A typical cake icing made with sugary, syrup and gelatin. It is cooked to a specific temperature (240F), poured over a marble slab, sprinkled with water (to prevent crystallization) and then kneaded to a smooth soft paste. It is often colored and flavored and used for candies and cakes. It can be rolled out and its soft qualities enable it to be draped like fabric.
