1 Tbsp Wilton Gum- Tex Tylose Powder
1/4 cup (60 ml) Boiling water
1 Tbsp Icing Sugar
2 level Tbsp Cornflour
½ tsp Wilton Glucose
A drop of Wilton White White colour or any Wilton Gel Colour you want the lace to be.

When the mix is clear, add confectioner sugar and cornflour – mix again.
Then add the glucose syrup.
Add white edible colour – mix well.
This mix can be kept in the refrigerator for a week. To work with it let it come to room temperature.
To use – just spread lace as thin as possible in the lace mats.
Place in the oven at 60 C for 10 to 15 minutes or air dry overnight depending on the humidity level.
As soon as it leaves the sides and looks dry – you can test from the corner first.
You can double this recipe successfully. It works really well and the lace really has a long shelf life. Once made, the lace can be kept and used up to a few months.
Once you have made the lace, you can store it between parchment paper in a cardboard box.
