Today I bought glucose and knox gelatin to make my own gumpaste. I am almost out of satin ice so before buying more I figured I would try and make my own.
Which is the best recipe?
Everyone raves about Nicholas Lodge's receipe but I can't ever find tylose and the receipe calls for it. I make one that I found in the receipes on cc.
What recipe do you use? I would love to try Nicholas Lodge but I can find tylose locally either
4 cups sifted powdered sugar (reserve 1 cup)
1 TBSP Gum-Tex
1 TBSP Glucose
4 TBSP water
Pour water in large bowl and add glucose slowly. Stir until it dissolves.(may use microwave) add sugar and gum-tex. Mix well and let sit overnight. Knead in remaining cup of powdered sugar in the morning. Sometimes I have to add powdered sugar just a little at a time until it's not sticky.
I found this in receipes on this site but didn't write down who it belongs to.
Good luck and hope it works for you.
That's the basic Wilton recipe.
Tylose is worth ordering online if humidity is an issue where you live. I can get tylose locally, but I would order it online otherwise. It's that much better than gumtex.
I am in Florida so humidity is always an issue here. What about the recipe with Knox Gelatin and glucose is that one good for humidity?
I haven't tried it. I've tried the Wilton recipe and premade Satin Ice and they don't do well for me, but the Nicholas Lodge recipe or tylose added to fondant both work well with the humidity here.
