AHi Chris, I get my fondant from Tesco usually and gumpaste on ebay or amazon. I've just ordered some from Sugarpaste direct to try, recommended by a few people on the UK thread.

If you're happy to buy online I just usually do a google search and see what's best. I often go back to the same sites but sometimes you can get better deals if you have time to do a google search. I don't have many places locally that stock the quality of paste I usually want. www.cakesraftshop.co.uk is one I sometimes use. It really depends on quantities though.

For fondant to cover cakes with I buy Sattina from www.cakecraftshop.co.uk (NB: there is an error in the spelling in the poster above link) because I like the taste and it's good quality. I do have the advantage of not living too far away from their warehouse though, so that saves on delivery cost.

 

For making figures etc, I use any fondant I can find nearby (tesco, renshaw) and add a little tylose from a small tub I bought off Amazon. I think I've seen it in Hobbycraft before but could be wrong....

 

I think Hobbycraft sells gumpaste, you can check their website :-) I love that place.
