Does anyone else have a problem when using gum trag in coloured icing that it dries out and cracks? I am making bridesmaids and their dresses are cracking. Has anyone used only sugar paste?
When I’ve done models I’ve just added CMC to sugarpaste and haven’t had drying out/cracking problems, have you tried adding a bit of Trex to slacken it off a bit?
I have this problem with gum trag and tylose. I rub trex into my hands and knead well into the paste.
Resting the paste for a good twenty-four hours also helps.
Questions, issues or concerns? I'd love to help you!
