Thank you for posting this! I used to buy it pre-made but I was finding that the corner and some on top was too hard to work with. It was expensive too! Then I found the can of gumpaste to mix at home and the works really well, but I'm gonna try your recipe!

Oh, my business is "The Icing on the Cake" here in Virginia Beach!!! Great Name!!! icon_wink.gif

Thanks for sharing, I want to try this one too. Didn't I read somewhere on here that you can use corn syrup instead of glucose? icon_rolleyes.gif

I would love to try this recipe, thanks for sharing.

Would you please let me know the quantity in grams or volume of 1 packet of Knox gelatine. I live in Australia and will have to substitute a local brand therefore need to know how much to use.

Thanks in advance.
