Tylose Gum Paste Recipe




  • I have used the paste right after making it but the paste will work so much better if you let it chill 24 hours before using.
  • If adding color to this recipe, use a concentrated gel color.  Add the gel color prior to add tylose.  Make sure the color is dispersed evenly before adding tylose.  This recipe makes a great white or pastel colored paste.  Adding a lot of gel color (for deep shades) can change the consistency of this paste.  Use the Rosemary Watson gum paste recipe for deep colors.  
  • This paste needs to be stored in the fridge when not is use.  Will last in the fridge for 3-6 months.  Freeze for 1 year.
  • This recipe can be doubled or tripled.
  • This recipe works best using Tylose.  The only brand I use is Confectionery Arts International.  Strengths vary by brands and I find CAI gives me a consistent product.  Don’t substitute CMC or other gums when using this recipe.
