Modelling paste & gumpaste

Gumpaste and sugar paste for modeling Cake design | Féerie Cake

What is gumpaste?

Gumpaste is an edible modeling paste widely used in cake design. It is also called flower paste, pastillage or modelling paste. It is designed to make modeling.

It's a soft, pliable sugar paste, but unlike fondant, it dries completely hard. This makes it perfect for creating detailed cake decorations like roses, daisies and other flowers.

Gumpaste or gum paste is a paste made from powdered sugar and several other ingredients that make it easy to work with to make sugar flowers and leaves and other small objects used to decorate cakes.

To make flowers and leaves, the dough is rolled out thinly, and the petals and leaves are cut out with cookie cutters. After drying, you'll have beautiful, lifelike flowers!

To make gum paste objects, you can either roll out the dough to the desired thickness and cut out shapes with a knife, or press the dough into silicone cake design molds. Once they are dry, you can paint them with food coloring or decorate them in many different ways.

Gumpaste can be used in its natural white form or colored with gel food coloring

What is the difference between gumpaste and sugar paste?

Gumpaste is not as flexible as sugar paste, but it has the advantage of hardening less quickly. This gives you more time to make precise and complex models. Once dry, gumpaste will hold up perfectly over time, as it hardens very strongly.

Like sugarpaste, gumpaste is edible, but it is a little less pleasant to eat.

How to use gumpaste?

Gumpaste can be used with silicone molds or cookie cutters. It can be worked with the same accessories as the classic sugar paste.

To make the gumpaste more pliable while keeping it very hard, you can mix the gumpaste with traditional sugar paste.

Gumpaste can also be colored with food coloring, especially with powdered coloring to create effects on the edges of the petals for example.

Féérie Cake offers you a wide selection of gumpaste in different colors, ready to use, like the products of the brand Renshaw. Try for example the gumpaste kit in the 5 primary colors. This is a great time saver when your modeling requires different colors.
