Help with gumpaste :( - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hmmm, ok so the fondant (sugarpaste) ones I made I left for 7 days and they still broke with not much pressure. 

 

I was adding tylose to fondant, not to gumpaste. I thought fondant + tylose = gumpaste but someone else has now said noooo. So I *think* fondant + tylose = modelling paste which holds it's shape but doesn't set up really hard (and therefore breaks). Flower paste sets up much harder, I'm going to try that when I have a bit of time to experiment.... needs to be soon before the xmas rush!

 

Thanks for all the replies, it's both interesting and confusing :D

Fondant + tylose/CMC is modeling paste, NOT gumpaste!

 

If you roll your gumpaste/flowerpaste really thin it will dry faster.
