Isomalt Cakes: Trending Glass Effect
Are you intrigued by fancy cakes these days? A big time revolution is changing the way cakes are designed. The recent trend is an Isomalt cake, a kind of sugar topping that gives the cake a delicate glass effect. So, what is an Isomalt cake and how is it made and why has it become the talk of the town? Read on to learn everything about this trending cake.
What is Isomalt?
Isomalt is basically a sugar substitute made from refined sugar. This sugar formation is unknown to a great many people except if they are cake decorators or are associated with food industry. The good thing is that this sugar form is not really sweet as sugar, and can easily be blended with other sugar substitute sugars like sucralose to increase the sweetness quotient. Isomalt should be warmed to be formed, molded, or utilized for further use.
Usage of Isomalt
Another good thing about Isomalt is that it does not caramelize when heat is applied to it the way sugar does. Moreover, it does not take on that m "caramel" hue, thus saving you room to create great design elements for cakes that need to have a clear color. Certain applications of Isomalt sugar are candies, gemstones, windows for gingerbread houses, and glamorous sparkling mosaics, among many others.
Isomalt also easily be sculpted or molded into just about any shape. One of the things you need to keep in mind is the usage of molds that can withstand very high temperatures (Pro tip: avoid plastic molds that can distort or even melt under heat). Secondly, you must take special care to work carefully and safely with this medium to avoid burns. It is sticky and hard to remove when hot. Don’t forget that it can cause serious burns, if not handled with care.
Isomalt on a Cake
Isomalt is the ideal thing for making wonderful clear toppings and decorations for your cakes, confections and treats! Apart from not turning yellow or brown under high heat conditions, it quite well stands up to moisture and humidity levels better than sugar so it’s a great choice to use as a decoration.
But, Is It Safe to Eat?
Yes! Isomalt is made using beets and is completely safe to eat. However, our bodies cannot digest Isomalt. This means that it passes right through our system without getting absorbed or digested in the body. This also means that if you eat it in large quantities, you will certainly end up with an upset stomach.
