I've been seeing a lot of comments about using 50/50 gumpaste and fondant to sculpt figures. What is the benefit to using 50/50? Less cracking? Does it harden? I tried searching for a forum on this, but couldn't find anything.

The fondant allows for longer working time while the gumpaste dries much more quickly than fondant and very hard.

You can roll 50/50 just as thinly as you can gumpaste for making flowers. It's all I use.

Just like cakepro says.

I actually prefer it, first it will save you gumpaste and second, it performs better (for me) than gumpaste alone.

Good to know! I am doing a cake this weekend with flowers so I'll give it a shot.
