I need to drape so it will look like a bridal train coming down an 8", 12', 16" dummy with a 20" base.

Anyone have ideas? Should it be all gum paste, fondant or a mix of both?

Ive heard that gum paste dries harder, I dont do alot with fondant except for accent pieces, And i think it dries faster, not sure on that one,
Sorry i wasnt much help. Sounds cute, Is it for a wedding or just show??

hmm im not 100% sure but maybe a 50/50 mix, gumpaste will dry harder and faster then fondant. Plus you can roll gumpaste alot thinner.

I agree with SJ, do 50/50. You don't want it too heavy because of how far it goes. And you might want to secure it somehow on each tier. Good luck!
