"Rose Garland mould"
06 September 2013
There are many reasons why sugarpaste sticks to moulds. One is that it is too soft. If using large amounts of paste add 1 teasp of gum powder to 200 grms sugar paste. Knead it well and leave on one side for about twenty minutes, covered so it doesnt dry out. For smaller amounts of paste just put a pinch of the powder in and knead well. Moulds should be dusted with either cornflour, icing sugar or tiny amount of veg fat rubbed in the mould. You can also get a lovely effect by brushing edible shimmer powder into the mould. Remove excess paste from back of mould and turn out.
