Sugarpaste 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 is also often referred to by brand names such as Regalice or Covapaste and sometimes (incorrectly) as fondant. Fondant icing is really a warmed icing used for fondant fancies and suchlike, whereas ready rolled icing is a cold product - used at room temperature for covering the cake.
Cake Stuff recommend Professional Regal Ice made by Renshaw - holders of the royal warrant. Professional Regalice is a high quality sugarpaste 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 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
LATEST NEWS - 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 Renshaw 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-ice". Regalice 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
For busier cake makers and trade customers, Cake Stuff also recommend our best-selling Premium Sugarpaste (Renshaw Covering Paste). Available in white and ivory, Premium Sugarpaste (Covering Paste) is also manufactured by Renshaw and offers excellent handling and covering properties, combined with a deliciously subtle vanilla flavour
Cake Stuff also recommend Covapaste - another premium quality sugar paste available in white and ivory, with superb covering properties and a gorgeous, almost fudgey, vanilla flavour
Both Premium Sugarpaste and Covapaste are 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 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
Cake Stuff also stock Satinice - the new sugar paste everyone is talking about thanks to the huge popularity of American TV cake shows. Available in 2.5kg and 10kg plastic pails, Satinice 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
Cake Stuff also stock Cake Decorating Sugar Paste from Culpitt - another new brand customers have been asking about. Culpitt sugar paste is 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
"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 . . .
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 5 small packs of the top 4 sugarpastes (plus marzipan), so that you can try / feel / taste before ordering larger packs.
We 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 year a growing number of customers have 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. 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.
