Instructions and Tips for Use

Gum Tragacanth is a natural gum that you can use to make the modelling paste for your cakes. Knead in 1 teaspoon of gum into 225g (8oz) of sugarpaste, the gum needs time to work before the paste is used. You will begin to feel a difference in the paste after an hour or so, but it is best left overnight. Keep completely airtight to prevent drying out.
