Sugar Paste Recipe Thermomix

The Thermomix sugar paste is a very particular processed paste that can be colored and shaped in the most disparate ways.

Just think of the wonderful cakes from American films, so beautiful that they almost seem fake! :-)

To be honest I thought it was more difficult to do, but then I discovered that the ingredients are readily available and the preparation is actually very simple.

With the Thermomix then you have the feeling that the sugar paste is even better, because making it is fun. :-)...

The great thing about the Thermomix is that it allows you to save a lot! In fact, if you have to buy sugar paste, it is true that it is already made and you save some time, but it costs a lot and has preservatives. If, on the other hand, you do it yourself, you make the exact amount you need, don't put preservatives and use the sugar you choose ;-). And your wallet thanks ...


- 5 g gelatin in sheets
- 3 tbsp water
- 50 g glucose
- 500 g powdered sugar
- Corn starch to taste
- Food coloring in gel to taste

Let's cook

Soak 5 g gelatin in very cold water until completely soft.

Pour 3 tbsp water, 50 g glucose, the soaked gelatine into the mixing bowl and heat 1 Min. 37C Speed 2.

If you want to dye all the sugar paste in one color, add a small amount of dye now.

Add 500 g powdered sugar and knead 20 Sec. Speed 6.

Remove from the mixing bowl and knead a little more with your hands, form a ball, cover with cling film and let it rest for a few hours before using.

To work and roll out the sugar paste, avoiding it sticking to the work surface, use a little corn starch.


If you can't find glucose, you can use honey, in the same amount.

If the icing sugar has many lumps, you can quickly chop it before pouring the water into the mixing bowl and then keep it aside.

Use only gel dyes to prevent the sugar paste from becoming too soft.

Store the sugar paste by covering it well with cling film and then seal it in a plastic bag or jar.
