sugarpaste ready to roll fondant icing

Sugarpaste fondant cake icing is often called ready to roll icing or roll out icing and can give fantastic results which even first-time cake decorators will be able to achieve with ease.  Sugar paste icing is often referred to by brand names such as Regalice or Covapaste (in the same way that many of us refer to any vacuum cleaners as a Hoover) and sometimes known as rolled fondant - especially in the USA.

 

In the UK, fondant icing is really a soft, warmed icing used for fondant fancies and suchlike, whereas ready rolled sugarpaste icing is a cold product - used at room temperature for covering the cake.

 

REGALICE

Cake Stuff recommend Professional Regalice made by Renshaw - holders of the royal warrant.  Professional Regal Ice is a high quality sugarpaste icing which has excellent handling and covering properties, is not too sticky and less prone to crack than supermarket ready to roll icing  Please note Professional Regalice is not the same product as cheaper SuperCook Regalice sold in supermarkets. 

 

Professional Regalice is available in white and ivory in 250g, 500g, 1kg, 2½kg and 5kg packs, and in a full range of colours in 250g packs.  Renshaw Regalice has been the top selling sugar paste for many years - in fact Regalice is over 100 years old - so we reckon just about every customer will be familiar with the product.  Renshaw are now part of a larger group of food companies have decided to re-brand Regalice as Decor Ice Ready To Roll Icing.

 

Renshaw have discontinued 5kg and 10kg trade blocks and are now supplying all bulk Regalice / Decor-Ice in 2.5kg sleeve packs - this allows us to offer price breaks when buying 5kg or 10kg and multiples thereof.

 

5kg (2 x 2½kg sleeve packs) may be supplied in a Renshaws outer box or be re-packed by Cake Stuff - this is because the original box may have contained 10kg (4 packs).  All 2.5kg sleeve packs are guaranteed 100% genuine Renshaw and will have the authentic Renshaw labelling but outer boxes may vary depending on how stock has arrived with us.

 

Renshaw are re-branding all Regalice packs to say Ready To Roll Icing and / or Decor-IceRegalice is such a well known and well-loved name within the cake decorating world that this is a real shame but, unfortunately, when Renshaw sold a chunk of their business to Dr Oetker they included the famous Regalice name.

 

We feel that calling it "Ready To Roll" could confuse a premium sugarpaste with cheaper, sticky supermarket roll out icings so if you receive stocks of the new-style packs of sugarpaste and can't find the word "Regalice" anywhere, please be assured this still is Regalice as we all know it.  We'll continue to refer to it as Regalice as this is really what everyone knows it as.

 

Please note as Renshaw move towards using natural colours and lower parts-per-million (PPM) colour concentrations, BBE dates are shorter on freshly produced Regalice than in the past - BBE dates also vary with colour, so could be anything from 2 months to 12 months - as a general rule, all our stock will have BBE dates of at least one full month on top of the month we are currently in.

 


RENSHAW COVERING PASTE

For busier cake makers and trade customers, Cake Stuff also recommend our best-selling Premium Sugarpaste - Renshaw's Covering Paste sugarpaste fondant icing.  Available in white and ivory, Covering Paste is also also manufactured by Renshaw and offers excellent handling and covering properties, combined with a deliciously subtle vanilla flavour. Not as dry or firm to work with as Regalice, Covering Paste is ideal for celebration and novelty cakes and is available in 2.5kg and 5kg trade packs, with price breaks on larger quantities offering fantastic value for money for busier customers.  Each 5kg box of Renshaws' Premium Sugarpaste contains 2 x 2.5kg packs which is a great feature as it prevents the sugarpaste from drying out if you don't need to use all 5kg at once. For customers used to using BAKO Sugarpaste we would highly recommend this product as an extremely similar and well-priced alternative.


