Yup! Hard as it is to believe, I am about to run out of the gumpaste I made for the project (only 1 batch, lol), so I must make some more. I prefer to make my own gumpaste, rather than purchase it or alter fondant (add tylose powder or Gum-Tex to fondant until you get the proper consistency). Altering fondant is fantastic in an emergency, but is not my preferred method.
I make my own gumpaste, using Nicholas Lodge's recipe. I got it when I took a class a few years ago, and it was published on his website. I have found it here (about half way down the page), on the First Impression's website though, if you wish to try it. It's really not hard to make. Plus, I'm a lazy decorator, I fully admit it, and even *I* make my own gumpaste, lol, so it can't be hard!
I probably should have made it tonight, but wanted to get some flowers finished. So, I'll make it in the morning :) It is recommended to let it sit for 24 hours, so it's probably good that I have some gumpaste left, lol.
I added up the total number of individual flowers (of various varieties) I am supposed to be making for this cake. It was a scary number!!! Tonight, I added up how many I have finished so far, and was surprised to find that I'm almost 1/3 of the way there!!! I still haven't made a list of all the other things I have to do for this cake.....I think I'm afraid too, lol!
