This is a nice alternative to using water for glue. It takes on a nice, syrupy consistency, and you can easily apply it to your gum paste and fondant creations with a paint brush as you assemble them.
1/4 tsp. CMC powder or Tylose Powder
2 Tablespoons warm water
Stir ingredients in a small container. Add lid. It doesn’t look so great at this point. CMC powder will probably be a little lumpy and not dissolved. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight, and you are left with a nice, clear, smooth glue. Keeps in the refrigerator for about a week.
****It should be a syrupy consistency. If it is too thick, stir in a little bit of water at a time until it looks right.
