Hi everyone, im a newbie at making gumpaste flower. What confectioner sugar do you use? Here in australia we have 2 types. 1. Pure Confectioner sugar 2. Soft Mixture confectioner sugar which contains 4% cornstarch. Which one should I use? Thank you in advance.
I don't think I can answer that question. Although I make gum paste all the time, I am in the USA and we only have one type of confectioner's sugar (to my knowledge). I am pretty sure it does not contain any cornstarch.
Actually Sandra our powder sugar does contain cornstarch:) I believe it is usually 4% but that could very by brands
I stand corrected! When it says Pure Cane Sugar, I took it at its word, lol.
I just checked my Walmart brand and it does list cornstarch as the second ingredient. See, you are never too old to learn something.
