As i Live in Iran ,premade gumpaste is very expensive and hard to find here. I found an amazing recipe which i don't remember where did i exactly find it!:oops:

So I'm sharing it with you and i'm sure it would be very helpful for all of you specially for people who live in middle east cause it contains tragacanth.


1 pound 10x confectioners sugar

1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon gum tragacanth

1 1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder

1 tablespoon shortening

3 tablespoon glucose


combine sugar and gum tragacant in a large mixer bowl.

soften gelatin in the cold water in a heatproof glass container.

allow this to stand for 5-15 minutes.melt shortening and cool a bit.to dissolve gelatin ,place glass container with gelatin water mixture in hot water and stir it to dissolve or just put it in microwave with highest power for 40-50 seconds(be careful not to overheat).


attach mixer bowl to mixer platform.add liquid mixture.mix to combine.at first the mixture will be very soft,beat on medium speed about 5 minutes.the mixture will stiffen up.a plastic scraper helps remove the sticky ,gooey mixture .the mixture will look like a big marshmallow.if you have used the full amount of water the mixture will be soft and likewise the mixture will be firmer with the minimum water added( i add the full amount of water).place in a greased airtight covered refrigerator container.

let it rest overnight.
