Specifically, for a gumpaste plaque for both scenarios.
- plaque that will be leaned against the cake (not attached)
- plaque that will be attached to the side of the cake
I made some plaques last night for leaning against the cake. They are about 1/4", which I think might be to thick. I'm really bad with the visual stuff.
If you use a pasta roller to roll out the gumpaste for this, what setting do you use?
Thanks so much for your help!!
I rolled out gumpaste at either a 5 or 6 in the pasta roller to make a sign. It looked good to me, but then I changed my design and ended up not using it, so I don't have a pic. I think it was between 1/8" and 1/4".
I just made a cake last weekend with gumpaste plaques. You can roll gp much thinner than you would fondant, and it takes less time to dry. My plaques were about 1/8" or a smidge less.
