I bought the l lb container of gumpaste that you mix with water. On the directions it only gives how to mix the entire container. I dont need the whole amount for the cake Im doing.. Does anyone have a link or know what the amounts of water vs mix for maybe a 1/4 of the pound.? TIA

What brand is it? And how much water does it call for for the entire pound?

Couldn't you just use 1/4 of the water it says to use?

Its the Wilton brand, and it calls for a 1/4 cup for the entire pound. Not sure if what a 1/4 of a 1/4 is. No math skills here..

I would try three to four tablespoons. I would not add it all at once and see what the consistancy is. I would never use the Wilton gumpaste so I have no clue how its suppose to be when its done. If its anything like their fondant, its going to be hard to work with no matter what!

id say that sounds like 1/8 of a cup to me?

Well, if 1/4 cup is the same as 2 ounces, which is the same as 4 Tbsp, then dividing that in fourths would be 1 Tbsp.

I had that memorized, because it's easy enough to remember that 1 cup of water is 8 ounces, but LOL, could have Googled that and had your answer instantly.
