AI need to make 200 gerbera daisy cupcake toppers. Will fondant work, or would I be better off with gum paste? How much do you add to the price of each cupcake? Also wondering how much fondant/ gum paste I will need to make 200 flowers. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
I vote for a combination of fondant and gumpaste for best results. With gumpaste, you can roll them thinner for easier eating. It would probably take you a few seconds to stamp one out, add a center and put onto a curved stand to dry. You could make all 200 in under an hour. As far as how much you should charge, I don't have that answer. Depends on where you live. How much would you need? That's hard to say - depends on how thick they are - or thin and how large they are.
AThank you for your help! I' wondering if I can add Tulose powder to fondant for the same/similar results? I already have some red fondant I would like to use.
To address your initial question, I'm of the opinion that pure fondant would be better than using gumpaste or a fondant/gumpaste mix.
Yes, you can add tylose to fondant.
AThank you! I was hoping to use pre-colored fondant since I have to make so many, but was worried that fondant wouldn't work as well as gumpaste with flowers.
