Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
Carmas Massa Ticino Tropic
Hi Cake Decorators,
Paul uses this Carmas sugar paste on the new tutorial to cover the large cake. Does anyone know where to buy?
The Tutorial is brilliant and there are lots of tips.
thanks in advance.
Just to let you know I contacted town and country and they could only sell me 6 tubs each weighing 7kg @ £35 each.
That was the minimum order. Going to see if I can order it through work.
Or maybe perhaps Paul may start his shop again and stock it.
Oops sorry Alison, only just spotted your post. In Australia Chef Yener (Yenerswayway.com) endorsers Vizon. IFrom memory, I think I have the correct name. He has free tutorials on his website where he talks about and demonstrates this fondant. I found it when I was on a quest to fine suitable fondant for double barrel cakes. It looks as though this sugarpaste is just as forgiving as Carma Massa.
I believe it is quite hard to source however it is part of Barry Callebaut so perhaps anyone who carries Callebaut might have it. Here is a link http://www.tcfinefoods.co.uk/pdfStore/customersPastry.pdf.
Just scroll down the page until you get to Carmas, you'll see the information and UK phone number. You could of course email Paul and ask for his supply source.
You can buy this fondant on the following website http://www.tolletorten.com/ (translate to English in toolbar) and its EUR 46 for 7kg.
Hope this helps.

Hi buttercream babe
Thanks for the information, but want to buy in uk.
You can buy it in the UK here http://www.tcfinefoods.co.uk/
It's the same as the link I posted above with phone number.
I think the Carma Massa people are looking to distribute, suppose to be soon but it hasn't happened yet!
I love the Portuguese sugarpaste which Debbie Brown used for the cute baby tutorial, they too are supposed to be distributing, when who knows. I enquired about the Massa when Paul first used it I think on the vintage rose tutorial. I was also put off by the price and their hefy minimum order. I did post on the site back then but I can't find my original posting so couldn't link. I thought perhaps tcf would have brought their charges down by now.
We live in hopes. x
Hi I am dying to try Massa ticino sugar paste but I am having trouble finding a place that ships to Australia, anyone know who sells this and ships all the way out here?
I only buy this sugar paste. I get it from thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk
You can get it from cake stuff in the uk and get 20% off if you're a member on here and 25% if you're a pro member x
