I just got a call to do a bridal shower cake for tomm @ 3pm (yeah I know last minute customers, lol)!

I'm almost all out of white fondant and to cover my wonder mold doll. I have some gumpaste that will make up for the rest of the fondant BUT, this might some stupid: IS GUMPASTE EDIBLE???

I know it's used for flowers but i never heard any talk about eating the creations made with it. PLEASE HELP, I want to do this tonight!!

I'm pretty sure it is edible but it will dry VERY hard! Not sure how it would work to cover a cake with it. Could you maybe do part of the dress with the fondant and make it look like it come up in the front with an opening (not sure if that makes sense or not lol) and ice the opening with buttercream? I hope that made sense. the picture in my mind did LOL

It is edible but does not taste very good. IMO

Gum Paste decorations are edible but arnt usually eaten because they dry so hard. I agree with charlie...maybe you can make the the bottom of the dress in gumpaste and have it look like its flowing. hope you come up with something... would love to see pics of your creation.

I would ice in BC and use fondant accents. Can you call the customer and change the design? Maybe run out and get the stuff to make MMF?

Thanks so much, I really appreciate the quick responses. I'm going to do exactly what you sugggested (ice in buttercream) and go from there. Thanks again icon_smile.gif I haven't had any luck lately uploading any of my pictures to my gallery and it's been over a month now. I don't know why but it won't let me. I'll try again when I'm finished.
