Best Homemade Gumpaste recipe? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
LOL Kakeladi, I have never heard of "12 yolk cookies" but I think I need to google that recipe...it seems that cake decorating uses a lot of egg white, and I need to do something useful with the yolks!

Well the NL Gumpaste is ready to use. I have made a few roses and the results are great! I did have to add additional icing sugar after kneading as it was a bit sticky. I think my arms gave out when I made it as I had quite a lot of icing sugar left over icon_redface.gif \\
I managed to roll the paste much thinner than my last attempt using Satin Ice fondant with Tylose added. I am actually quite proud of my first attempt icon_biggrin.gif
DH says they are "a work of art" but he's biased lol
Thanks again for all the help

You can also use meringue powder instead of egg whites to make the royal icing or even use a royal icing commercial powder mix. I got sick of having so many left over egg yolks, that is the route I have taken now. It hasn't made a discernible difference in the way the end product behaves, unlike the difference you can see when you're piping designs or doing string and extension work.

I do not want to just add Tylose to fondant.
Many thanks in advance

Is this gumpaste safe to eat cos i'm making sunflower flowers and i'm sure one of the kids will want to eat one. Just worries me cos of making it with raw egg white!

Kakeladi, What is the ratio for tylos to RI?? I always have a lot of RI left and I too hate to toss it.

After you roll out the gum paste, roll it out about 4 times in a pasta roller. I use a hand crank.

Okay, how did this thread pop up by itself? Creepy :-?

I use Linda McClure's recipe. It requires a little work but I like it and it can be rolled paper thin without any problems.
