Is sugar paste and gum paste different? I have never seen sugar paste in the stores.
Fondant & Sugarpaste are the same thing. Most English people call it Sugarpaste.
oh, I never thought that fondant was sugar paste. Thanks for that answer! I have some british books and they always say sugar paste.
Around here (Toronto) fondant is fondant but we call gumpaste both gumpaste and sugarpaste.
okay, now I am confused. I am from Ontario...so is fondant not sugar paste then? Gumpaste is sugarpaste as well???? I thought fondant was fondant as well. I figured that gumpaste might be reffered toa s sugarpaste as well
Fondant is sugar paste or RTR icing (ready to roll).
Gum paste is flower paste.
You can make gum paste/flower paste by adding tylose (or cmc or gum tex or gum trag) to sugar paste/fondant.
Thank-you for that clarification. I really appreciate it!
