I love his gumpaste! It's the only one I use. Oh, I make it too icon_razz.gif I use the recipe on his site. It is soooooo easy to make. I'm the first to tell you I'm lazy. If it's easier to buy something than make it, I'm the first to do it. I wouldn't dream of buying gumpaste - it's soooooo quick and easy to make!!!

FYI: I keep about a 1/2-1/4 lb of sugar reserved and mix it in as I see fit.

Chelleb1974...just so I can understand correctly. You do not add all of the sugar at once. You reserve about 1/2pnd on the side and just wait and see if you need it?? Or do you add all of the required sugar first, and then have an extra 1/2 pnd on the side just in case icon_confused.gif

His instructions say to reserve one cup of powdered sugar from the 2 pounds the recipe calls for.

Some people, depending on climate, have to use less powdered sugar than what the recipe calls for, so they take out more from the 2 pounds and use only what they need to knead in to get to the desired consistency.

You will not likely have any problems, so just take a cup out of the 2 pounds and proceed with the recipe. icon_smile.gif
