Sugar box and crystal fruits

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am so happy that I finally knew how to make this sugar box, using pastillage. Pastillage is basically made from gelatine and icing sugar, suitable for making structures.

What do you think of the fruits ? Cute kan.. they are delicious too. Love modelling the little fruits. No baking required, however. The fruits are made from yellow beans paste and coated with jelly. I was told if kept in the fridge, the crystal fruits will last for about a month. If left outside in our weather, probably about 5 days. This is due to the coconut milk which is one of the ingredient. Very famous dessert in Thailand, it seems.

I’m thinking of making a few more sugar boxes and crystal fruits.. this is my first one and obviously, need more practice. Suitable for hantaran/ wedding gifts. To put lots of the little fruit or even a ring. Can’t wait to try more. :)

Hi kawan-kawan…thanks for the feedback. Kotak pastillage tu keras, not suitable to be eaten. Altho technically it is edible. Fruits tu lembik sikit, but still mcm modelling paste, Wiz. Just that you cannot make things like flowers from it, cannot make it too thin like gumpaste. It will break. So, only suitable for slightly bigger and fatter things..

alaahaiiii min bestnya dpt buat fruits tu , dah lama nak wat tak buat2 tu..gie thailand kat phuket tu byk org fruits tu

wiz says:

Min, kalau dah rajin tu, sumer buat pun jadi je. The fruits tu handling dia mcm modelling paste ke? Not that I am interested to do let alone rajin to do it but just curious. The rajin part I hand it to you.

Good job Min!!!
