I’ve posted here previously about if Gumpaste or fondant would work for a clam shell cake I’m going to be making. Now I know some people said I can use gumpaste. This is my plan. I bought 2 lbs worth of gumpaste from Hobby Lobby yesterday, I hope this will work.
My question is in the title but let me explain a bit further. I’ve never worked with gumpaste before. I’ve been reading EVERWHERE and It seems to be a rule that gumpaste can typically be dry or hard to work with. How can I get this to roll out to a 14 in shell? The pic of the mold im using is in a previous post of mine if you care to look. What can I use to make the gumpaste pliable enough to roll out that large? Is 2lbs even enough or would I need more?
I want to lay the large piece of gumpaste over the large dusted mold to shape and to keep shape until dry. Will this work or am I completely out of my league here??? Im also making my daughters 3 tier (dummy bottom tier) Moana cake side by side with this so I’m a wreck and alone on this.
Oh and did I mention they’re both going to be illuminated cakes?? Yeah I tend to bite off more than I can chew sometimes lol Any help or encouragement from you guys would be great. Thanks!
