Easy Homemade Gumpaste
Gumpaste is a beautiful pliable dough very similar to fondant. While fondant stays soft on a cake, gumpaste dries up hard and is better used for cake decorations. With that said it isn’t recommended for covering an entire cake. The best part about gum paste is that it can be rolled super thin without tearing and can be used to create strong, intricate decorations like sugar flowers, cake toppers and many other fun decorations. I highly recommend this recipe be combined with at least 10% fondant to release some of its stickiness and ease of use. This is an optional step and your own personal preference (cornstarch helps with stickiness as well). Below you’ll find samples of what I’ve created with my Easy Homemade Gumpaste recipe.
