help I am making the bed pannels for a toy story bed cake and I am loosing the will to live!!!
any tips please only ever made gum paste flowers before
what exactly is going wrong?
its just so hard to work with, I think its sticky but not to touch but when I roll it out even with icing sugar its sticks to the board and it just looks naff lol
fondant is so much easier to work with
Have you dusted the board with corn starch? Also, sometimes gumpaste gets too hot and sticky. Wrap it up in plastic wrap and come back in a half hour. Hope that helped.
does sound a bit over worked. maybe best to let it rest for a while, so it can cool down.
i use crisco on my board, but corn startch works well too as does icing sugar - depends what works best for you. but it might be worth trying something different.
what kind of gumpaste is it? store bought should be pretty fault free, but if its home made, it might be somethings been left out or the recipe is a bit off.
its store bought. I use icing sugar and it had just came out of fridge and I had worked it t bring it to room temp.
I gave up.....will only have one bed end lol
Gumpaste doesn't need to stay in the fridge, it could be that has helpe to create problems.
If you put it in the fridge, it could have condensation that is making it sticky???
I stored it as per instructions but wont do that again lol thanks everyone
