Posted by clomoThis is a fairly old recipe from a cook book that my Grandmother gave me. It seems to work well, and sets very hard.
Gum paste recipe No 1
- 1 lb 2 oz pure icing sugar 2 oz boiling water 1 1/2 level teaspoons gelatine
Thoroughly dissolve gelatine in boiling water then add half the quantity of icing sugar, knead well, add the rest of the icing sugar as required. Colour as needed.
