Lê techniquê: How to create sugar thread



In this episode I will teach you how to create a beautiful sugar decoration called sugar nest or sugar thread without candy thermometer. Learning how to properly work with sugar will ensure a very sophisticated look to your pastries because you can create dozens of different designs using the same technique. The sugar thread technique is also known as homemade cotton candy and it's extremely delicate.

Here you can understand the difference between sugar temperatures and how the stages are called:

Soft Ball: 116º - 118ºC
Perfect for Italian Meringues

Hard Ball: 125ºC
Perfect for fondant, marzipan and marshmallow

Soft Crack: 134ºC
Perfect for nougat and taffy

Hard Crack: 145ºC
Perfect for all sorts of decorations, glazed fruits, hard candy and pulled sugar

Caramel: 160º - 182ºC
The hotter the temperature is the darker the caramel will get and the stronger the flavor will be. Perfect for brittles, pralines, glazed nuts, etc…

On the next episode of Lê techniquê you will learn how to glaze fruits, nuts and how to create caramel cage.

  5. Raiza, thank you so much for this video! I always get a little nervous when I put sugar and heat together (I have ruined too many caramel sauces :). I can't wait to try this technique to make sugar threads!

  15. From the first video of yours that I saw all the way up to the present tense, its been[ Pure fun in the kitchen, full of brightness and color, delightfully informative, funny, and interesting with exotic personality in every desert; made with talent. ]Actually a "Dulce Delight"! Just as the title describes it --a dulce delight! I remember I sent it out immediately to my children, my sisters, and even showed my husband! The sentence that describes Dulce Delight is within the brackets.
    I wish you the best, you brighten my day with your talent, its obvious to me that you are a success because you "delight " in your work.Thank you for sharing it with me and my family through your wonderful website. Sincerely, Robbin in Puerto Rico
