you just add water and sugar, thought it would be easy. haven't tried yet, I am using for baby mary jane shoes, maybe bows flowers etc. Do you think this is good by it self (not to eat) should I make this batch but add MMF also
How long can I make before it doesn't crack...how long un covered before or should I cover while waiting to put on cake.
never use anything but mmf before so this is going to be a test for me.
Are you talking about the gum paste mix?
If so, that stuff is terrible, IMO!
It takes a lot of time to knead in the powdered sugar, and it is very hard if you don't microwave it a few seconds every few minutes as you knead.
Also, it's not white! It's tan.
Plus, it stinks...smells like vinegar to me!
I really prefer the Wilton gumpaste that is already made even though it's more expensive.
I will be coloring it pink, They didn't have any pre made in stock, this is all I got :( Wonder if I make this half it and then make my mmf and use half that wonder if that would be ok and hold the shoes firm.
I gave up trying to knead the whole batch that one recipe makes. I break a bit off and knead that into fondant when I need to use it! My batch has stayed good for the last month so far, sealed up very well.
so you just add maybe a 50/50 and it works...holds it's shape
Yes, I do 50/50.
