I am making white peonies. I use a combination of Bakels and Wilton gumpaste whenever I do flowers or bows. The color looks cream. Any suggestions on how to make the gumpaste really white? I've tried adding bright white color, but that didn't work. Any help would be great!

seems to me that pre-made wilton's gumpaste is pretty white...i wonder if you should just use one instead of both?

White petal dust or white luster or white super pearl brushed on.

I find that Wilton fondant is really white. When I make gumpaste, I use a mixture of Wilton fondant and Satin Ice gumpaste. I find it white enough.

The whitest gumpaste I have used is the recipe from Nicholas Lodge (using tylose) it is a beautiful white - if you compare it to the wilton (any type of wilton) you can see a huge difference IMO.
