I enjoy decorating my cakes with unusual elements and using different techniques. This is a new form of sugar art that I have started using.
Pastillage is porous and dries more rigid and faster than the other edible modeling options.With pastillage, you must work very quickly but the end result is the most sturdy of the sugarcraft mediums. It dries the most rigid of all. It will also take on the least amount of humidity from surrounding features (such as buttercream.)
This "Lightweight" version is for simple things like fence post, or other things that do not have to bear any weight. The photo here shows a poinsetta done with the Lightweight Pastillage. And I am posting a cake I did using Pastillage as a fence. See the Heavy Duty Section for Structural Pastillage & follow same instructions. I have seen structures like a miniature White House built with the Heavy Duty version...No, I haven't built that yet!! LOL
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"
