How to make Flexible Royal Icing:
We have discovered a great secondary use for our new gumpaste mix. You can make a flexible royal icing out of it. Have you ever piped royal icing out onto parchment paper to make cake decorations, only to have most of them break prior to use? Well, here's your answer: Simply mix 1 cup of our TBK gumpaste mix with 1/3 cup hot water, beat well with an electric mixer, (it will be soft) and use to pipe out designsonto lightly greased parchment paper. Print out designs or monograms from your computer, lay under the parchment, and trace. Allow to dry overnight, and the pieces will be flexible and "rubbery". The vegetable gums in the gumpaste mix are the cause of this. Also works great for piping out rope borders or strings of pearls, then pick them up and stick on your cake! It is a little too soft to make royal icing roses out of it, but piped designs are perfect! Works on the white or chocolate gumpaste mix. The chocolate comes out a little stringier, but it's worth the trouble for such fantastic results!"
I got this same email today too, I would also like to know if it would work with any other gumpaste mix, for all others that try Please let us know.
