Sugar Showpiece Exam

Today our skills on sugarwork were once again tested. Contrary to what I have said before, I now enjoy sugarwork and was able to make better looking flowers and sugarballs for my showpiece. I wish we had more lessons on this as I have come to take pleasure in doing it.


The decorations for the showpiece are made from water, sugar and glucose heated at 160-162 degrees Celcius. Tartaric acid is added when the syrup reaches 155 degrees celcius . To stop the temperature of the syrup from rising, it is plunged in ice water. The syrup is poured into SILPAT to let it cool a bit. When the edges have cooled off, the folding starts. When it has stabilized ( this means it doesn't spread out easily) , the cooked syrup is rolled and pulled many times until it becomes shiny. This process is called Satinage.

The base is also made from the same mixture but without Tartaric Acid as this will soften the candy syrup if added. It is cooked at the same temperature as the pulled sugar.

The syrup being cooked.

  7. The quality of education of the child will determine the quality of life in nation. As iterated in: "In ancient shadows and twilights where childhood had strayed, the world's great sorrows were born And its heroes were made. In the lost boyhood of Christ was betrayed" therefore, education is compulsory, compulsory education is one of the essentials for stability of democracy, social integration and to eliminate social evils. Thus Right to education Act is one such step taken by the government to fulfill its responsibility in achieving the aforesaid goals. This paper does not provide very deep information pertaining to the act, but only those provision which have been much debated. It further suggests certain changes which are possible and if taken into account will for sure result in the betterment of the act. In this paper a comparison has been made, between the provisions of the act, its implementation and effects with those real life problems, by way of a background story being narrated by a young boy about his childhood experiences. Although this Act has been legislated with a bonafide intention by the government but still it seems to be a fraud in guise of welfare. acim blog
