Gum paste blackberries

I’m planning to make some of these using coloured sugar pearls. The fixing medium suggested is piping gel but I’m planning to use edible glue and would be grateful to know if you think this would work. Thank you

Hi Kmeim

I’ve never had success with piping gel as a glue, it tends to take too long to dry for me. My personal choice would be a little fine dot of edible glue which works quickly and holds well. For your own satisfaction, do a trial with both and see which you prefer. 🙂

Just another quick question. I’m colouring the sugar pearls with a mixture of paste colours. Will this dry or will I be better to use powder colours mixed with alcohol? Sorry to be a pest!

Powder colours with alcohol gets my vote every time. It dries in no time 🙂
