Sugar paste, also known as fondant or gumpaste , is used in decorating cakes and pastries. It is made from a mixture of icing sugar, glucose syrup or corn syrup, water and other optional ingredients such as gelatin, vegetable fats, flavorings and food colors.

Sugar paste is very malleable depending on the type, and can be rolled and spread to, for example, completely cover a cake. It is often used to create elaborate edible subjects like people or flowers, which are then placed on cakes of all kinds, from weddings to birthdays and other special occasions.

On this category page you will find all types of sugar paste existing in the world of pastry: modeling paste, covering paste, flower paste, tropical sugar paste, but also almond paste or almond paste. chocolate paste.

Sugar paste comes in several forms and in several compositions, these small differences make it possible to give this essential cake design a multitude of possible uses. We offer you in this category all types of existing sugar pastes to fully meet your requests.

It also resists refrigeration, which is another advantage of tropical sugar paste, in fact it is the only one to have this property which proves very practical for keeping your cake design cool for a few hours before serving it.

Sugar paste for the cake covering

It's a classic in cake design: covering a cake with sugar paste. You still have to choose it carefully! In fact, you risk seeing your dough crack, heat up, lose its color, etc. You must also choose the covering sugar paste which will be able to resist the deformations that you subject it to. To cover tall cakes, you can for example use flexible SilkyTop sugar paste, it does not crack and is (as its name suggests) very flexible.

We also find another star of covering sugar paste at Smartflex Velvet, we sell it in large format, which is ideal for large cakes that require a lot of materials.

When we talk about covering sugar paste we also think of pre-spread sugar paste to cover a cake. For example, the Renshaw brand sugar paste roller is specially designed for covering thanks to its diameter of 33cm, you just have to place it on your cake! Its composition does not change from other sugar pastes, only its shape changes, we can compare it to the pre-rolled pizza doughs that you find in stores.
