Hi! I am new here!!! Never used or made gumpaste ever!! So i am curious about the last cup of sugar (using the willton recipe with wilton products).. are we supposed to HAND kneed that last cup in? because my paste already is so stiff! So stiff? that I am scared to put it in my mixer! And, they said a small amount of shortening could make it more manageable.. how much is a small amount?
I am only playing for learning sakes, so no worries it's no emergency!!!
Thanks so much in advance!
