I've never heard of that. I've heard of flower paste but not magic paste.

you sure it's not just something someone said overenthusiastically about fondant? lol. like, they loved what magic it created on cakes -- thus magic paste? (paste - like how some people call it "sugarpaste")

hey, ya never know icon_rolleyes.gif haha

From your description, I would say it was that type of slurry some referred to...made with fondant and water(enough to make a pasty substance) for hiding boo boos and seams....

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I heard about it from a cake lady who travels over the world gathering knowledge about cake and cake decorating ideas and techniques but when I asked she said she would let me know when she'ld be holding classes on it but its been a year now and I kind of felt others on here might know about it.

She says its like sugarpaste but is much better but who knows - she might just have given a different name to a well-known recipe icon_wink.gif

Does the have an accent? Maybe Mexican sounded like Magic? I am leaning towards the Mexican paste after that description.
