The covering sugar paste is then rolled out to the desired thickness and carefully draped over the cake, eliminating creases and air bubbles.
Once the sugarpaste is in place, it can be decorated with other sugarpaste shapes or other decorative elements, such as buttercream, fresh flowers or edible glitter. The result is a stunning cake that looks as good as it tastes, and is sure to impress your guests or clients. Whether you're a professional cake decorator or just looking to create a special cake for a special occasion, sugar paste is a versatile and easy-to-use option that can help you achieve beautiful results.

The first steps in the development of sugar paste date back to the 1500s, when its ingredients were sugar, rose water, egg white, lemon juice and tragacanth.
From the 17th to the 19th century, the term "icing" generally referred to a cake made of marzipan, which was a festive food. Marzipan was combined with sugar paste to carve centerpieces and candies.
In the mid to late 19th century, royal ices became popular and the technique of poaching with a sleeve was born.
It wasn't until the 20th century that sugarpaste was used as an icing. It is believed that the British invented sugarpaste to cover fruit cakes with a softer layer to replace the hard royal icing, which was usually placed over marzipan. It was also discovered that sugar paste insulated wedding cakes on hot days, allowing them to keep longer.
Today, sugarpaste is becoming increasingly popular. Cakes can now take on infinite shapes and be adorned with an infinite combination of decorations, modeling, and sugar paste flowers.
Its taste is generally neutral, sweet with a slight vanilla flavor. You can flavour the sugar paste with food flavourings as you wish.
