I recently started making cakes and i make marshmellow fondant instead of buying it.
I'm wanting to use sugar paste and I'm getting confused with it.
I see that you can use 1/2 fondant 1/2 sugar paste for things
i see only sugar paste.
Ahh I'm such a rookie!! lol
Can you please help me, I would like to know the pros and cons of it.
Any recipes to make it?
Thanks a bunch!
ASugarpaste and fondant are the same thing, just called one or the other depending on which country you're in.
Ok. What about Gum Paste?
Gum paste is a slightly different recipe to fondant which essentially can be rolled thinner than fondant/sugar paste and it dries faster and harder. It is called flower paste in some countries (usually in the same countries where fondant is called sugar paste).
So you would mix fondant/gumpaste to get a modified fondant mixture, useful for modelling and other stuff.
Oh ok thanks! I seen at the craft stores they have the gum paste and I just never bought it. I usually just use fondant but i'm also just starting out too.
