Recipes & Ingredients

A thick sugar paste, similar to gum paste, that can be molded into different shapes and forms. When dried, it is hard and brittle. Unlike gum paste, pastillage dries much quicker and stronger. Made with gelatine, water...[read more]

Royal icing is a hard white icing, made from egg white and icing sugar (mix or pure). A little addition of an acidic substance like lemon juice, citric acid or cream of tartar, the texture of the icing can be improved....[read more]

  • Hi i wanted to know how strong would the gazebo be? Ie would ot be safe enough to travel with it long distances to venue? How can one be sure that it wont crack or fall apart on route?

    • Serdar Yener

      If you travel for long distance you can use wooden skewers wrapped with rolled pastillage instead twisted plain pastillage for the posts . Thanks

  • Hello Mr.Yener. I made the gazebo and followed thoroughly the instructions but my lattice royal icing collapsed because they never dried well although I left them 5 days to dry. I think my royal icing is bad but I do not know why? It is not gluey why? Not sticky I mean

    • Serdar Yener

      Hi sorry to hear that. If your royal icing is not sticking together that means the layers are dried before joined. I will suggest adding little more egg white may solve the problem. The other thing you can do, next day carefully remove the top plastic sheet and let it dry for another day. Thanks for the question.

  • Hello please may I know of what material is your window template?

    • Serdar Yener

      I did not understand what you mean with “window” but I think you want to know about soft plastic templates. I am using file covers for ticker once or file separators for thinner need. If I am not answering your question. Please ask again with an example. Thanks

  • Hello Chef, just want to ask how long the gazebo will last? Is it still possible for gazebo will melt even when its already dried and hard? Thanks

  • Eleni Antoniou

    Great lesson, greater teacher. Thank you

  • Hello I am from the Nina67 italia.ho contact acquired the sugar gazebo cool tutorial , I wanted to ask you a few things : how long must dry the components ? Overlapped those on board I have to dry them ? Grilles made ​​with real ice how long to dry ? I d oil spry you can substitute with vegetable oil ? thank you ( I do not understand the English language I find it hard to understand ) thanks very much hope to succeed in business

  • Nit picking a little haha, but…how do you get into the gazebo? (Shouldn’t there be a panel with a entrance?)
    Beautiful work though! I can’t wait to try it! Thank you!

  • Great tutorial chef! Thank you for sharing your skills with us! I took your idea and went to an Office Supply store and bought a package of magnetic sheets (4 for $10). These have a flexible magnet on one side and vinyl on the other, and are designed to be used with an inkjet printer. You can print out an image and then stick the magnet to your refrigerator, for example. Anyway, I cut out your template for the gazebo’s side panels out of these sheets and secured them to a galvanized steel sheet from the hardware store (about $4)! No need to play with plastic sheets and a water spritzer!

  • Thank you Serdar for a fantastic video, just love your tutorials and the special techniques which you use, will be trying this for christmas.

  • Looking forward to this gazebo tutorial very much, I’m thinking of doing a miniature version on a pole as a dovecot, with birds of course! Looks fabulous in the picture. Thank you in advance.
