ok i'm confused as usual lol, i use the recipe for gumpaste on the back of the gum tex can, so are you using the mixed gumpaste and adding water, or are you using the powdered gumpaste and adding water thanks

I also just got the email from BK and can't wait to try it! I saw flexible royal icing on a cake show and they used it to make a spider web for a cake! How cool is that?!! icon_lol.gif

If you are referring to Lori on Amazing Wedding Cakes (and certainly, maybe you are referring to something else entirely,) she was using Sugar Veil which is a little different than what I am assuming the results of the above results will be (I'm thinking "close, but no cigar" simply because this does become a little more rigid over time.) Sugar Veil is wonderful and stays flexible, but soooo expensive for those of us who are just hobbyists. If the gumpaste trick gets me "close," I'd be a happy camper.

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

I made this today with Wilton Gumpaste Mix ..I used 1 1/3 cup of the mix and 1/3 cup of hot water and then beat the heck out of it like you do for royal icing for about 10 minutes . It worked turnewd into the sticky pipable mixture . I colored it as well !

I piped out two butterflies and some dots .

Left them to dry overnite it will be interesting to see the results.

Also awaiting answers. This would be so much fun if you can use Wilton gumpaste. Shipping on the Baker's brand is what gets me. I just received an order and then the ad came out. Darn!

Living in Hawaii I try to avoid anything to do with Royal Icing but sometimes I do need it & I really like the sound of this. Thanks for sharing.

June, just curious - why do you try to avoid anything having to do with RI because you live in Hawaii? Is it because of the heat and humidity or something else?

I tried it with the CK gum paste. I've never tried a tiara with RI before, so I didn't really know what I was doing, but it worked! I started with 1/3 cup hot water and 1 cup gum paste, but that was too watery. I just stated adding more gum paste powder till I got the consistency that looked right (sorry! I'll measure next time). I pulled it off the paper last night and nothing cracked or broke off. I'd call that a success!

Thanks to the OP. thumbs_up.gif LOVE this idea!
