I had some sugar syrup left, so I thought I would try to do sugar art for the first time. I’m here to tell you, it’s not as simple as they make it look on GBBO! I’m honestly not sure how you’re supposed to get the sugar traceries out of the bowls without breaking them.
The bowls are greased, but the sugar seemed to cling anyway — maybe I should’ve been more careful to grease the rim too?
The sugar also collected at the base, which is okay, but not the tracery I was hoping for. I think that might be because it was still a little too hot and liquid, though — this was at 300-degrees F (for the lollipops), and maybe sugar art should be at a slightly lower temp?
