Gum Paste Recipe

1 tbs Wilton Gum-Tex
4 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
1 heaping tbs Wilton Glucose
4 tbs warm water

In large bowl, combine Gum-Tex with 3 cups of sugar. Make a well in the center and set aside.
Combine water and glucose in a glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave on high for about 30 seconds until mixture clear. Pour into well of sugar and mix until well blended.
Mixture will be very soft.
Place mixture in a plastic bag and seal tightly. Let rest at room temperature 8 hours or overnight.
Knead remaining sugar into gum paste when you are ready to use.
Keep it covered to prevent it from drying out.
