I just saw a video on today. Once on the page, scroll down to lower right hand corner and there are several videos to watch about gum paste.

My personal preference is Nicholas Lodge's gumpaste recipe.

I only use fondant mixed with Tylose & Cream of Tartar. I have not bought gumpaste for years.

I am using Satin Ice's premade gumpaste right now, but several CC-ers have recommended Nicholas Lodge's, so I plan to make that and try it soon.
