I use a mixture of fondant (I make my own marshmallow fondant) and Wilton gumpaste. Have had good luck with that.

I really like using Nick Lodge's gum paste for all my flowers. With it I find I can achieve really thin petals. I keep it in the refrigerator and store several bags in the freezer. You do have to work quickly with it, however, for it dries rapidly. A little fondant mixed in would extend your working time.

Good luck with your venture.
