I thought I copied the recipe and now I can't find it; can someone please post the recipe? How soon can I use it? I need to make letters out of it and need it to be dry by tomorrow (Tuesday) at about 6:00-6:30 p.m. and I haven't even made it yet.

I forgot to add, I have been using his recipe ever since my first class with him, and I think it's the best~! Easy to make and wonderful to work with.

Has anyone ever had to refrigerate completed gumpaste decorations? I am doing a cake for this weekend and the cake needs to be refrigerated, how will this affect the gumpaste?

I have heard that gumpaste will get all soft if you put it in the fridge, but I have never tried it. You might want to experiment before you do it for a cake you are selling. icon_biggrin.gif

I agree though.. this is the BEST GP I have ever used.. just wonderful all around.

Thanks Jeanne.... duhhh icon_confused.gif , why didn't I think of that... I made some extra pieces, I can just spread some buttercream and sit a couple of pieces in it to see what happens....... thanks!

Why not just add the GP decorations when you take the cake out?

That is exactly what I would do, normally. However, this cake is being picked up Sat AM for a party on Sunday, due to the fact that I am leaving town. I would rather have the cake completely put together rather than having her transport, and place all the gumpaste decorations on it (the risk of breakage worries me). I am registered in a class at Nick's in Atlanta, and do not want to miss it...
