The soft ball or fudge stage of sugar is the cold water candy test stage of boiled sugar at a temperature between 112 °C and 115 °C. To test the right temperature without a candy thermometer, drop a teaspoon of the sugar syrup in cold water. It should form a soft ball. Alternatively a small wire loop is dipped in the syrup. If you blow through the loop a big bubbles should form. The cold water candy test and the bubble test are very inaccurate. Where possible, a sugar thermometer should be used.
