Playing with Renshaws Regal ice, pre-dyed Baby blue. I´m not that big a fan of Regal Ice, but i found that adding a small amount of tylose powder to the fondant, it´s ok to work with, as this dummy shows.(pictures taken with an Iphone, through a window, and are not edited).
For borders and decorations a larger amount of tylose is needed.
Small crown from Patchwork cutters- The fondant holds shape nicely :)
Painted with Rainbow Dust Metallic´s, copper - Wow! Great to work with!
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Light silver - beautiful and delicate!
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Dark silver - so shiny.
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Dark gold - Wonderful.
Regal Ice on its own is not very useable for molds like the silicone-pearl mold, as the string of pearls breaks several times along the way when i try to remove it from the mold. But - by adding tylose again, it works!
Maybe Renshaws fondant is mostly for covering cakes? I don´t know for sure, but i know now that tylose powder does the trick for me anyways :)
500g sliced rhubarb stalks - 250g sugar (I use 200g) and 13 dl of water (I use 15 dl).
Heat up slowly and quickly remove the pot when it hits boiling temperature or else the lemonade looses it´s divine colour. Sift through a cloth and let cool down. Rinse the lemonade-bottles with alcohol before filling them.
The remaining rhubarb-pulp can be used in tarts, fruit porridge, pastries, jam with icecream, compote, trifles etc.
