What is the difference between fondant & gum paste? Gum paste flowers dry so much better and seem to hold up to the humidity where as fondant flower petals droop after awhile. What is the different ingredient/ingredients that sets the two apart???

It is gum product ,like gum arabic. It make the paste dry hard. As long as it out of water it will remain in its shape.
