This is my first time using the 50/50 mix and I know from past experience that you cannot put gumpaste directly on buttercream because it will go soft. However, you can put fondant on buttercream. So....can I put the 50/50 mix on buttercream and have it hold up? Thanks so much!
I have never had a problem with 50/50 not holding up on buttercream. I have had problems with my MMF being too soft and things losing thier shpe, using the 50/50 helped with that.
Thank so much Melchas! I will give it a try
I have just the opposite experience. Fondant always wilts on my buttercream. I f I make things out of gumpaste and let them dry I have never had them go soft on my buttercream even if I put them in the fridge overnight. Just my experience.
I wonder if I hadn't let my gumpaste dry long enough? I only dried mine (tiny flowers) for about 18 hours. Casme, how long did you allow yours to dry? I love that you were able to even put yours in the fridge!
What kind of fondant and gumpaste combo are you all using?
I usually let them dry on a styrofoam board for 24 hours at least. I use the wilton gumpaste and do not add fondant, just some crisco on my hands and the ball before rolling.
