I made my first batch of NL gum paste recipe about a month and a half ago. I used half when it was fresh and loved it . I just took the other half out of the fridge. It was wrapped in plastic, then put in 2 plastic bags. The gum paste seems a little gritty(?) now. I made a bow last night and this morning when it dried, it's rough like fine sandpaper. Should I knead more shortening into it than normal and maybe knead it a little longer. Maybe it dried out a little, I know I have read lots of people use it months after if frozen or refridgerated. Thanx!
