Making Pulled Sugar Designs in Your Apartment in Wildwood, FL
If you’ve ever marveled at the astonishing feats of famous pastry chefs on television, keep reading. While they seem to use magic to create beautiful and delicate shapes out of thin air, what they’re probably doing is stretching sugar. Yep, sugar. In just a few simple steps, you can finally make sugar look as good as it tastes.
The next time you want to dazzle your friends with a decorated cake for a special occasion, consider the following pulled sugar recipe:
- You will need a cooking thermometer, a copper pot, high heat-resistance oven mitts, sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, and water. Consult a specific pulled sugar recipe for proper proportions for how may sugar flowers you want to make.
- Put the sugar and water in the copper pot. Bring to a boil until sugar is totally dissolved. A foamy white substance will start forming on the surface of the water. Simply siphon this off and put it in a bowl.
- When the water reaches 230 degrees Fahrenheit, add the corn syrup and cream of tartar. Stop stirring and let mixture come to 315 degrees. Remove from heat and dip copper pot in a large pot of cold water for 30 seconds to allow it to cool slightly.
- Pour sugar onto an oiled marble surface. Still wearing your heat-resistant gloves, begin folding the sugar in on itself until the heat feels evenly distributed. Once the sugar is cool enough to handle, you can begin pulling the sugar in repeated, uniform motions until it takes on a satiny shine. You can now pull the sugar into a desired shape or press it into a sugar mold.
