I usually use a mixture of fondant/gumpaste. If you use just fondant, it will take too long to dry and may not hold the shape that you want. The more gumpaste you add the faster it will dry.

I use fondant with Tylose powder kneaded in. Approx. 1 lb. of fondant to 1 tsp of tylose. I feel it gives me a little longer to work then straight gumpaste does. I have also used 50/50 gumpaste and fondant.
