im just wondering what the beat way to turn fondant to gumpaste. want to make a baby carriage topper and i need gumpaste.
gum paste recipe is totally different than fondant, you can fine recipe for gum paste on the back of the gum tex can, you might be talking about 50/50 that's what i use when making figurines/animals. gum paste is very fragile to work with, it has to connect at many point's you can do it on parchment, paper, or wax paper, and in layers so it holds up. and very carefully remove after a few day's to make sure it completely dry so you might want to make a few it breaks easily . or use the one recipe of fondant and 1 gum paste recipe and mix togerather good luck i use an easy fondant marshmallow fondant recipe
Gumpaste is so easy to make - and so much stronger and faster drying than fondant. I don't understand why people mess with trying to make fondant more like gumpaste. Just make gumpaste, and you'll be sure what you're getting. I swear by the Nicholas Lodge recipe. It's the best! Stronger and whiter than other recipes.
I add 1 tsp. of Tylose powder to 12 oz. of fondant. Works very well for me.
I used to buy Wilton gumpaste, which I really didn't like working with. Then I took a Lorraine McKay figure making class and learned the "tylose to fondant" recipe and it's great! I don't have to worry about having both fondant and gumpaste around...just the fondant!
