✔ This pre-cooked Isomalt melts in the microwave in just a few seconds. No cooking is required. Sugar burns easily, but Isomalt won’t change colour when heated.
✔ Sugar absorbs more water than Isomalt, so it’s more hygroscopic and more difficult to use.
✔ Unlike sugar, CakePlay’s Isomalt resists crystallisation, even after remelting. Just let it cool and you can easily use it again for a different application.
✔ Isomalt is less fragile and easier to work with.
✔ When properly cooked, tempered, handled and stored, Isomalt is more forgiving of high-humidity conditions.
✔ Isomalt colours can be mixed together in different ways. The nibs can be melted together in a cup, for example mix a little blue to some white will create a baby blue. You can also melt them separately, and pour together to make a two toned, swirl effect.
