Which is the best for molding flowers?
Thanks so much,
I think gumpaste is the best because.....
1. With Fondant you can't roll it as thin as gumpaste
2. Fondant takes forever to dry and never dries really hard
Now i havn't tried pastillage before but i think it dries fast and is fragile when dry so might be a bit harder to work with then gumpaste, but not sure.
So yeh gumpaste is easier to work with and can create more delaticate flowers that will dry hard. Thats just my observation but hope that helps
Hi Ash, you can use gumpaste or, mix 50/50 gumpaste and fondant. I never use fondant to make flowers or figures. Only use it do ribbons, cutouts that can glues to the cake.
Pastillage is very hard and brittle when its dry. So that's not good for flowers. But you can use it to make tables, chairs and I used it to make turrets of a castle cake.
