If gumpaste tastes so yucky then can I add some Lorann oil to it for better flavor? What flavor is nicer?

The reason that most people don't eat gumpaste is because it dries rock hard.

If you make it with tylose instead of gum-tex, then it doesn't have that smell (haven't tasted either one though).

gumpaste is edible but i wouldnt suggest anyone really eat it. it has wires and it was rolled and re rolled. the oil may also prevent it from drying.

You can flavor fondant with the oils, so I can't see why you couldn't do the same for gumpaste.

never heard of anyone...anyone.. flavoring g/p with anything. i never have either.. its dries so hard. who would even attempt to eat it.. i think it would change the consistency of the g/p.. make it sticky. then you would have to add powder sugar. then it could crack on you ,etc.

Wilton's premade has vanilla in it. So some have flavorings in them.

When you use the concentrated oils it doesn't take very much, so it really shouldn't affect the consistancy like adding an liquid extract. I say try it in a small bit of it, and see what happens. If anything you could have sweet smelling flowers. icon_smile.gif
