5kg / 11lb Cake Stuff Couture RED luxury sugarpaste ready to roll icing

Winner of the PRODUCT EXCELLENCE AWARD (Best Product - Edible Category) Cake Masters Magazine Awards 2019

THE WAIT IS OVER . . . 18 months of development, testing and re-testing have gone into this amazing product

  • Couture is the Great British luxury quality sugarpaste everyone is talking about
  • since its launch 3 years ago, Couture has become one of the most sought after sugarpastes in the UK
  • made exclusively for Cake Stuff, Couture the perfect sugarpaste for wedding and high-end celebration cakes, where quality of finish means everything
  • and now, to complement the best-selling White Couture and Ivory Couture, we've launched Black and Red . . .
  • ready-coloured red sugarpaste can often be quite soft and sticky, so we wanted to offer our customers a red sugarpaste that handles and performs every bit as well as White Couture... it has taken 18 months, but we think we've cracked it!
  • creating Red Couture was not as simple as adding red colouring to White Couture - this is a brand new product that we've extensively tested at various temperatures and levels of humidity, and on many different types, shapes and sizes of cakes
  • Red Couture offers a rich red that will not leach colour nor easily fade - perfect for novelty cakes, sculptured cakes and, of course, red themed wedding & celebration cakes
  • the shade is impossible to show accurately on screen, but it's a warm red with pink undertones - not quite a pillar box red . . .
  • IMPORTANT - the intensity of colour meets all EU and UK regulations on PPM (Parts Per Million) colour concentration - this is as strong a red as can be achieved legally. We're well aware that a couple of other brands offer a brighter, pillar box red but we've tested them too and they actually exceed the legal PPM limits
  • saves time and mess compared to mixing your own red Couture icing
  • Red Couture is slightly softer than White Couture, so for best results keep the icing and your hands cool when working and use only a minimal amount of icing sugar on your rolling pin, modelling board or work top, as adding too much will dry out the sugarpaste and cause cracking
  • you may find you have to work a little faster with it too, as it will dry out sooner than White Couture
  • often imitated but never bettered - this is the sugar paste that allows you to decorate your cakes with real finesse and panache
  • made using very special ultra-fine icing sugar and the finest Gum Tragacanth - these luxury ingredients help create the smoothest fondant yet for a flawlessly satin smooth icing that dries to an almost porcelain-like, silky finish
  • use Spray Shine or Shell & Shine to create a high gloss finish that's ideal for novelty cakes
  • Couture doesn't crack or craze (especially around corners) or form elephant skin if prepared correctly . . . simply knead well to activate the natural gums and you'll quickly realise just how good this sugarpaste really is
  • Couture is ideal for the latest cake design trends - it will not over-stretch, droop or tear on deeper and larger cakes and multi-tiered cakes
  • suitable for both covering and modelling - add C1000 Tylo Powder or more Gum Tragacanth for a lovely modelling paste
  • Couture combines the best features of other brands in one amazing sugarpaste . . .
  • . . .  the quality of finish of Massa Ticino, the slightly elastic handling properties of Satin Ice, the pinning out quality of Renshaw Pro (Regalice), the covering properties of Renshaw Extra and the delicious vanilla taste of Covapaste - all at the price you'd expect to pay for Renshaw Covering Paste
  • we're so confident you'll fall in love with Couture that it is the only sugarpaste with a Money Back Guarantee
  • Couture is 100% exclusive to Cake Stuff - no matter what anyone tells you, you cannot buy Couture from the manufacturer direct or from any national wholesaler nor can you buy the same product sold under a different name, but you can find it in a small number of highly select sugarcraft supplies shops, all of whom are Cake Stuff customers
  • PREPARATION - it is important to knead well before use to activate the gums for best performance - the ultra-fine icing sugar creates a 'dense' paste which, in cooler weather, may feel difficult to knead at first so if you find it a bit hard work you can warm slightly in a microwave (blitz for 10 seconds) prior to kneading
  • investment in massive state-of-the-art mixers means that we can now achieve excellent consistency between batches, in terms of texture, colour and flavour
  • increased volume means we can offer our customers a superb product made with the finest (and expensive!) ingredients for the same sort of price as they'd expect to pay for an everyday brand of sugarpaste
  • click here to read more information about the development and trialling of Couture
  • BULK PRICES - we no longer offer Price Breaks for buying more than 1 box of Couture at a time, but we have reduced the price for 1 box and we do offer additional discounts for busier cake makers so if you use quite a lot of Couture sugarpaste, find out more about becoming a Cake Stuff Trade Customer
  • *Best Before Date - normally at least 3-4 months at the earliest. In the beginning, Couture was produced with a 6 months BBE date to ensure it arrived with customers as fresh as possible but we carried out extensive testing on stock made 9-10 months ago and it performed perfectly, so we increased the BBE date to 9 months.  Nothing at all has changed with the recipe, it is purely the date that has been extended. Happy days!

So pleased that Couture is now available in black and red. Just used both and they are both a dream to work with. Not quite as firm as white Couture but still relatively firm. Easy to roll and lively to smooth. Will definitely be buying again. Now when are you adding blue to the range?

pretty amazing

I have just tried my first packs of black and red Couture and it is pretty amazing. Much better than Renshaw and damn good value considering the quality. xoxo
