Hi!! I want to make figures like the cake attached (maybe more 3-D). Should I use gumpaste together with the fondant? And if so, what's the ratio?
I usually use fondant for figurines because you have more time to play around with it. Gumpaste dries very fast, If the figurines are thicker then I might use a 50 / 50 mix of fondant and gumpaste so it wouldn't take so long to dry. I use gumpaste for flowers and want the petals as thin as possible so they look real and dry quickly. This is what I do HTH.
a mix of fondant and gumpaste should work fine... 50/50 ratio. For anything really long and thin (and still wanting to stand up) id lean more toward using straight gumpaste
But for that size a 50/50 mix should work
Thanks so much ladies!
I mix fondant with Tylose.
