Gum paste mix

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,
This is my first time posting in the forums but I have been a keen reader for a while now and have learned a lot from doing so icon_smile.gif

My question is in regards to CK gum paste mix. It says to grease your bowl etc when mixing it up. I assume by grease it means vegetable shortening. I live in Australia and such grease like Crisco is not readily available, especially where I live. I don't have the time to order it online unfortunately as I live in a rural area and postage is slow. Does anyone know of a suitable substitute I could use? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, anything similar will work - Trex (I think is what it's called in Australia); butter; margerine - even vegetable or oilve oil will work.

Oh ok, so I can use butter? Thanks so much. I am used to working with butter so would much rather stick with what I know anyway.
Thanks again icon_smile.gif
