Gumpaste “glue” recipe


If you were wondering how to attach gumpaste (or fondant) flowers to a cake, this is the never-fail recipe I use.  Find a clean glass container with a lid.  Measure about 1 teaspoon of a good quality gumpaste.  Tear the gumpaste into very small pieces and place them inside the jar.  Pour 1 Tablespoon of alcohol (I like to use vanilla flavored rum, but you can also use any alcohol based flavor extracts you might have on hand) over the gumpaste, and stir.  For best results, make sure the gumpaste is completely dissolved before you use it as a glue.   This mixture should last for about a month if you keep it refrigerated.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
