Sugar Paste

Sugar Paste Urban Taupe

The Sugar Paste Urban Taupe is one of the supporting colours from the Colour of the Year range. When used together, Urban Taupe makes Honey Gold more natural and calm. Although the cake decorating industry is usually characterised by loud, primary colours, we are going to see these greyish shades take the cake world by storm in 2023 too.

FunCakes sugar paste is flexible, smooth and easy to use because of its fine structure and malleability. Thanks to the satin finish FunCakes sugar paste is perfect for covering a cake neatly and creating sharp edges.

Preparation of Sugar Paste Urban Taupe

1

Let the sugar paste come to ambient temperature.

2

Knead the sugar paste firmly until it is smooth and elastic.

3

Dust the work surface with a bit of icing sugar or Magic Roll-Out Powder and roll out the sugar paste with a rolling pin to an even circle of 2-3 mm thickness.

Are there still small cracks visible on the edges when the sugar paste is rolled out? Knead again firmly until the edges are completely smooth when rolling out. Then the sugar paste is ready for use.

4

Turn the sugar paste a quarter to prevent sticking.

5

Cover your cake with the sugar paste or cut out shapes.

Tip! Do you use the sugar paste to cover your cake? Make sure to cover your cake with a thin layer of buttercream first.

FunCakes sugar paste is soft, pliable and hardens completely after processing. Thanks to its great forgivibilty the sugar paste is suitable for both the beginner and the professional. The sugar paste has a delicious creamy vanilla flavour and is available in no less than 40 colours! Can’t find the specific colour you are looking for? The FunCakes sugar paste can be easily coloured with the FunCakes colourings. For the best result, wrap the sugar paste in plastic after colouring and let it rest for at least an hour. It will then develop a deeper colour. Knead again firmly afterwards and roll out for further use.

Do you wish to cut out shapes from the sugar paste, than you are sure of neat, clean and sharp cut-outs. And did you know you can also model with FunCakes sugar paste? Create fun shapes and figures to decorate your cake with! To do so add one full teaspoon of FunCakes CMC-Tylo Powder to 250g of sugar paste and if necessary a bit of water. Knead well before use and roll out on a thin layer of icing sugar or Magic Roll-Out Powder.

To cover a round Ø20cm cake, you will need approximately 500g of sugar paste. For other quantities, check our quantity table.
