I'm making an autumn cake, and I want to put some flowers on it (roses, daisies, etc). I colored my fondant and got some great colors. Now I'm thinking I should've made a 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mix. I'm afraid if I add the gumpaste now, it will lighten my colors, and I really like the dark colors I created. Can I make decent flowers with only fondant? Or should I suck it up and mix in the gumpaste?

You can make them out of only fondant, but they will take longer to dry.

It's a lot easier to make roses with gumpaste, but most other things work just as well with plain fondant.
