7kg Tropic White sugar paste from Carma

considered by many as the ultimate sugarpaste . . .

  • Carma was founded in Switzerland in 1931 by Carl Maentler – a Swiss guy with a sweet tooth!  Carma first developed their Massa Ticino sugarpaste in 1963 and it quickly earned a reputation for being one of the world’s best sugar pastes
  • 50 years later Carma have launched nine new colours - all created from natural origins, so they are free from the AZO dyes and any animal derived products
  • still made in Switzerland to an exacting recipe, Massa Ticino offers outstanding workability. It is a perfect choice for covering cakes due to its high elasticity it will not easily rip, crack or form elephant skin whilst being used, and will smooth to a perfect finish and dries to a crisp shell
  • as with any top quality product, Massa Ticino is more expensive than other brands and there's not a lot we can do with the price, but Cake Stuff are committed to offering our customers the best possible prices in the UK
  • don't be put off by the price - we have hundreds of customers who simply will not use any other sugarpaste after switching to Massa - many claim it is no more expensive than other brands because (1) you can roll very thinly so actually use a lot less and (2) its performance avoids re-covering due to tears, elephant skin etc
  • customers report they can cover a 10 inch round cake with 1kg of Massa Ticino sugarpaste
  • suitable for both covering and modelling
  • IMPORTANT - this is Tropic Massa Ticino - please make sure you are ordering the correct version
  • 'Tropic' refers to a special recipe created for warmer climates but most of our customers feel this is the best version of Massa Ticino - we also stock Massa Ticino original white 7kg if you prefer
  • TOP TIP - love Massa Ticino Tropic but find it very expensive? Yes, so do most customers which is why many now mix it 50:50 with white Couture - the resulting sugarpaste is exceptional but saves you over 25% on the cost of using 100% Massa Tropic
  • PLEASE NOTE that Massa Ticino Tropic is a different product to both Massa Ticino Original and Massa Ticino Bride White
  • supplied in resealable plastic bucket - sugarpaste is sealed in an inner plastic bag 
  • bucket measures approx 9" / 23cm diameter including handles x 8" / 20.5cm with handle in folded position as in photo
  • Massa is a superb sugar paste but at over £6 per kilo it's not cheap; so you may want to at least consider Couture as an alternative - Couture works out at HALF the cost of Massa !
  • BULK TRADE PRICES - we no longer offer Price Breaks for buying more than 1 pail of this product at a time, but we've reduced the price for buying just 1 and we do offer additional discounts for busier cake makers - find out more about becoming a Cake Stuff Trade Customer
  • approx 7 kg - approx 15½ lb - accurately 15.4lb
  • click here for our Cake Covering Guide
  • BBE date at least 3-4 months and normally much (much!) longer
  • suitable for vegetarians and vegans - no animal-derived ingredients
  • AZO free  -  gluten free  -  cholesterol free  -  no artificial colours (ie no E numbers*)
  • colours follow standard Pantone system so can be mixed for an infinite range of shades - over 100 colours can be created from mixing just 2-3 Massa Ticino colours - find out how to create your exact shade with the amazing Massa Ticino Colour Mixing Guide
  • produced in a facility which also handles marzipan, so there is always a small risk of nut traces being present
  • ingredients: sugar, glucose syrup, water, hydrogenated vegetable fat (palm kernel), gelling agent: tragacanth, vegetable oil (sunflower), humectant: glycerol, citric acid E330, preservative: sorbic acid, flavouring
  • * it is worth noting that although Carma do not use artificial colourings, other natural ingredients do have E numbers (eg Gum Tragacanth is E413) so we want to avoid any confusion that their "no E number" marketing may cause by being clear about this

Switching to Couture

Here's my honest review: is Massa Ticino good? Yes! Is it worth £6 a kilo? No! I've been buying my Massa from Cake Stuff because theres is the best price but its still very costly so I tried Couture and I love it. You maybe can't roll just as thin as Massa but Couture is an excellent fondant and its half the price of Massa so come on, do the maths xxx
