Sugar Flower Paste / Mexican Modelling Paste / Modelling Paste are simply sugarpastes blended with natural gums and other ingredients (often fat and egg white), which allow the paste to be rolled very thinly and set to a fine, firm finish. Flower Paste dries in contact with air to a hard porcelain-like finish. Flower Paste is, technically speaking, an edible product but let's be honest, anyone who would attempt eating rock-hard sugar flowers would have to be a bit mad to begin with. The BBE date is therefore for guidance only.
Cake-stuff.com have traditionally recommended the UK brand leader Sugar Florist Paste (SFP), made by Squire's Kitchen, however recently Renshaw's new Flower Modelling Paste has been out-selling all other brands by miles.
Cake-stuff.com is also delighted to announce the arrival of Satinice Gum Paste . . . the modelling and flower paste used throughout the USA and seen on all those US TV cake shows . . . great quality, and at a remarkable price in 2.5kg plastic tubs. We also now have the new Flower & Modelling Paste from Renshaw.

All brands of white paste can be coloured using Sugarflair icing paste colourings to offer the widest possible range shades. Detail colour can also be added using Sugarflair Blossom Tints, Edible Lustres and Craft Dusting Powders . . .all of which we stock.
Easy to use . . . if stored somewhere cool, allow to warm to room temperature, then simply knead the paste / work with fingers to improve elasticity, roll to desired thickness with a non-stick mini rolling pin using a little icing sugar to dust your board / working surface or a tiny bit of white fat . . . remember never to use flour to dust as this can ferment. Flower Paste dries when exposed to air, so always wrap unused paste in clingfilm.
