I want to make a Sugar Paste Icing and the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of "liquid glucose" - is this corn syrup? If it isn't any suggestions as where I would find this liquid?
Thanks, Anna Marie
You can buy glucose from most cake supply places, but you can also use cornsyrup. I think it has just a tad less thickness than glucose, but it works.
i've done some reading, and found out we can sub corn syrup for glucose, vice versa. they are not the same, but are derived from the same source (corn).
corn syrup is almost non existence where i live, so i used glucose instead of corn syrup when making MFF, and it worked well.
I didn't know you could use corn syrup to substitute glucose. Glucose is on my list of things to buy, but now that I know you can use corn syrup, I'm concidering just using that instead to try making fondant. Is corn syrup better taste-wise? And since it's less thick, how do you make up for the consistency? Just add a little more powdered sugar? Or is there barely any difference?
i don't know abt corn syrup, as it's not easily available here, but i do know glucose is very thick, not that easy to spoon out of the container. but it worked for MFF. so i guess, it may work for other needs too...
