Anybody ever make a bowl out of gumpaste or know how to without the gumpaste sticking to the actual bowl?
Coincidentally, I just made one yesterday. I used clear wrap on the actual bowl and left the gumpaste layer dry overnight. It came right off without getting damaged. I am now letting the inside dry until tomorrow.
Thank you for the quick reply.
Wow, this is a very interesting idea! What do you plan on doing with the completed bowls? Please, please post pics when you're done!
My wife has an order for a cake to look like a countertop with baking utensils on it lol. I am her researcher lol. I don't think she comes on here much because she is always to busy so I come on quite a bit to get ideas and actually found nothing on the bowl idea.
Dust the actual bowl with cornstarch and mold the gumpaste into it. I would let dry overnight if possible so that it can hold up its shape. Separate and dust off any excess cornstarch with a pastry brush. Good Luck!
When I make mine, I just spray the back of a real bowl with non-stick coating, wipe it lightly and then put gumpaste over it and let it dry over night. It slides right off in the morning. I always let it dry for a few more hours after that so the inside is as dry as the outside.
