I was wondering if anyone out there has any tips when it comes to blending together different pieces of fondant? I was recently trying to build a person out of fondant and I was having a hard time getting the different parts of the person to stick together and blend into each so that you couldn't see the seems of where I put them together. I'm a little new to this so anything would help!! Thankks! icon_smile.gif

I've used gum paste for my figures.

Marzipan is great for blending. It takes a long time to dry out so it is great for modelling. Just use icing sugar not cornstarch for dusting
