Having cakes and chocolates for dessert is an old-fashioned thing! Why don’t you sweeten and spice up your romance this Valentine’s Day with edible lingerie.
Wondering how lingerie can be edible? Unhooked spills the beans on this unusual yet romantic savoury. Edible lingerie is a candy product which is made into a form and can function as lingerie that is edible. An interesting trivia is that, new and strange that this product may seem to us, it has been there in the market since 1975 by the name of ‘candypants’!
G-string edible bras and panties studded with pink, yellow, green and blue candies are available at affordable prices at various lingerie stores and e-commerce websites like www.zivame.com www.lingeriediva.com www.unique-gifts.spencersonline.com and many more.
If shopping for edible lingerie is not your thing, and cooking is, then here is the recipe for cooking up a customized edible lingerie. You can make these tempting bras and panties at home in no time.
Edible Caramel Lingerie
10-inch plastic coated icing bags
A variety of small opening decorating tips for icing
Lingerie, to use a template
1 stick butter
1-1/8 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup dark Karo syrup
1/2 cup condensed milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1: To create a template, stretch a piece of lingerie over a sheet of wax paper and trace its outline with a felt tip pen. Fold the paper or mat in half to check that its shape is symmetrical. Attach the smallest tip to a nonstick icing bag and set aside.
Step 2: To concoct the caramel, combine the butter and sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the Karo syrup and evaporated milk. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until the mixture starts to thicken. Test the thickness by spooning threads of it onto a piece of wax paper.
Step 3: Let mixture cook for 5 minutes – the caramel should be pliable, but not too liquidy. Caramel should be runny enough to pass through the small tip of the icing bag but thick enough to hold its shape.
Step 4: Holding the icing bag in a dish towel, spoon about 1/2 cup of hot caramel in the bag. Press top of bag together and fold or twist it to close. Squeezing from the top down, drizzle the caramel in a lacy pattern within your lingerie template on the wax paper.
Step 5: Work quickly because the caramel will thicken as it cools and will be too viscous to pass through the tip. If it does get too thick, scrape it back into the pot on the stove and reheat until its runny again.
Step 6: To attach the different pieces of lacework once you have filled the template, you will need stronger pieces of caramel to act as connectors.Place a larger decorating tip in another icing bag and fill it with caramel that has been reheated a number of times. Squeeze out 6 thick long ropes of caramel and lay them next to each other on a sheet of wax paper.
Step 7: As the ropes cool and stiffen, attach two of them to the top of the caramel lace bra (one on each side) with dabs of hot caramel – these will go up over the collarbones to attach behind the neck. Attach two to the sides of the caramel lace bra (one on each side) with dabs of hot caramel – these will go around the ribcage and attach in the back. Attach two on the top sides of the caramel lace undies – these will go around the hips to attach in the back. It is up to you if you want to attach another rope at the bottom of the undies to go underneath and connect with the other two ropes in the back (making the ultimate string bikini).
Step 8: Set caramel lingerie in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to cool and harden. When you remove it from the freezer, it should not feel sticky and will easily peel off the wax paper. To wear, peel bra off of wax paper and put it in place on your body, then let someone else connect the straps behind your neck and back.
Just remember to refrigerate this yum lingerie until it’s time to whit your partner’s tastebuds. Have a delicious Valentine!!
