Gum Paste - Simple
|Serves:||makes about 1 pound|
|1 lb||confectioners sugar (about 4 cups)|
|1 Tbsp||unflavored gelatin|
|1 Tbsp||clear corn syrup|
I finally found a recipe for Gum Paste that did not require "gum tragacanth" or "tylose" which is also called CMC or carboxymethylcullulose. I have a problem cooking with something I can't pronouce...LOL
Any recipe that calls for those supposedly can be made using geletin & corn syrup. Gum paste is a very strong sugar clay - stronger than Fondant for making flowers & figures. The negative about this recipe is that when it drys it can be brittle. I had fun making a few simple things.