COUTURE SUGARPASTE

Cake Stuff also highly recommend Cake Stuff Couture artisan sugarpaste fondant icing - made in small batches by a specialist sugarcraft manufacturer using the very highest quality ingredients.  Unlike Regalice, Couture sugarpaste contains natural gums which give outstanding handling and covering performance - similar to Satinice (see below).  Couture icing is made using ultra fine icing sugar ground to only 11 microns, to offer the smoothest fondant paste yet - it doesn't crack or craze, especially around corners if prepared correctly.  It is VERY IMPORTANT to remember to knead well before use to activate the gums and to mix any natural oils which may be present on surface of the paste, for best performance.  Cake Stuff Couture is suitable for both covering and modelling - dries to a smooth, porcelain like finish and can be coloured using paste / gel icing colouring.

 

COVAPASTE

Cake Stuff also recommend Flemings Covapaste - another premium quality sugar paste fondant icing available in white and ivory, with superb covering properties and a gorgeous, almost fudgey, vanilla flavour. Covapaste is aimed at professional bakers with pinning and sheeting equipment as it slightly more elastic than other brands, but can just as easily be used by home bakers and cake decorators.

 

Cova paste is also available in 2.5kg and 5kg trade packs, with price breaks on larger quantities offering fantastic value for money for busier customers.  Each 5kg box of Covapaste contains 2 x 2.5kg sealed packs.

 

SATINICE

Cake Stuff also stock Satinice - the rolled fondant sugar paste icing everyone is talking about thanks to the huge popularity of American TV cake shows.  Available in 1kg, 2.5kg and 10kg plastic pails, Satin Ice does not smell as sweet as British sugar pastes but has exceptional covering properties due to the inclusion of gums in the recipe.  Available in white (vanilla), ivory and chocolate with more colours planned for later in the year.  Satinice is difficult to stock in any quantity because the UK distributors only import one container load at a time and, once this sells, we sometimes have to weight several weeks for the next container arriving and clearing customs.  Satinice is an excellent product but if this is the brand you prefer, our advice is always to have some extra in stock!

 

CULPITT SUGAR PASTE

Cake Stuff also stock Cake Decorating Sugar Paste fondant icing from CulpittCulpitt sugarpaste has what the baking industry a "cleaner eat", by which we mean a less gummy texture and handles well for both covering and modelling, so it is certainly worth considering.  Culpitt sugarpaste is available in original white, brilliant white and ivory in 5kg plastic pails as well as 250g, 500g and 1kg retail packs.  Culpitt sugarpaste is also available in a range of popular colours in 250 retail packs.

 

BEAU SUGARPASTE

Cake Stuff also stock a range of premium colours and flavoured sugarpaste fondant icing from Beau ProductsBeau Products are well known for their excellent icing / food flavourings and also offer a range of delicious coloured sugarpaste icing, ready flavoured to match the colour.

 

BAKERS FONDANT

Cake Stuff also stock actual Bakers' Fondant - please remember that although used as a term for sugarpaste icing in the USA, the term "fondant" has a different meaning in UK baking and cake decorating circles and is not the same as roll-out sugarpaste icing.

 


"OK - so which brand am I best using?" . . . the question we're asked all the time.

 

The simple answer is - there isn't a simple answer(!).  Everyone has a slightly different way of working and, as with most things in life, will find their own personal favourite.  Based on sales and customer feedback we're happy to offer the following summary, but perhaps the safest solution is to buy one of our exclusive sugarpaste & marzipan sample packs and try all the brands for yourself.


SUMMARY . . .

