So, to make the pooh, piglet, tigger figures, is it best to use all fondant?
mix fondant with gunpaste?
or just gumpaste?
when do you use what?
Thanks again.....from the newbie!
I recommend gumpaste. Fondant is too soft and it may not dry...the first time I made a bunny I used fondant and it stayed soft for a long time.
I use modelling paste, which is fondant with tylo/ gumtragacanth added. two teaspoons to a lb of fondant.
I'm with FionaB -- that's how I make my figures.
i use fondant and gumpaste mix.. if they are normal size project.. if they are tall.. like people,etc. i use pastiallage.. i make myself.. in my photos.. the charm city cake. all the project on top is pastiallage.. hth
I tried to make a golfer to put on a cake for my BIL. It was SO heavy! And it wasn't very big - maybe three inches. Everyone here makes such adorable cute little figures. How do you keep them from being so heavy that they sink into the cake?
