How to Make Moulding Paste

  • Sift icing sugar and pour 2/3rd into a bowl. Keep remaining aside.
  • In a small pan, soak crystals in water, for an hour.
  • Add fat and heat on low, stirring slowly, till liquid is transparent.
  • Do not boil.
  • Pour in sugar in the bowl and mix well.
  • Knead in more icing as required, for mouldable consistency.
  • Dust hands with corn flour, before moulding.
  • Keep the kneaded icing in a zip lock plastic bag, till required.
  • Prepare a few days ahead, at leisure, since moulding is a time consuming procedure.
