I am in the process of making a gumpaste baseball cap for the top of a cake. I have a fair amount of gumpaste glue on the surface of the cap. How can I cover this? If I paint the cap tomorrow with petal dust, will that cover it? Since it's for a little boy, I don't want to put anything glittery or shimmery on the cap. Please, I'm hoping I didn't ruin this. I don't feel like starting over.
Anyone? I'm desperate for advice!
Try rubbing a bit of PS on a spot. I know it removes the shine from a lot of things.
I'm sorry - I should have mentioned that it's a medium blue cap, so I don't think I can use PS on it.
You could try a little alcohal on the glue spots..... I think dusting might make them show up more Can you overlay them with something?
Wish I could help more...
if all else fails...cover it with something in your theme...like a star, wish I could see it.
What if you lightly steam it? That seems to make my gp and fondant pieces look more even; whether its removing powdered sugar or shiny parts where my glue shows.
There was initially glue residual along both seams that I made in the head area of the cap. However, as it's drying, it seems to be disappearing. I'll keep praying it's gone by morning!
