overhead shot of mixing pastillage

Rosie on the demo stage mixing her pastillage, rolling the sticky ball in powdered sugar. Also, everyone help track Rosie’s glasses so she doesn’t lose them.

Rosie’s pastillage methodology: weigh out 250g of icing sugar (aka powdered sugar, 10x, confectioner’s sugar) and mix in one egg white until it forms a paste. Mix in one teaspoon of CMC/Tylose. Turn the paste out onto a board or wide dish covered with more icing sugar and cover the sticky ball with the sugar. Knead until desired consistency/thickness. Cover the ball in Trex (Crisco or other white fat) and wrap in multiple layers of tight plastic until needed.

Rosie’s Gus the Grenadier cake can be seen here. Her YouTube channel full of helpful videos is here and her modeling chocolate video is below:

Claire then used a torn bit of paper as a partial mask to soften the horizon line.

removing mask

She then lifted off the original mask, revealing still-white fondant underneath.

final cake

She then hand-painted the silhouette, followed by more airbrushing in yellow and pink to make the peach-tinted moon and reflection on the waves. Finally she dotted with thick white food paint to make stars.

Sandie Beltran’s parody video of Adele she mentioned in her clip is here:

Here’s the first cookie Sandie made during her demo:

finished cookie

Sandie cut the scallops out of edible cake lace and mounted them on a royal icing circle in the middle, then covered that join with an edible image mounted on fondant, and covered that edge with a beaded piped border, all finished off with a moulded bow.

Phil and Christine Jenson’s white ganache recipe starts with three parts white chocolate to one part whipping cream (35% fat), and then they warm the cream and get the chocolate just melted, then add the chocolate to the cream a third at a time. Then they pour it into a large, shallow pan (no more than 2″ deep) lined with cling film. They cover it with more cling film, removing any bubbles where a skin might form, and then leave it alone for a 24 day to mature. Then they blitz it with a hand blender and pipe it onto their cakes as needed.

Here’s the Wikipedia entry on cream so you can look up your country’s information if it’s listed there.

tina face 1

Tina Scott Parashar shows the face she’s made comparing old and young features.

old face

Tina covers part of the face to show only the elderly side.

young face

Then she covered the other side to show the younger face.

modelling face

Tina using lots of extra paste when she models faces so she doesn’t have to worry about it squishing down and eroding the neck. She can then cut off the flat bit but still have plenty of paste for a full head.
