I've used gumpaste only once before and remember it looking not quite white when dry? I'm about to put a gumpaste sign next to white white fondant. Am I crazy remembering this wrong, or is there a solution?
Are you using Wilton or one of the recipes with tylose? The Wilton one is not bright white.
Wilton because I felt like it was cheaper than getting ingredients. I don't use it often. Have you ever tried adding that color whitener to it?
I haven't...I've got a bottle of that stuff somewhere, but I can never find it when I need it. I keep meaning to try painting with it and see how long it takes to dry...guess I should buy another bottle next time I'm at Michaels. Of course then I will find mine
I use Nicholas Lodge's recipe because it doesn't stink and it's easier to work with...the tylose was $3.99 at the cake decorating store and there's enough in there for two batches. You can also knead the tylose into fondant. I saw that you're in TX, if you happen to be in San Antonio, American Gift Shoppe at 1604 and Blanco is where I buy tylose.
It's not white white. You will have to use white coloring or airbrush it.
