    Using an electric mixer, beat gelatine mixture on high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in hot sugar syrup, pouring down the side of the bowl in a slow steady stream. Continue beating for around 15 minutes or until mixture is very fluffy and almost stiff. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle.
