I tried making a gum paste bow and rolled gum paste roses for my niece's bday cake for Saturday but the gum paste keeps craking. When I rolled it out to make the roses the edge is all cracked not smooth. When I roll out the gum paste for the bow it stays smooth up until I fold the bow over and pinch the end. Then it cracks. I figured the corn starch was drying it out so I added crisco but it's still cracking. Help!!! Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
