Anybody have a good recipe for gum paste? I just want to make the number "30" for a birthday cake this weekend so I am just looking for a small recipe that's fairly simple not costly. And how long in advance can I make it, how do I store it, just let it sit out? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I like Nicholas Lodge's recipe found here;

If you do not have quick access to Tylose, I would recommend buying ready-made Wilton gumpaste with a coupon from Michael's, AC Moore, etc. Feel the bag and be sure the gumpaste feels soft and mooshy.
