One of the secrets to make beautiful cakes is the
decoration, and of course a cake decorated with sugar
flowers will always be a success. Today we are going to
give you the recipe for how to make the pastillage. It is simple
and if you follow the instructions you will not have any
problem whatsoever. You will need:
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon glucose
1 pound and one cup powder sugar 10X (make sure the sugar
Place the lime juice and the water in a pyrex cup, add the
gelatin, place in micro-oven for 15 seconds. The gelatin
will dissolve very well, (do not over heat)then add the
glucose y make sure is dissolve completely. Now put half of
the sugar in the KitchenAid bowl, place the pallet on the
machine and beat slowly, keep adding the sugar a little bit
at a time. If you put all the sugar at once, you can brake
your machine. A little bid at the time will be fine. You
will get a soft paste. Place some sugar on the table, and
knead the paste with the remaining sugar. Do not add all
sugar at once, go little by little. The paste can be a
little sticky, don’t worry, just put powdered sugar in your
hands. Wrap in a plastic bag and let it at room
temperature for 24 hours.
Pastillage does not need to be refrigerated.
This is a very easy to do recipe. If you have any

See you next week.
