Christmas Dinner Menu Ideas

Though it is true that Christmas is celebrated as the day of the Birth of Christ into this world, yet it also symbolizes a very deeply significant truth of the spiritual life. Jesus Christ is the very personification of Divinity. Christ it is EXTREMELY important to us Christians. We celebrate the miracle-virgin birth of the Savior of the World. Without this birth there would be no salvation. Christmas is also a time where we exchange gifts (representing how God gave his son to us as a gift), and to many, giving and receiving is important. This simple tradition gives joy to those who partake, and brings family and friends closer together. This is exiting time of the year for my family.

Gum Paste Recipe

Homemade gum paste is better than premade in most cases because it is less expensive and creates a product that is easier to use. Premade gum paste tends to be a little stiffer and more likely to crack. There are four elements to making gum paste which are ingredients, mixing, kneading and storing.It is important to allot enough time when creating gum paste because each step is crucial to the finished product and ultimately the flowers you create. I started learning with fondant, because I could go and buy the ingredients. I moved on to gum paste now and loving it. Gum paste is similar to fondant  in many ways. It is a pliable sugar dough that you can roll, mold and shape into virtually any figure you desire. Many fondant tools also work with gum paste. The major difference lies in the fact that gum paste dries much quicker, and harder, than fondant. 

I am selling my gumpaste creations at my  Etsy Shop
