I have created Uncle Sam using Sugarpaste stiffened up by adding gum tragacanth.....if
however you wish to use marzipan instead then ignore the bits where I add the gum tragacanth,
as marzipan when of top quality is stiff enough already....:)
Chop in the gum trag. so it doesn't go up your nose when you knead it up......add about two
heaped tea spoons to 8oz of paste.
Alter the amount if you feel the need...
