normally it is recommended petal paste and sugar paste mixed depending on what cutter I would imaging I make a 50 50 mix
some cutters can be quite delicate requiring a thin pasted if that makes sense?

I just used one today(art nouveau tulip) and just used fondant. it was very tedious work and I had to do extra Xacto knife cutting and piecing back together but it turned out ok.

I always use very thinly rolled gumpaste with mine and it works great. I make sure to lighly grease the cutter before each cut. Then I let it sit for a few minutes before moving it to a piece of styrofoam for drying. I have a very thin metal spatula that I slide from side to side several times when picking up the item so as not to stretch or distort it. Works for me.

If you have the KitchenAid pasta maker, roll out on setting 5. I learned to use setting 4 if you're making a base piece that you're going to layer additional pieces on.
