what is it that the professional cake artists are using when they are freeze glueing decorations onto the cake like on the cake contest tv shows? It looks like a areosal can. Does anyone know what they use for that ?

It sprays cold air. They usually use it on chocolate or hot sugar to cool it off fast to attach pieces.

Apparently cold air is also really expensive...wow!

That is where people getting high really screwed us!!! icon_biggrin.gif Back in the day, you could totally turn one of those compressed air keyboard cleaning cans upside down and it was perfect cold spray (although I have no idea if it was food safe but it was somewhat common to use them a few years ago)... then people found some way to get high off of it. Now they add a bittergent to it that gives everything it touches a seriously nasty bitter taste. So we we all have to by the expensive stuff... unless you are making a dummy cake, then you can still use a standard compressed air can turned upside down.

pastrychef.com is overpriced for some things. The freeze spray costs half that on Chef Rubber:

I love Chef Rubber... I get TONS of stuff from them.

Thank you all so much !! that really helps !! I'm doing the castle cake with the plastic turrets but the last time I did -- it took a half hour of my holding the turrets half way in the fridge to get the candy melt to cool enough to keep the turrets in place.

And I suppose like most sites you have to have a business with a tax ID number before you can order from Chef Rubber. Is that the case with this company?

Thanks

FANTASTIC! It's about time that we can find a place where hobby bakers can order from other than Global Sugar.

Thanks

I've been singing the praises of Chef Rubber on this site for ages... just the money you'll save in Tylose (CMC on chef rubber) alone is worth it!

Yes, Chef Rubber is wonderful! And you get your order asap. I often get my orders the next day.
