Cold porcelain is a modelling medium that some cake decorators use to make figurines, models and cake ornaments. Although it is non-toxic, it should not come into contact with any item that is going to be eaten.

Bascially, cold porcelain in cornstarch and white glue. I use it to make display flowers because it is stronger and the flowers will not break as easily as gum paste flowers. You work with it the same as you would gum paste.

I made these with CP last week and sent for my sister in Florida. She normally orders the paste up there for me. I find it tricky to make.

I've been making sugar flowers since around 1995, I seldom work with CP though.
