    Hello!  I just subscribed about an hour ago.  I don't know how I didn't run across your videos sooner.  So far, I am loving the tutorials.  Your video on How to Make Elmo was truly awesome!!!! I have been a cake artist for a few years now, and I always see new and old things that I had no idea how to do.  So thank you from Southern Sassy Sweets from Lovelady, Texas!!!!  I am definitely a fan of yours!!!!

All the tools and base can they be susituted with other items I have all the wilton tools but no mat and we in england would have to use a plastic stick not wood is that ok? do you sell a baby elephant so i could model from? the work board for rolling gum paste is that specially for gum paste a lot of questions so sorry but want to have a go at making a Baby E thankyou for your inspiring creation Laura a new fan Georga :))

    Laura, your tutorial was incredible.  It was invaluable to me in creating my first gum paste figure!  My sons mouths fell open when they saw their Elmo birthday cake! Thanks and God bless you.

  • Krazy Kool Cakes & Designs says:

    You're very welcome. Yes, it is pretty good and colors well. 🙂

  • Krazy Kool Cakes & Designs says:

    Once in a while I do use Satin Ice. 🙂

  • Krazy Kool Cakes & Designs says:

    Gel food coloring. This red gumpaste however, as I mentioned in the video, is pre-colored.

  • Gifty Miller says:

    How do you color your gum paste?
