    About this recipe: A fondant style petit four icing that can be easily coloured or flavoured. Pour over petits fours, and then decorate them with nuts, candied fruit or coconut.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 48 

    • 400g caster sugar
    • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 250ml water
    • 200g icing sugar, or as needed

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a saucepan, stir together the caster sugar, cream of tartar and water. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, and cook without stirring until the temperature is between 106 to 112 degrees C, or until a small amount of syrup dripped from a spoon can spin a long thread.
    2. When the syrup comes to the proper temperature, remove from heat, and stir in icing sugar about 50g at a time until the icing is thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Test by pouring over a small piece of cake. Adjust the amount of icing sugar as needed to get a good pouring consistency. Use while warm, or reheat over simmering water. Keep covered with cling film when not in use to prevent a crust from forming on the top.

    Note:

    Use with this Petits Fours recipe.
