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.
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.
Designer Metallic Lustre Dust Food Colours add a stylish sheen to sugar work and can be made into a paint by adding a few drops of clear alcohol, e.g. vodka or gin, then used to cover a whole cake tier.
Achieve a perfectly chiselled look as the starting point of your design. Create sharp, straight edges on sugarpaste-covered cakes with easy-to-use Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers.
