HOE OM ROOM TE STABILISEER


HOE OM ROOM TE STABILISEER
Om te help dat room langer vorm hou, probeer gerus die volgende.
1 liter vars room
2 teelepels gelatine
50 ml water
Meng die gelatine met die water en sit vir 10 sekondes in die mikrogolf, meng goed dat dit lyk soos stroop sonder enige klonte, moet lekker glad wees.
Klits die room tot amper styf in ‘n skoon mengbak.  Gooi nou die gelatinemengsel met ‘n dun straaltjie by die room terywl jy die hele tyd klits tot die room mooi styf is en alles goed ingemeng is.
Nota:
Vir ‘n soeter weergawe kan ongeveer 3 eetlepels strooisuiker geleidelik bygevoeg word en ‘n teelepel vanilla geursel.

HOW TO SOFTEN HARD FONDANT


HOW TO SOFTEN HARD FONDANT
Heat Softening. A short stint in the microwave turns a hard fondant into a more pliable product. Place the fondant in a microwavable bowl and heat in five-second intervals. To avoid getting burned by hot fondant, wait until it is cool to the touch and then knead the fondant after each burst of microwaving.

AMARULA CREAM CHEESE FROSTING


AMARULA CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
250 g cream cheese (1 brick)
115 g / ¼ lb (4 oz) / 1 stick softened butter
1-2 teaspoons Amarula liqueur
1½ cups icing sugar / confectioners/powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese, butter and Amarula liqueur with electric beaters until light and fluffy and well-blended. Slowly add ½ cup of icing sugar at a time, and beat until smooth and creamy. Check for consistency. If you prefer it thicker, feel free to add another ½ cup of icing sugar.
I prefer to not add it, as I am not keen on the extra sweetness. Liberally coat your cooled carrot cake with this moreish Amarula cream cheese frosting. Decorate and sprinkle a copious amount of chopped walnuts and add some maraschino cherries as well.
