COOKBOOK: Mag Recipe
This is a great way to decorate a cake! You can make them as thick or as thin as you like. Super easy to make! When working with toffee, the colour in the pan can be deceiving. Toffee keeps cooking and if left too long it will change to a very dark colour and almost have a burnt smell to it. I probably could have left it boiling for a further min but I wanted to be able to see the redness on the toffee come through.
Toffee shards make a great deco on any basic cake or when serving a cup of ice-cream or sundae to your guests.
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of water
food colouring of your choice
Pour sugar and water in a pan over low heat. Bring it to boil without stirring. Allow it to boil until you can see its beginning to change colour (approx 5-7mins).
Pour it over greaseproof paper or directly onto a baking mat. Add some drops of food colouring and with a skewer, spread to form a marble like effect. Work with it quickly as it will start to set. Allow it to set completely and break into pieces
