We all see the wonderful backdrops that help display cakes at parties, and a staple décor is the party fans ( giant folded circles). My question is has anyone at attempted to make these out of fondant?

Hi Nina, I definitely wouldn't try making these out of fondant.  I made fans (quadrants only, not even semi-circles) from fondant before and they were super chunky, ruining the effect.  Gumpaste on the other hand would work really well because it is much finer, rolls out much thinner and you could create the folds much more easily. Good luck!
