Tylose Gumpaste

3 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons lemon juice (strained)
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon glucose
6 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Tylose or CMC powder 

  1. In a small microwavable bowl combine gelatin, lemon juice, and water. Stir with a fork, then microwave for 40 seconds on high until it looks like runny honey.
  2. In a medium bowl combine icing sugar and Tylose powder and mix well with a fork. Divide this mixture into two portions.
  3. Pour the gelatin/lemon juice mixture into one portion of the icing sugar/Tylose mixture. Stir with a fork.
  4. With your hands, in the same bowl, mix in the rest of the icing sugar/Tylose mixture.
  5. Take smaller portions of the gumpaste and knead it in your hands.

Notes: Wrap the gumpaste in plastic wrap or in a air-tight container and it will be ready to use in 1 hour. When using this gumpaste put shortening on your hands to make the gumpaste more workable. It also works well in silicon molds.
