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.

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.
