I'm a total gum paste newbie and bought a can of Wilton Gum Paste mix this weekend. It says on the can to mix the entire contents with 1/4 cup of water.... I don't exactly need a pound of Gum Paste, just a little bit to make a few flowers for cupcakes.
Last night I used 1/4 cup of the Gum Paste mix and two teaspoons of warm water to mix the gum paste. It seemed to work fine but when I made little daisies they dried and cracked pretty quick and looked pretty bad.
Does anyone know the correct ratio/recipe for making smaller amounts of gum paste with the mix?
I just want to make a bunch of little daisies for 1 dozen cupcakes.
It's very simple to make and tastes good.
You can eat whatever's left over!
Gumpaste is my last resort. I know it won't taste good, but it will be technically edible and I want the whole cake to be edible. My first try ended up in the local paper. Oh my! Everyone else loved it but it's been 3 weeks and I'm still embarrassed about that dang brim.
Anyway, have you contacted Wilton to ask them?
