Gum glue is an edible glue that we use to glue things together...like we glue leaves to a flower and so on. Some people take gumpaste and drop a bit into water and then stir it around. Others take fondant and do the same.

Sometimes you can use water or just vanilla.

Hope this helps!

I also use the gumpaste to make gum glue. I take a small amount, maybe a small marble sized amount, and pull it apart into tinier bits. Then, I put in a tablespoon or two of water and stir until dissolved. It can take a while for all the gumpaste to dissolve, so plan on making it an hour or so before you need it. We were told to store this glue in the fridge when not in use, for up to a week.
