Ingredients

  • 450 grams Powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp Tylos / CMC
  • 1 tbsp Meringue powder
  • ½ tsp Cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp Light corn syrup
  • ½ tbsp Vanilla Extract or Almond
  • 3 tbsp Water warm
  • 1 tbsp Veg shortening.

Instructions

  • Have all your ingredients ready.
  • In a bowl place 2 cups of powder sugar.
  • Add the Tylos / CMC, cream of tartar and meringue powder - mix well.
  • Next, add 2 tbsp of warm water to the light corn syrup and mix thoroughly.
  • Add it to the sugar bowl and mix well.
  • The mixture might get a bit sticky and difficult to work but continue to work the meringue powder and tylos well.
  • Then add the last two cups of powder sugar.
  • It the mix is dry; add another tbsp of water.
  • Continue to knead well. Do not add more water unless necessary.
  • Eventually, you will have a dough as you can see in the progress pictures below.
  • Next, rub in the vegetable shortening until you have a nice smooth dough.
  • Once you feel you have a smooth but elastic dough you can stop kneading.
  • It's best to rest the dough in the fridge for a couple of hours before you use it. It will firm up quite a bit.
  • Always wrap well in plastic wrap as well as in a ziplock bag.
  • Label and store in a sealed box.
  • I divide my gum paste into 250 grams portions and store them separately. That way I use one portion at a time.
