1. Marbled covering
Marbled covering

Create various shades of grey sugarpaste with Bridal White, Dove Grey and Tuxedo Black Fairtrade Sugarpaste, then roll each colour into a sausage. Gather the rolls and twist them together along their length several times before rolling out the marbled sugarpaste to cover your cake.

2. Flexible geometrics

Use the Geometric Cubes or Geometric Floral Flexi-Ice Mats with Flexi-Ice Instant Mix to produce fabulously flexible sugar designs with a modern aesthetic.

3. Sparkling gems

Pour melted Ready-Tempered Isomalt into silicone moulds to make clear crystals in a variety of vibrant colours. Use single gems for a glamourous final touch or build them up to create a stunning geode effect.
