Help please-I am desperate- need help with Edna's gumpaste

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, I really nees help. I am not one to make GP or fondant (which I am making tomorrow-Lord help me) and now I know the reason why.

I followed her tutorial and my GP was crumbly and very hard. I did not have a strainer or sifter for my powdered sugar- maybe this is why? It was not nice and shiny like hers in the tutorial.

Any tips or insight is appreciated-

Thanks!

Did you measure the amounts exactly? Sifting or not should not effect the texture. I made it once and it did that too. Only thing I can think of that made it that way is the weather. I've made it since and its been perfect.
Sorry your having a hard time.

Thanks Mare! I gave Linda McLures recipe a go and it came out great. I figured I'd give it a try since I couldn't go out to the store till tomorrow to get sifter.

Hi Mare! I don't think it's posted here on CC, cut if you google it, she has a 3 part tutorial on YouTube that gives the recipe and shows you how to make it. It is a little more labor intensive than Nick Lodge's but it worked for me. I'll keep you posted when I go to take it out of the fridge tonight and color it. I did not color all of it when I was making it as I only need some red right now for flowers.

I have made Edna's GP and love it. I did have problems once and I think that it is the egg white measurement. Not all eggs are equal so you might not get enough moisture. I have decided that the next time I make it, I am going to weigh the whites and keep track of what amount works best.
