Nosnin, in your experience with gum paste, is there anyway to keep it from looking too sugar crystally?  Or did I just not mix it together right?

When I used it I was at school and the instructor had made it. I'm planning on doing some work with gum paste, but I have used and made fondent before and it might be the best for that.
It looks like you used sugar paste, how long did you mix it for?
Congratulations by the way!  Cheesy

Um, I didn't actually mix it that long.  Embarrassed  I had lost the directions from the mix (it was some Wilton's thing), so I kinda just Kneaded it for a bit.  Also, it got pretty sticky after I used it for a while.  Can you use confectioner's sugar like you would flour to prevent it sticking?  Or should I use something else?

You might be able to get directions off wilton's website next time  ( www.wilton.com ).  It doesn't help now, but here's the information off the website on gum paste mix:

Combine 1 lb. of mix and 1/4 cup of water in a large bowl. Stir until well mixed. Dust your work surface with confectioners' sugar; turn out mixture on surface and knead like bread dough until mix is well worked in.

Place in a tightly sealed plastic bag and let rest for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Turn out on a surface lightly dusted with confectioners' sugar. Knead for about 5 minutes, gradually working in 1/3 cup of confectioners' sugar. Mixture should be smooth and non-sticky.

Use at once, or store at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag in a covered container.

Will keep up to 6 weeks. Refrigerate if storing longer than 1 week. Makes enough for 50 roses or 100 daisies.

  You're welcome!  Sometimes all the time I spend online is actually useful for something.  Grin
