Jacican's Story

Jacican is your bespoke food experience, a place to learn, share and eat. Join me from 9am - 5pm Friday, Saturday or Sundays for lunch or high tea.

Jacican can host your small private dinner, family get together or work function. I can also tailor make a private class, meal or corporate training event to you or your organisations needs.

Adult cooking classes will take your cooking to the next level. Whether it’s the secret of the perfect macaron, cream torte or even handmade lollies, I can be your guide. I’ll even teach your littlies during my school holiday Kids in the Kitchen classes.

Jacican Musk Sticks recipe

My nine-year-old niece told me about this recipe, asking if I could get her some musk flavour.  You can't really make musk sticks without musk flavour, can you now?  Last time she visited, she brought along her copy of Donna Hay's Cooking with Kids magazine so, together, we could make the musk sticks.       

I now teach all kids how to make these musk sticks at my Kids in the Kitchen cooking class - Lollies, every school hoildays. But I don't want the adults to miss out. There is now a Lollies for Grown Up cooking class as well


  • 640 grams of icing sugar, sifted 
  • 1 teaspoon gelatine
  • 1 teaspoon glucose
  • 75 ml water
  • 1 ml of musk flavour
  • pink food colouring

 The ingredients for Jacican's Musk Sticks


Combine water, glucose and gelatine in a small saucepan and heat until gelatin has dissolved.  You may want to mix it as it heats up.

Dissolving the gelatin when making Musk Sticks

Put the icing sugar in the bowl of a Mix-master with a K beater. Add the water. Mix in three stages, mixing well between stages.

Beat until very well combined, then add your musk flavour and your desired amount of pink food colouring.

Adding the musk flavour

Transfer to a piping bag with nozzle.  I use a 7mm star nozzle. Pipe onto baking paper-lined trays.

Leave in a cool spot to dry out, away from hungry hands and mouths.  The original recipe said to dry for 22 hours, but the last lot I made took five days to dry out completely. It depends on the temperature and humidity.

Now I make musk sticks in many flavours - bubblegum, orange, strawberry, peppermint and don't forget musk. You can sample my musk sticks at Jacican's Sunday High Tea or pick a bag or stick next time you see me at the Warragul Farmers Market.
