Which gumpaste recipe on this site is easy to work with? I had Nicholas Lodges recipe but I can't find it. Does gumpaste have to rest? What is the least amount of time that you can let fondant, mmf and gumpaste rest before working with it? TIA!
I believe this is the Nicholas Lodge recipe. The current recipe doesn't credit him as the source but I printed the recipe out when it did give him credit. I've made it and it's really great.
As for allowing it to rest, it does say to allow it to mature for 24 hours in the refrigerator, if possible. I've heard that fondant should rest at least 8 hours.
That is the right recipe. It gets much stretchier overnight.
I also use the recipe. I have tried several different ones and nothing compares to Nicholas' recipe. It can be used immediately, but is easier to work with if it rests for about 24 hours. It's too stiff when first made. I love this recipe because everything holds it's shape.
nicholas lodge's recipe is the best.. i do let anything i make rest overnite.. it just works better.. fondant..g/p... modeling chocolate.. hth
