By Karen Coubrough – Deco Magic
The next product in the Deco Magic portfolio to be created was “Universal Magic”. Lots of cake makers asked me to create a gel that they could buy in bulk & add their own colours too. These colours being liquid, paste, gel & powder. By doing this then customers could make there own unique metallic colours. “Universal Magic” is available in “Original Magic”, “Liquid Magic” & Drippy Magic”.
In July 2018 I launched “Drippy Magic Metallic Gold”. This is the first fully metallic gold solid colour gel for creating the drip effect on cakes, chocolates & other baked & iced confections. Drippy Magic is easy to use with a 3 step process of warming the gel pouch for 15 minutes in boiled water from your kettle. Once warm wiping the gel pouch to remove any excess water, then scraping your gel into your piping bag or squeeze bottle. Then you use Drippy Magic on your cake to create the drip effect.
The unique qualities of this gel are that it is a solid colour (not grainy), continues to drip down the side of the cake once on. Using 2 techniques to apply you can create both thick & thin drips. This gel sets hard within 10-15 minutes (cake out of the fridge). Decorations can be added to your cake while the drip is wet. (This helps the decorations to stick to the cake.) “Drippy Magic” works on white chocolate ganache, dark chocolate ganache, buttercream, fondant, glace icing, compound & couverture chocolate.
It is hard to explain the feeling that I get when customers share there cake pics with me telling me how much they enjoy using all of the products in the Deco Magic portfolio. After all I am a fellow cake decorator that had an idea to try to create a metallic gel to make all of our lives easier. To walk into a shop & see your product that you created on a shelf is unbelievable. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your cake decorating experience.
I’d love to hear feedback from anyone who uses this product & If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
