Moulding Paste 2

(for solid figurines and cake decorations)


25ml tylopor

10ml water

5ml liquid glucose

2 large egg whites

500g pure icing sugar


Mix the first 4 ingredients for 2 mins with a fork in a large bowl - it will go funny - lumpy etc. Don't worry.

Cover with a damp cloth and leave it for one hour.

Rub in the icing sugar well with your hands.

If too dry, add a little water, say 5mls at a time, until you get the right consistency. If too soft, add icing sugar.

Apply copha to your hands, and mix well.

This mix will keep for months in the refrigerator - seal in plastic bag, and airtight container.
