I’m super excited about this newest bonus tutorial from the Sugar Geeks Show on my Patreon channel. It’s all about isomalt and Frozen! One of the best parts of the whole movie is when Elsa realizes she can’t live a life as the perfect daughter and sister anymore and has to let her true self shine! She transforms into Queen Elsa and builds an amazing ice castle with the powers she had been holding back for so long.
I wanted to capture the beauty of that castle but obviously make it easy enough to re-create reasonably quickly for cakes. For this tutorial, I made a template for all the castle pieces so that you can make this castle again and again with the same beautiful results. There are some specialty items that you will need to pick up but once you have them, you can use them again and again.
The isomalt I prefer to use is from Simicakes because all you have to do is warm it up in the microwave and it’s ready to go. It doesn’t get soft on the cake and is resistant to humidity. It’s really the best isomalt I have used and very consistent.
One of the cool things about this tutorial is I pour the pieces out in a special way that gives the isomalt a real ice-y look to them! I wanted the castle to look as close to as humanly possible! All the pieces end up with cool little cracks and lines that catch the light and really give it that magical look. I may be guilty of singing “let it go” as I put this one together.
Don’t forget! I also have a FREE tutorial on how to make an easy Elsa topper to go with this cake. No modeling or cake decorating experience necessary
A little bit about patreon. When you sign up to be a patron you are supporting me as an artist. Because of your support, I am able to make more tutorials for you and provide them to you for an affordable price. All the tutorials that I create (except the face tutorial) are available in my online store but you have to pay full price for them and you have to buy them individually. When you become a patron, you automatically have access to all my tutorials (at the $9 or higher level). You get all new tutorials for only $9 per video. I make two videos per month. Your card is charged at the end of the month. Basically, patreon is a tutorial channel that only patrons have access to. You can cancel your membership at any time but you will always be able to watch the tutorials that you have paid for. To be come a patron, just click the big orange button on the left side.
