I just made my very first gum paste, and had been hoping to start on flowers this evening. I used the recipe from Nicholas Lodge for gum paste, and after you double seal it in two plastic bags, the recipe states to keep it in the fridge for 24 hrs. Do I really need to let it mature this long? Does anyone know? Any help appreciated. thanks....

I have some in my fridge now!! If you can wait as close as possible to 24 hours it would be good. However, if you are a few hours off it will be ok!

This is a great recipe. It works great. Off subject but I went to the Nicolas Lodge retail store in Atlanta today..... OMG I could have spent hours and thousands of dollars !!!!!!!!!!

If you let it rest that long, it's a lot easier to knead and a lot stretchier, but if you're not doing something where you need to roll it very thin, you could probably use it already.

Don't rush Gum Paste or Fondant.
