Gumpaste is not the same as fondant.  Gumpaste is used for smaller decorations like flowers, because it dries hard and fast, so it holds its shape well, and can be rolled thinner.  Fondant is much tastier!

Gumpaste is edible, but it's very hard. I wouldn't advise eating it. You might chip a tooth!
