how do you make the "tissue paper" for cake boxes? i assume they are made from gumpaste, but is there a process to it? ie do you make the "paper" a few days in advance, leave to dry and then place it on the cake and top with lid? or do you make it and put it on the cake in position to dry? any help appreciated!
I haven't done tissue paper before, but I know that gumpaste hardens super fast, so it would probably be best to roll out and put it right where you want it. Seems to me that if you make it before hand it will just crack and break when you try to manipulate it. I try to use 50/50 gumpaste and fondant. That way I have a little while to get it perfect before it sets up.
