hello I am making the doilie cake and someone suggested that I use half fondant half gumpaste mixture for them.
What will this do, how will it change the consistancy of the fondant?
Does it make it stay more workable or does it make it harden faster and quicker?
What ever can be done to make it less breakable would be great.
any help will be most appreciated.
The gumpaste will make the fondant stiffer and will dry more quickly. It will make it less likely to break while decorating but will dry more. This might make it slightly harder to cut.
gumpaste does dry faster and quicker then fondant and you can also roll it out thinner too. when gumpaste dries completely it is very hard and not easily breakable.
yes Labmom, it does all of the above it helps stay plyable and workable a little longer and it also helps it dry faster as far as consistance it does make it a little softer and easier to work for figures and decorations and molding. HTH
