Gum paste is made with egg whites, powdered sugar, and shortening, and it hardens as it dries. Professional bakers usually cover their cakes with fondant and fashion smaller decorations using gum paste.
- Gum paste dries out very quickly, so wrap in plastic wrap if you need to take a break or leave the kitchen.
KEEP GUM PASTE REFRIGERATED UNTIL USE. DO NOT FREEZE OR REFRIGERATE FINISHED PRODUCTS!
