I seldom have people eat the decorations. I guess technically they are edible, but that doesn't necessarily make them palatable.

You can make figures out of fondant, but they stay a little "soft". I mix fondant and gumpaste or add Tylose to the fondant so the figures dry a little faster and are studier.
