Sugar paste, also known as gum paste, is used for making all kinds of fancy decorations, such as long-lasting flowers, ribbons, bows, leaves, and just about anything else you can imagine. It has a long and interesting history and has been used by confectioners to make edible decorations since the late medieval period.
Gum paste is really a pliable “sugar dough”, mixed with gums, which makes it easy to shape like modeling clay. It can be tinted, painted on or dusted with decorating dusts. It can be rolled very thin, used for making delicate shapes or molded into figurines, trees, and animals. Pieces can be “glued” together to make large standing ones.
