Wheroll long sugar paste, would you dust with icing sugar or cornflour?
Sorry, this should say ‘ when rolling sugar paste…’
Personal preference I like using cornflour but when wasn’t on Paul’s class he used icing sugar. I find icing sugar dries the sugarpaste out and feels more gritty
I use icing sugar for pale colours and a smear of trex for dark colours so I don’t get white marks. Corn flour (as well as some other cereals and rice) can contain a bacteria that causes food poisoning and whilst it’s highly unlikely to happen its a risk I don’t need to introduce, and as I am selling my cakes, I dont use it! I had no idea about the corn flour until I went on my food hygiene course!
I’ve always used icing sugar. I only use cornflour when frilling ‘garrett frills’.
Questions, issues or concerns? I'd love to help you!
