paste (modeling paste) is available for this purpose and is ideal for the production of sugar flowers etc.
Seasonal climate temperature changes may require the icing to be softened or made stiffer. If you feel the need to stiffen the product, knead into the product some pure icing sugar. The addition of a few drops of glycerine to the fondant will soften the icing during the colder winter months, however once the product is stored at room temperature no additions or product changes should be necessary.
Any time Satin Ice remains open to the air it will dry, therefore it is very important that product storage is airtight. We recommend storing it in a plastic bag and then in its pail after use.
When kneading and rolling Satin Ice, do so on a smooth surface. The surface can be smeared with a shortening such as Solite. This prevents the icing from sticking to the rolling pin or work surface, and will help in keeping the icing moist. It is also preferred when working with chocolate or coloured product so that the colour isn't compromised by the addition of white icing sugar or corn flour (which can also be used)
Satin Ice may be rolled paper-thin and yet remain very easy to lift and handle. The average final thickness as a cake covering is approximately 4mm. The thickness of the icing will also depend on the cake height. On taller cakes the icing may be rolled out a little thicker.
