Glycerine is a versatile ingredient that can be used in various ways in cake decorating. It is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture, which makes it an excellent addition to baked goods. Here are some ways glycerine can be used in cake decorating:
- Preserving freshness: Adding a couple of teaspoons of glycerine to your cake batter before baking acts as a preservative, holding onto that fresh baked feeling long after it has come out of the oven. Recommendation is using up to 3 tsp in a Vanilla Cake and 1-2 tsp in Chocolate Cake to really lock in that moisture.
- Smooth and shiny royal icing: A touch of glycerine in royal icing adds shine and prevents your icing from setting hard and dry. This makes it far easier to apply to cakes and guarantees a nice smooth cut when slicing. Add 1 tsp of glycerine for every 500g of icing sugar for a softer set and 2 tsp per 500g for a nice glossy finish.
