SUGAR ART INSTRUCTION AND SUPPLIES
"I know that I've said it before, but Sidney is one of my favorite people! She is so talented & artistic & all at the age of 18 yrs old. I finally got to meet her and her parents at the TN ICES weekend of sharing in Lebanon, TN this past March. I was already hooked on her isomalt, molds, & other sugar supplies. I could open a shop with all my cake toys. I have 22 of her molds, 19 silicone inserts, several colors of isomalt, & other assorted tools. You can't beat her prices and quality of her products. Check out her sale packages for the summer on Cake-Fu.com. Sidney has done several webinars with Cake-Fu and her summer package is a great value. Sidney's Dad & Mom work alongside her & always ship your order at the most economical rate. I shop primarily online and often the shipping costs are more costly than your item. If you get a chance to take a class from Sidney, be sure to do so. She has a great teaching style and is so patient and encouraging to her students. Love ya, Galpern's! Claudie Ann Brown, Sugar Artist, Franklin, TN

"Your Simi Isomalt melts so smooth and clear, does not break down when left on heat for a long period of time and for how I use it, it applies so smooth like a sheet of glass. Very user friendly for all levels. Beautiful Colors!"
Teri Tarbox-Sugar Artist/Instructor, Owner Simply Cakelicious http://www.simplycakelicious.com/
"I cannot express how much I love simi cakes molds! They work so beautifully with their isomalt as well as fondant. No bubbles or cloudiness. My brooches and and pearls where clear and shiny! Definitely a must in your mold collection"

"Simi Isomalt is the best quality, easiest Isomalt to use! Won't cloud after heating, won't loose its true color".
Karen Vazquez, Owner of Kakes by Karen Naples, FL http://www.kakesbykaren.net/
"I'm absolutely in love with Simi's Isomalt!!! My only regret is not trying it sooner! Sugar work could not be any easier than using precooked isomalt and the results it gives are amazing!
I've tried other brands is by far my favorite! Simi's product takes out the fuss so you can simply enjoy and create!"
Erin Schwartz, Owner Stacked http://www.stackedcakes.us.com/
"Watch your SugarEd (Productions) Garden Cake video last night...can't wait to play and try some of those techniques! The bird.. how cool and easy you make it look!! Thanks Sid for always being available when we have questions!!!"

"SIMI Isomalt is the clearest, easiest to use. And their colors are the most vibrant. Never really did enjoy sugar work until I discovered SIMI's isomalt, and Sidney's classes! She is an awesome teacher and so creative!" Yvette Humbert, Austin, TX, Owner Amazing Cake Artistry, Master Sugar Artist, Instructor, Judge http://www.amazingcakeartistry.com/
"Thank you so much for the 18 inch (Simi Flex Form) Silicone Strips. I made this small sculpture to test them out. They make it so easy to mould, much better than modeling clay. I'll be ordering again soon."
James Bull, Sugar Artist, Sheffield South Yorkshire, UK
"SimiCakes' pre-cooked isomalt is perfect for any skill level and any for application. It's so quick and easy to use heating in the microwave! No more hot pans on the stove top with overcooked isomalt. I've found exactly what I need for custom sugar work!"

"Playing with sugar or corn syrup can be a little tricky, not stable and a little frustrate! !! Best way to get easy, fast and totally reliable results every time is using "ready-to-use" Isomalt Tiles from simicakes.com!!!! It is pre-cooked, microwavable, and ready to use in about 45 seconds! !!! My "melted ice cubes" looked so real that one of the guest decide to put some in her drink!!!! LOL.. I have to say THANK YOU to Sidney Galpern Owner of Simi Cakes for saving my work! She is amazingly talented and for sure the BEST Isomalt Tiles to use!!!! KUDOS to Sidney and her wonderful product!!!
-Maressa Valentin De Rivera, The Sweet Chalet Cakes, Lake Mary, FL http://thesweetchalet.com/
"Simi Isomalt is wonderful to work with. The clear is clear as glass, but the gold, silver and bronze are fun and exciting. Had a great time with Sidney, Mike, and Michelle (at Cake Camp 2013) and made a great new friend of Cheryl from Edible Artists Network. Have you seen the latest copy? Sidney has a great article. This sweet girl is so talented I can't wait to see where she goes from here."
