Simi Torch Team: The Collaboration
The Simi Torch Team is made up of amazing sugar artists, cake decorators, and innovators working with Simi Isomalt!! Out of Sidney’s love for blown, pulled, cast, molded, and hand sculpted isomal, she has been lucky enough to work with some of the top sugar artists in the world and now they have decided to share all the many facets, beauty, and versatility of working with isomalt with the world! See how easy it is to incorporate isomalt into spectacular showpieces as well as everyday projects.
“I think I have a mold problem…silicone that is! I often see silicone molds as a new accessory for my isomalt station inside my studio. I found these chess pieces and have been dying to cast Simi Isomalt in them. Over the summer I saw an interesting game while attending the Star Trek convention; 3D Chess. Completely dazzled and inspired I set a goal to make a similar piece in isomalt. The entire project is Simi isomalt. There is no internal structure, all of the boards and “rods” are assembled with melted isomalt. I created the boards by printing an Icing Images iDesign checker board pattern onto Simi Transfer Sheets then I cast Simi Clear Isomalt atop. The pieces were melted clear isomalt cast in two part, 360 design molds. I used TheSugarArt Classic Gold and Nu Silver powder luster colors to dry dust each piece once cooled. The pieces are NOT attached to the project so you can actually play, you just may want to find a Vulcan to show you how. Live Long and Prosper!”
