Make your own “Nappage”

27 Mar


Some of you have seen me using this nappage mix in the class. Nappage is very useful to make the cake or fruits look shiny and fresh, especially for the fruits tart. In Japan, you can easily get this nappage mix and all you need to do is to boil them with water. But I haven’t found one in Malaysia. So here I’d like to introduce you a simple way to make your own nappage!


Water: 50ml

Gelatine: 3~5 gram (water 10~15 ml)

Granulated sugar: 10 gram

Soak gelatine into 10~15 ml of water. In a pot combine water (50 ml) and sugar and put onto boil. Once it’s boiled, off the fire and melt in gelatine which is well soaked into water. Apply to tart or other cakes.

Once nappage cools down, it will become hard because of the gelatine. In that case, lightly warm them in a pot (80 degree C). Do not boil them because gelatine will lose its effect once it’s over 80 degree C.

You can also replace some of the water with fruits puree or jam if you want to get some color. Like I did for this strawberry tart. I used raspberry puree to get some red color!

Please try~ ^^.
