Spun sugar decorations are way easier than you ever realised. Here’s how to make them.

200 grams / 1 cup super-fine sugar

Prepare a baking sheet with a silicon mat or wax paper.

Melt the sugar in a pan, stirring until it has completely melted into caramel.

Allow to cool slightly, then begin to pull your sugar decorations.

With the back of a ladle coated in a bit of vegetable oil, drizzle the caramel over the baking sheet, creating any shape you like. Trim any excess pieces and allow to cool before carefully removing.

For a sugar disc, drizzle the caramel in a circular motion over the baking sheet, and allow to cool completely.

For the spiral, make sure the caramel is slightly cooler and holding its shape. Twirl the sugar around a steel knife-sharpening blade to create tight spiral effect.
