tips on using gumpaste

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I haven't used gum paste before and I want to get some opinions from some other users. I'm trying to find/make an edible pencil. I want something that I can use to sketch designs on cookies that I can later go over with icing.

So the question is, would gum paste be a good option to fabricate a pencil? Is it hard enough to not break the moment a little pressure is applied? Is it chalky enough to leave a sketch?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

PS I have already tried food markers and the tips are not fine enough. I am looking for something that has an extra fine tip.

It dries very hard, but it won't make a mark on a cookie, I don't think. How about foodwriters? (The edible markers.)

I would also go with food markers. Gumpaste won't work for that.
