This is such good information. Thanks to all of you who have done the experimenting for us!

It is the humidity Marianna, it is not always bad & we have less humidity on Kauai than the other islands, but it does cause the sugar to melt sometimes. There are not many homes in Hawaii that have air conditioning so we are really exposed to the elements inside & out. I have learned to deal with it & have lovely ceiling fans which help a lot.

I did it! I am not the best person to report on it though. I have yet to try a royal icing crown. I did little tiara's for my daughter's cupcakes. I had minimal breakage.

I'm having trouble with posting the pix, my 2 year old son is "helping" me. But it's in my pictures. Cupcakes with tiara's for my daughter's 5th birthday.

Does anyone have timings on how long you have for all the stages??
Liquid enough to pipe ...
Firm, but soft enough to bend ...
Firm, to stand up ...

This is very interesting - thanks for posting.

Does anyone have pictures? I haven't gotten around to trying it yet because of stinkin nursing school! I can live vicariously through someone if I saw pictures. I might just rebel against the books and try it tonight. But in the mean time, any pictures?

Can anyone who tried this using the Wilton gumpaste mix tell us what your results were? I keep putting off buying the mix until I have some feedback on if it worked or not. Thank you.

I make my gumpaste using both the Wilton mix and the CK Products mix, by making two separate batches then kneading them together. I've had great success with that. Both of them individually I find make the petals crack and break too easily, but mixing both gumpastes I've had wonderful results with.

Unfortunately you cant do the handwriting as it would be a mirror image.. so the words would be backwards when you tried to apply to your cake.. icon_biggrin.gif

Unless you printed the writing in a mirror image, therefore making it appear correctly once applied. icon_biggrin.gif

OP: Great idea! I might have to give this a try. I'm adding it to my list of "things I have GOT to try."
