I was just watching the cupcake challenge in Food Network and one of the contestants was making flowers in a technique called "Magyfleurs". I looked it up since I never heard about it before and it seems $$$. icon_surprised.gif And there I was thinking I'd like to try it out someday. HAHAHAHA

Anyways, has anyone used it before? It seems interesting.

I have some! My sweet SIL gave me a set for my bday because she was so enamored of them. That was in the summer and I haven't used them yet icon_surprised.gif She bought them from a seller on ebay... they're not bronze as the original ones are but some type of metal. They are SO expensive... even the knock off ones. I wouldn't have ever bought them for myself. I'd love to play around w/ them w/ hot sugar... anyone have a recipe to use for that? If I get a chance to do it I'll post some pics of them.

This is from pastrychef:

"These classic forms have been used by pastry chef's and confectioner's for years to create elegant edible chocolate and poured sugar flowers.

The process is simple:
Chill bronze Magic Flowers in a bowl of ice water, until the shapes are very cold.
Prepare as required tempered Chocolate or Poured Sugar.
Remove a form from the chilled water and wipe-off any excess water with a clean cloth. Then dip form into the liquid chocolate or poured sugar, then allow this thin layer to solidify on the form. Then simply pop-off this thin layer shape and repeat.
Assemble the finished pieces using additional chocolate or poured sugar, apply flowers as accents to decorative cakes, plated desserts and showpieces."

I was thinking of trying this also...I don't see what the difference would be.

Do you think you just use like the hard candy recipe for the sugar?
