I'm still trying to get this monkey done with fondant but the body keeps getting so soft and the monkey ends up looking smooshed. I've seen that some use fondant, some use gumpaste for figures. How do I know what I need? Should I do half and half??

Thanks! icon_smile.gif

Sometimes i'll just use gumpaste for things... If I want them to dry and stay put! lol

I've used all, just fondant, just gumpaste, and 50/50. I mainly like to use fondant with tylose mixed in.
