I'm making a large, carved Apple cake which I found in Squires Kitchen's magazine. It calls for CMC to add to the sugar paste for modelling. I don't have time to order on line as the cake needs to be ready on Tuesday. My only option is my little local kitchen shop, which has a small cake decorating section. They have gum tragacanth and gum arabic. could i substitute either of these?
Gum trag will work!
Yep, gum trag. Mix it in and let the paste rest for at least 12 hrs. so it can activate.
thanks! How much should I use?
