I found that mixing fondant and gum paste together works best for me. Just make sure that the brim has plenty of time to dry.

I think you could use either. Be careful not to roll it too thin. It will take time to dry, but will be stronger. Also, use a flower former or rolling pin to lay on to hold the shape. Good luck.

i use fondant mixed with some tylose powder. It makes a quick gumpaste. It is just like working with fondant, only you have to work quicker since it dries out faster.

Gumpaste will dry harder but I've used half and half with good results before too.
