Hi! Has anyone had trouble with Bakels gumpaste not drying completely? I was using some for a cake on Saturday and left it out to dry overnight and it was still pliable the next day...
Anyone know why it wouldn't dry or had the same problem?
Could be humidty, could be rolled too thick and needs more time to dry. I usually allow a couple of days, if not more, to dry.
It's beem a number of yrs since I used it and unless they have changed the formula it **WILL NEVER** dry!
kakeladi, i'm glad to hear that someone else had the same problem and it's the gumpaste and not something i was doing wrong... i guess i won't be buying that gumpaste again.
I use and don't have any problems with it drying.
That's what I use and I've never had trouble with drying. If it's a thicker piece it may need a couple days, but thin flowers dry overnight or quicker in my experience.
i cut out numbers that were between 1/8 and 1/4 an inch think and they still didn't dry after at least 48 hours. is this normal? does it really need longer than that to dry completely?
I had a huge problem the first time I used Bakels gumpaste. I made all my flowers/decorations for a cake and they dried very nicely. Then a week or so later we had very rainy weather. The gumpaste got really moist again and all the flowers looked wilted. I tried to get it dry again with no success. Since then I have used a different brand. So, maybe it was just that one batch-who knows.
I bought Bakels before.... once. As a pp said, it WILL NEVER DRY. Who in their right mind formulates GUM PASTE that will never dry??
