How Do I Make Petal Paste with Tragacanth?

Answer

Gum paste recipes vary but typically involve gum tragacanth, making it not as sturdy as pastillage. Because of the added gum, the dough is very elastic and soft, making it able to be rolled out thinner and worked with longer than pastillage. Both will hold up fairly well in humidity, but gum paste will soften slightly, as it will if it touches butter cream (because of its fat content) or is refrigerated. When you are ready to use your gum paste, mix the Bakels gum paste with the powdered mixture in a 1 to 1 ratio, preparing only the amount you will use that day. If the paste seems to be sticky or if it's very humid, add a pinch of Tylose or CMC (synthetic gum tragacanth, the gum in gum paste, found in cake-decorating stores) to keep the paste firm. Gum paste should snap when pulled apart. Add some shortening if it seems too dry.