  • RENSHAW PREMIUM SUGARPASTE Covering Paste - ideal for novelty and general celebration cakes.  Excellent value and made by Renshaw.  Has a subtle vanilla flavour and good handling qualities, although a few customers have commented they prefer the firmer texture of RegaliceCovering Paste works perfectly well for wedding cakes too but if you're not familiar with the product, we'd advise getting to know it first (try our sugarpaste & marzipan sample pack) as it does handle slightly softer than Regalice so you need to get used to this to avoid cracks.  This is our best seller and we currently are selling around 3-4 metric tonnes every week - so it's obviously doing the job!
  • CAKE STUFF COUTURE is a luxury quality artisan sugarpaste fondant icing made fresh in small batches by a specialist sugarcraft manufacturer using the very highest quality ingredients including ultra fine icing sugar ground to only 11 microns, to offer the smoothest fondant paste yet.  Couture doesn't crack or craze, especially around corners if prepared correctly. Couture sugarpaste icing contains natural gums which give outstanding handling and covering performance but it is VERY IMPORTANT to knead well before use to activate the gums and mix any surface oils for best performance.  Cake Stuff Couture is suitable for both covering and modelling - dries to a smooth, porcelain like finish and can be coloured using paste / gel icing colouring.
  • COVAPASTE - a delicious premium sugarpaste icing with, arguably, the best flavour.  Lovely vanilla flavour and scent with excellent covering properties.  Covapaste is perfect for wedding and other celebration cakes but is intended for trade bakers with sheeting equipment, so it is essential to knead well to activate the gums.  Once you do this, the covering properties of Covapaste really are excellent
  • REGALICE - the old favourite from Renshaw (by Royal Appointment) and still excellent quality, although a much firmer sugar paste so requires a little work to improve the elasticity before rolling out. Regalice traditionally contains vinegar as a thickener and stabiliser.  Some customers have been using Regalice for 50+ years and simply wouldn't dream of changing as they know the product so well.  Renshaw have recently re-branded Regalice under the Decor-Ice sub-brand as "Ready To Roll Icing" and is now packed in 2.5kg sleeves within either the 5kg or 10kg box.
  • SATINICE - cake decorating TV shows are now hugely popular in the UK and this is the brand all the American big names use.  Satinice doesn't have as sweet an aroma as British sugarpaste and some customers describe the handling properties as being similar to plasticine - not a bad thing, we stress, but this highlights the exceptional covering properties of Satinice due to the inclusion of gums in the recipe.  This is essential for the hotter states in the USA where the paste must hold itself in pretty extreme temperatures.  More expensive that UK brands mainly because of high shipping costs from the USA, but well worth a try and with a growing army of loyal fans.
  • CULPITT CAKE DECORATING SUGAR PASTE - available in white, ivory and a range of colours, this is a good quality sugarpaste with a "clean eat", feeling less gummy than some other brands. 250g, 500g and 1kg retails are available alongside 5kg plastic buckets.  Culpitt kept the production of their new sugarpaste a real secret and it has raised a few eyebrows within the industry as it has turned out to be a serious contender and alternative to Regalice.
  • BEAU PRODUCTS SUGARPASTE - a new name which is attracting a huge amount of interest.  What we love is the way they've taken something as "basic" (to cake decorators) as sugarpaste and added their own unique twist . . . vibrant colours and flavours.  Flavoured sugarpaste icing isn't actually a new idea - a Scottish manufacturer tried to launch flavoured icing 20 years ago but the market just wasn't ready and the idea never really caught on.  However, Beau Products have really come up trumps with their new range . . . you can buy the sugar paste already flavoured, or buy the flavourings on their own to add to your own preferred brand of sugarpaste. Mixing colours and flavours means the possibilities are endless!!!

Please have a good browse - we'll be adding more colours and flavours of sugarpaste over the coming months but, meantime, please try them and let us know your opinion.  Uniquely, Cake Stuff also offer a SAMPLE PACK containing 7 small packs of the top 6 sugarpaste fondant icings (plus marzipan), so that you can try / feel / taste before ordering larger packs.

 

Cake Stuff no longer stock M&B sugarpaste, after listening to what customers were saying.  M&B sugarpaste is much softer than Regalice and opinion from customers has always been a bit mixed.  As always happens when offering more than one brand, some customers swear by Regalice, others prefer M&B, but over the past few years a number of customers reported finding M&B just too soft (and even sticky) to give a proper finish.  If you like M&B then please accept our apologies - it's just not viable to carry a second full range of colours at the moment without constantly finding Best Before dates getting too close to sell - why not try the new Culpitt range of coloured sugarpaste fondant icing? Renshaw's launch of new Regalice colours has more-or-less sealed the fate of M&B.

 

Colours shown on this site are limited by photography and shades will vary on different PC monitors.
