I hope that someone reading this has made this recipe before. I have a question about one of his instructions:
"Adding enough of the reserved powdered sugar to form soft but not sticky dough."
His instructions before this tell me to keep 1 cup of reserved powdered sugar to the side for this step. My question is, do I add the entire 1 cup of reserved sugar to the paste as I knead it in, or do I just add enough until it is the correct consistency??
I appreciate your help!!
I just made some yesterday. I add a little powdered sugar at a time and knead until it is the right consistency. I didn't use all the powdered sugar. It seems to vary each time I make it, maybe depending on the humidity.
I love this gumpaste. It is my favorite.
I rarely use the entire reserved cup. Just knead in enough to keep it from sticking to your hands. It is my favorite recipe, too
I appreciate the help!
One more question. Do you wait the full 24 hours in the fridge before use? I am going to be shy a few hours of the 24 mark, will I be ok?
i do like the others... but ... i use lite coating of shortening on my hands.. sometimes.. i don,t even need to use any of the extra sugar. sometimes i do.. i put the shortening on my hands.. and it helps so much to get all the dough from the mixer.. hth
You will be just fine on not waiting the full 24 hours. I have used this fondant right after I made it, but I like it better after it has been in the fridge a few hours. Overnight is even better.
