Nicholas Lodge Gumpaste Recipe anyone...???? - Page 3

post #31 of 38

Generally, tylose will give you a somewhat stiff paste and gum trag gives you a more stretchy, silky paste.  The two types of paste mixed together, to me, are pretty perfect.

 

As for fixing dry paste, shortening won't help.  Nick advises that you add in a bit of fresh egg white.

Yes, you can substitute three tsp tylose for the gums in it.

I can not find tylose anywhere. Is there anything I can use in place of it?

So the next day I used the royal icing I had made in class and just added the Tylose to it and I hade perfect gumpaste.

Plus over the yrs I got to where I seldom let it 'ripen' in the firg for that 24 hrs - often used it right away.

this makes fantastic flower paste - i did it by accident once - my head was on something else and i just added the tylo to it and used it - it roles REALLY thin and resists breaking when dry.

I sell it in my shop online, and I know that you can get it at many cake supply shops online. Are you in the US or a different country? In the US you can get it from cakedeco.com among other places.

I have and it worked just fine - i put it through the sieve with the sugar twice to ensure it was well mixed.
