Why is it best to use a specialised measuring cup for Isomalt?
The Silicone based measuring cup is excellent for pouring Isomalt, especially in large or controlled amounts. Just pinch one edge to create a pouring spout. You can let the remaining Isomalt cool, pop it out and then store with a Dessicant packet in a sealed container.
What is Isomalt?
Isomalt is a versatile, crystalline substance with many different uses and applications. It’s derived from sucrose and preferred by pastry and cake professionals for its stability and usability. However, it’s difficult to cook isomalt crystals on the stove and achieve the proper cooking and tempering conditions. This stovetop cooking method is also tedious and time-consuming.
Our pre-cooked Isomalt Sticks are such a great innovation! This unique isomalt can be melted in the microwave, making it easy to add sparkle and dimension to cakes. It’s also ideal for creating free-standing sugar showpieces. CakePlay’s pre-cooked isomalt lets you add a professional touch in just seconds. It’s the hot new decorating tool you’ve got to try!

To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
