“We are beyond thrilled to be working with these decorators! They are all so sweet and talented and we wanted to sponsor and support what they are doing for the sugar arts community,” said Michelle Galpern from Simi Cakes.

Sidney Galpern, the ever humble 17-year-old CEO of Simi Cakes, said “We really want to convey that we are so blessed to be working with these three talents! We are extremely excited that they want to work with Simi Isomalt.”

Simi Isomalt was introduced to the sugar art world just eight months ago by Simi Cakes and has proved to be a popular product among sugar artists who work with isomalt.

Isomalt is the popular name for Isomaltitol which is a sugar substitute made from beet sugar. Over the past twenty years, chefs, sugar artists and confectioners have found that Isomalt has many advantages over sugar especially when making showpieces, cake decorations, dessert garnishes and candy. Unlike conventional sugar, isomalt is much more resistant to humidity and crystallization so decorative elements made with it have a longer shelf life and structural integrity.

Simi Cakes does all of the manufacturing of Simi Isomalt and has recently expanded their manufacturing space to keep up with demand.

Simi Isomalt is now available in vibrant and metallic colors and is available for sale at, and in several baking specialty stores across the country. They will also have a booth at Cake Camp 2013 where Simi Isomalt will be available.
