HELP Please, my gumpaste is too soft
I’m new to this website.
I bought some Wilton powder to make some gumpaste. It is the second time I do it. The first time everything turned out ok, but this time the gumpaste is too sticky and soft.
I made a figurine for my daughter’s birthday cake in 2 weeks but after 2 days the torso had bent and broken in two.
Also, shapes just won’t hold…
What should I do to make my gumpaste a little harder? I thought adding more powdered sugar would help, but I read somewhere here that it will make it worse.
Does anyone know what to do?
(I’m so desperate that I even considered making the figurine out of polymer clay but my daughter wants to be able to eat it, lol)
