I just made a nurse's hat out of gumpaste for a cake I'm doing and just realized when I put it up against the real hat that the gumpaste is ivory in color, not white. Is there a way to make it a crisp white? Maybe a spray on edible color? Please help!
Hmmm... what GP are you using? I make mine and it's very much white. You could always airbrush it with white petal dust I suppose.
I use Satin Ice and I wish I had an airbrush to just paint it. On my wish list! Thanks!
You can make your own with the Tylose recipe Nicholas Lodge has on his site. Or use the CK or Linnea's gumpaste mix (just add water). Both of these dry white. Although the Linneas is off white when mixed, it dries white also.
If you can't spray it, can you maybe dust it with white petal dust?
That's the recipe I use... it's easy as pie to make and works wonderfully too.
Honestly, your GP hat is going on a cake and no one will notice that it's not stark white. I'd just leave it as is.
