What is the best mixture to make drapes out of? I usually use a 50/50 mixture of fondant and gumpaste.
Would adding modeling chocolate make the dough more flexible and give me more time to work with it?
I've added modeling chocolate to fondant to make drapes. I think Jennifer Dontz does the same and her draping is lovely.
I find that I can roll it thru my KA pasta roller and it's nice and flexible--doesn't get "elephant skin" on the pleats of the drape as it dries, either.
I use modeling chocolate and fondant mixed for something like this also. I wouldn,t use the gumpaste. But this is just my opinion. hth
I'm with Blakes cakes and Icer on this one, yes to modeling chocolate/fondant mix. You can roll it very thin, it doesn't strech, and it's strong.
Thanks. I am going to try fondant/modeling chocolate. What are the correct proportions of each?
