Dear all,
I want to make gumpaste for my flower from Fran's recipe...but I wonder about ingredient cream of tar tar, cause in My country cream of tar tar is still wonder, allowable or I prefer to not use it in my cake decoration.

So maybe anyone know how to substitute cream of tar tar with ? so I can made good gumpaste without cream of tar tar.

Thank you

Cream of tarter is an acid. Check out this website for more info on it. There really is no substitution for it, especially if you are trying to make gumpaste.

People don't normally eat gumpaste anyway. It's disgusting. icon_biggrin.gif

Nick Lodge's gumpaste recipe doesn't use cream of tartar.
