Is it better to use gum paste for bows (if I want a full looking bow that will somewhat harden in order to hold shape) or fondant mixed with gumpaste, or fondant and gum tex??? Any help would be appreciated!! Thank you!!
depends on how hard you want it, gum paste/fondant, make your loops and put them in their sides oh same for both, gumpaste will dry much faster, i use alot of crisco when mixing both and working with it. if you use gumpaste i'd cut it alot thicker, so they won't crack, personally i like the 50/50
I use fondant with just a small amount of tylose added. I can roll the fondant pretty thin. I hang the loops over 1/2" pvc pipe to dry. Hanging them over the pipe keeps them perfectly shaped. After my loops have dried, I use candy melts to put the loops together into a bow.
I like using a mixture of gumpaste and fondant. I prefer the consistency and it dries strong.
I use 50/50 gumpaste/fondant.
I find it easier to mix tylose with fondant so that is what I use!
