  • 1 Tablespoon of Wilton Gum-Tex
  • 4 Cups sifted Confection’s sugar (1 lb)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon Wilton Glucose
  • 4 Tablespoons warm water

  3. Heat measuring cup on high for 30 seconds until mixture is clear.
  4. Pour into sell of sugar and Gum-Tex and mix until well blended. {it will be sticky and eventually be soft}
Wilton instructions say to place mixture in plastic bag and seal tightly. Let it rest at room temperature 8 hours or overnight. Then knead remaining sugar 1 cup into gum paste when ready to use. {I didn’t wait for 8 hours. Since I need to use it right away, it worked well after I kneaded the mixture plus the 1 cup of powder sugar} As you work in the sugar, the gum paste will whiten and become softer. It is very important to keep it covered to prevent from drying out. You can add a little vegetable shortening to keep it soft and pliable.
