I want to make a rolled diploma for a graduation cake. Should I use Fondant, gumpaste or a mix of both.
I use gumpaste, but you can add tylose to fondant and make it. I just wrap it around a big plastic dowel and let dry for several days if possible.
I also just use gumpaste that has been rolled very thin. After rolling I just slightly curl the exposed ends.
If you have rice paper, it's works as well, looks a little more like parchment paper and you can paint/write on it.
I don't think I'd use gumpaste, it will be brittle. I think wraping it in the dowels as previsouly mentioned would work well. Use fondant w/ some tylose sprinkled in.
