I'm making a Glee cake for my niece. I already have the design down, but I want to add a gumpaste slushie cup. I've only done flowers with gumpaste so I'm not sure how this would work. I'm planning to buy a small pack of Dixie cups and unrolling one and using that as my base to cut out the gumpaste. Then I am going to roll the gumpaste around an uncut cup and let it harden. I'm hoping if I coat the cup in shortening my gumpaste cup will just roll off. Does this sound like it would work? It sounds so simple, but I'm nervous since it's my first gumpaste anything I've made without a tutorial to follow.
