How do I fix my gumpaste?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Been trying to create gumpaste but it's too sticky! I tried freezing it but when I take it out, it goes back to being sticky. Do I need to put more sugar? Or cornstarch? Or gelatin? Help!

If the consistency is fine and it is sticky, I rub a little bit of shortening on it and knead it in. If the cosistency seems soft, then add more powdered sugar. I would not put it in the freezer. This will cause condesation on it and will remain sticky.

Use of 1 cup powdered sugar makes it non-sticky. Have You used it while making the gum-paste?

kakeladi, I tried NL gumpaste, but it too came out ROCK HARD! Maybe I beat the egg whites too long??? Do you think that would cause this result?

When I make Nic Lodge's gumpaste recipe, I don't add as much powdered sugar as it calls for - usually closer to 1 1/2 lbs for 4 egg whites. Measure to egg whites to equal 1/2 cup. I also beat in the shortening before I add the tylose. You can always knead in more powdered sugar if the dough is too soft.
