Using the recipe below - can I just use corn syrup for the glucose? Does it really have to rest overnight? How much does this make? I might half the recipe; I just need to make a few accent pieces. Thanks!


Serves/Yields: 1 Batch
Prep. Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Category: Fondant/Gumpaste/Sugarpaste
Difficulty: Easy

I used this recipe for flowers or any other decorating idea which needed a fast drying gumpaste. Batch can be doubled or tripled.

1 Lb Powdered Sugar Fine -10X plastic bag
1 Packet Knox Gelatin
2 TBS of Lemon juice
3 TBS of Water
1 Tsp of Glucose

Add gelatin, water & juice over double boiler; dissolve about 5 to 7 minutes. Add glucose stir. Use a mixer with dough hook. Place sugar in mixer then add liquid mix until slightly together remove and knead. If it feels too sticky add a little more sugar. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in plastic bag, seal. Let rest over night.

Yes, you can use corn syrup. Glucose is just a thicker version of corn syrup (clear).
