between gumpaste and fondant? I know they can be used for the same effect. What does gumpaste taste like? Sorry I'm kind of new to the fondant/gumpaste world, trying to escape from the buttercream world lol...

I haven't used gumpaste but once, but I've found that gumpaste dries harder, and the fondant tastes better. That's just my personal opinion.

Fondant is meant to be eaten (except maybe Wilton's fondant) and gumpaste isn't. Gumpaste dries faster so you have to keep . It will take more detail and can usually be worked thinner than fondant. Gumpaste dries harder than fondant, if you use gumpaste decorations on a cake it's best to warn people not to eat them because they could break a tooth on it.
