Massa Ticino™- The King of Sugarpaste
I’m sure you’ve all heard of world-famous, unrivalled Massa Ticino™ brand of products from Carma, but just in case you haven’t, we’re here to introduce you to the Rolls Royce of sugarpaste!
Carma was founded in Switzerland in 1931 by Carl Maentler – a Swizz man with a sweet tooth, who had genius plans to developed a unique line of products, tailored to the needs of professional bakers and cake designers. Just over thirty years later, Carma began producing Massa Ticino™ products in Switzerland, and have been successfully selling on international markets since 1963. In fact, it wasn’t long before it earned a reputation for being one of the world’s leading sugarpaste brands!
Today, Massa Ticino™ is setting standards in the industry, with a collection of 10 colours in total (including their classic Bride White). And despite the vibrant colour choices, Massa Ticino™ uses all natural colours – completely free from AZO dyes and any animal-derived products. It’s also dairy, gluten and cholesterol free, and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. But, most importantly, it’s the quality of Massa Ticino™ sugarpaste that makes this brand unrivalled. This top quality paste offers outstanding workability, featuring high elasticity to ensure it doesn’t rip, crack, or form that dreaded ‘elephant skin’ – a cake artist’s ultimate pet peeve! Massa Ticino™ simply provides the most perfect finish, with a smooth and crisp shell.
Okay, yes, the price per gram is slightly more expensive than other brands. BUT, unlike other pastes, Massa Ticino™ rolls super thin, ensuring you use LESS (up to 40%) and SAVE more. It will also save you time and so much effort in all of your upcoming projects – that’s priceless!
Still made in Switzerland to an exacting recipe, the Massa Ticino™ range now includes: Bride White. Pitch Black, Vintage Ivory, Lovely Red, Mellow Yellow, Pretty Pink, Sailing Blue, Perfect Purple, Grass Green, and Chocolate Brown
Our customers absolutely love Massa Ticino™ sugarpaste, and so do we! Why not try it for yourself and see what all the fuss is about?
