I am confused about what products I can do with what. If I were to do lettering, should I use gumpaste (flower paste in the UK) or mexican paste. I know that you usually do modelling with mexican paste but does that include cutting out letters. I have only flower paste at home (gumpaste). Is that suitable? What is the difference?
What is Mexican paste? I have heard the term and know it is simalar to gumpaste, but what I mean is it like fondant that has had a gum added to it? Or is it just another recipe for a different type of gumpaste?
I don't see why you can't do the lettering in gumpaste.
mexican paste is used for modelling characters etc while gumpaste is used for flowers where you can roll them very thin.
Do you have to mix Mexican Paste with fondant or something or use it as it is? It doesn't taste very nice.
