I was sent 12 different Renshaw products to both try out and also give away (don’t worry you get new ones not my leftovers!)
I gave the Decor-Pan coloured marzipan a try when I made Raspberry Mille Feuille. It was really easy to use, the colour was so pretty, and it tasted delicious! I think this product would be fantastic for making a fun coloured battenberg, and it’s a great way to make marzipan the star of the show, rather than being hidden under fondant.
For the candy melts I made some cake truffles, which are a big favourite of mine. (I’ll be sharing the full recipe next week!) I melted the white Colour Melts quickly in the microwave in the tub they came in, and I also dipped the truffles straight into the tub – saved on washing up! The truffles were a bright white colour, and I dipped them twice to get a nice thick coating.
For for the ready to roll icing I had a go at decorating some cupcakes. I am by no means an expert at using this type of icing! But I found it to be a fun experience, a chance to be creative, and it was also really easy to use. I like that you get a small selection of colours in each pack as it is a good way to try it out if you are new to this type of cake decorating.
I haven’t had a chance to use the royal icing yet or the flower modelling paste, but when I do I’ll definitely blog about it to let you know my experience and opinion!
