Creating stunning edible decorations is now even easier with SK Ready-tempered Isomalt.

SK Ready-tempered Isomalt is a sugar-free alternative that is ideal for making decorative biscuit centres, pulled sugar work and moulded decorations, and is now available in vibrant coloured blossoms that you simply melt in a microwave. Squires Kitchen have pre-tempered the Isomalt so you dont have to just melt the blossoms and the Isomalt is ready to use! For biscuit centres, just place the isomalt blossom on the baking tray inside the shape and bake the biscuits as normal.

This great ready-tempered range of Isomalt comes in seven bright colours: Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Blue, Green and Purple, as well as Gold Sparkle and Silver Sparkle to add shimmer to your creations.

What is Isomalt?

Isomalt is a sugar substitute which has been obtained from sugar beet by treating it with enzymes. Isomalt is chemically grouped as disaccharide alcohol (polyol), it is safe for the teeth and has 50% less calories than table sugar. Food containing isomalt instead of sugars induces a lower blood glucose rise and lower insulinemic response after consumption compared to sugar. Isomalt has a melting point of 145C to 150C and is pre-tempered so it can be easily melted in the microwave.

Precautions

When working with liquid Isomalt remember to take great care as it can cause serious burns if spilled onto the skin. For this reason, Isomalt should not be used by children.

How to use SK Ready-tempered Isomalt

Method 

  • Place the desired amount of isomalt blossoms into a microwaveable container and place in a microwave.
  • Melt in 30-second increments until the isomalt becomes fluid.
  • Carefully remove the isomalt from the microwave using ovenproof gloves
  • The isomalt will be extremely hot.
  • Stir and wait for the bubbling to stop then slowly pour into the desired container or mould. Alternatively you can pour onto a heatproof flat surface and work it with kitchen utensils or, once cool enough, your hands.
  • To make the surface smoother or to smooth any rough edges, sweep a crme brle torch over any isomalt that has touched the mould.

For creating larger pieces, we recommend using our larger packs of SK Isomalt.

Using silicone or metal moulds 

  • Melt the isomalt as per the instructions and wait for the liquid to stop bubbling.
  • Place the mould onto the baking tray and gently pour the solution into the mould. If more than one colour is required, pour one colour into part of the mould and allow to set. Pour the other colour in, ensuring that it completely attaches to the first colour.
  • Leave until cold, then remove from mould. If the isomalt sets in the microwaveable container or a piece has not set as required, it can be re-melted and used again.
  • Store smaller pieces in an airtight container with silica gel sachets.

Making sugar baskets and spinning sugar 

  • Follow the method as for silicone moulds for bringing the isomalt to temperature.
  • Lightly grease the outside of a ladle.
  • Allow a fine strand to fall off the end of a spoon and form a trellis or other lacy pattern over the back of the ladle. When completely set, carefully remove the sugar basket from the ladle.
  • The basket can then be filled with ice cream or other dessert. Serve immediately as the basket will start to dissolve.
  • The isomalt solution can also be piped, but great care needs to be taken when doing this. Use triple layers of silicone paper piping bags, do not overfill the bag, and ensure that the open ends of the bag are folded down so that the solution cannot spill out of the bag. Wear heavy-duty rubber gloves, a protective apron and covered shoes when doing this and as a safety precaution, wrap the piping bag in a tea towel before beginning to pipe.
  • It is also possible to create spun sugar by quickly spinning a very fine strand of the liquid isomalt onto a lightly-greased baking tray. This can then be gathered up and placed on top of a dessert for a stunning effect.
