I'm pretty sure icing sugar and confectionary sugar are the same thing. Take a little piece of gumpaste and let it dissolve in some water. maybe some one will reply that can tell you exactly how. hope this helps icon_smile.gif

Gumpaste glue: 1/4 tsp of gumpaste in 2 TBSP water. break gumpaste into very small pieces and let dissolve in the water.

Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

Yes, Icing sugar is the same as confectionary sugar. Also, you can make gum glue with either hot water & tylose powder or gum arabic.

WOW- i didn't know that about your sugars.
Our Castor Sugar is grainy/gritty and our pure icing sugar (your confectionary sugar) is so smooth and dissolves instantly when on our tongue.

If you scroll up and look just underneath the tabs, you'll see the word "SEARCH." If you click it, you will be able to search for many wonderful things. If I recall correctly, the search image on the homepage does not function, but I use the search feature by clicking the word almost daily, so I can tell you that it definitely does work. A search just now for "gum glue" pulled up many discussions on the subject. icon_smile.gif

Thanks, I tried both search "areas". The computer goes thru all the motions but when it is done, my page is blank.

Ok wait--a CakeBuddy is laughing at me 'cause I said egg white.
It's really egg white and a little water but...

That's what I use--we're talking about gluing flower petals together?
Gum paste glue? Egg white and water.

Lots of people use egg white to glue gum paste flowers together.
Scott Clark Wooley comes to mind...I'm sure there's tons of others.

tiggerjo - I often have the same problem with the search function. I get recipes and gallery photos but nothing under the "forums" for topics that I know have been covered. I am glad you were able to get an answer on the gum glue. icon_smile.gif
