If you say last weeks Cake Challenge on the Food Network, do you know what that guy made the grasshopper's telescope out of? It was really cool and it looked like pulled sugar or something like that. It was shiny, looked like it had a marble effect and he had to put it under a heat lamp (I think that is what it was). I can't find a pic anywhere. When he was making it, it was stretchy and he was forming it over a foam cone by pulling it and wrapping it around. It was very cool!
Yes as you suspected it was pulled sugar.
Thank you! Is making pulled sugar hard?
Haven't tried it yet as I plan on studying with Ewald Notter in Orlando soon. (He is the King of sugar.)
If you want immediate questions answered Moydear77 should be able to help.
Thanks! I wish I could study under people.
Come to Alberta Trixyinaz and we'll teach you all you need to know.
Making pulled sugar isn't too hard. You just need the right equipment and a good introduction to the basic skills.
The biggest advantage is speed. You can whip out a cake topper in 20 minutes that's a real show stopper. Stacks of Ribbon etc that take days to make in gum paste take literally 10 minutes in pulled sugar.
