How to make edible glue

edible glue

There are various types of edible glue; such as royal icing, gum paste/water mixture, melted chocoloate, piping gel etc.  Which glue you choose depends on each individual project.  I would use royal icing to fasten the pieces of a gingerbread house together, for example, as it tends to be a strong adhesive.

My favourite type of sweet glue is made with tylose powder.

I’ve adapted the following tylose glue recipe from Bonnie Gordon’s School of Cake Decorating and Design . (Smaller quantity).

Ingredients/Equipment used to make edible glue:

  1. 1/4 tsp tylose powder
  2. 2 Tbs warm water
  3. paintbrush
  4. small bowl or container
  5. fork

 

Instructions on how to make edible glue:

  1. Put 1/4 tsp of tylose powder in a small bowl or container.
  2. Add 2 Tbs of warm water and stir with a fork to break up the Tylose lumps the best  you can.  (The mixture will look lumpy; this is normal).
  3. Cover and put it in the fridge overnight.
  4. When it has set, the glue should have a syrupy consistency.  If it’s too thick, add water or too thin, add more tylose powder.
  5. Use a paintbrush to apply the glue for precision.

When the glue is ready, it will be transparent.  It’s for this main reason that I prefer tylose edible glue for most of my projects…  It’s much easier to see mistakes with royal icing ‘glue’ than it is with this recipe!

Happy glueing!!
