Adding CMC to your sugarpaste allows you to create your own modelling paste which will dry faster and harder.
You can also mix a small amount of CMC with boiling water to make your own edible glue.
Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is a modified plant cellulose. CMC is mainly used as a gum in flower paste recipes, and can be used in pastillage work, giving a whiter finish to paste than gum tragacanth.
