What is Transfer Paste. . .
Transfer paste is a paste consisting of four simple ingredients and the coloring or flavouring of your choice. You are able to either pipe different design onto silicon paper with a piping bag. Or you can simply spread the paste onto the whole piece of silicon paper and create patterns but removing the paste with a scraper. The only limitation this great paste has, is the limitations of your imagination and artistic ability. As you might have seen with my previous post of the Japoniase I created a green pattern on the outside of the meringue. The way I managed to do this was by simply spreading the paste on the silicon paper and then using the back of a spoon and scraped off the extra paste. I also used macha to not only flavour the paste but also give it that stunning green color.
Note: If you wish to make your transfer paste a different flavour, simply substitute that for the macha. If its a liquid only use half of the amount so the paste does not get too loose.
You can also use this for Swiss Rolls.
I would love to see what kind of pattern you guys come up with. So simply go post it on my Facebook page or tweet it and mention @chefdewetv in the tweet. You can also find me on Instagram @chefdewetv.
