    Oh. It's amazing! I used to make the kids cakes, got pretty good at it too, but not like that.

    Bones gum paste should form almost like clay does.

    Why not just use the gum paste? Or fondant?

    Did you see my pics of some fondant figures I made in your other thread about the gum paste?

    If you can shape clay, you can shape fondant.

    paulie....we were separated by the storm...she lives about 5 miles from me...but on the top of a mountain....her man had already gotten stuck in their 1/2 mile drive....and couldnt get out with a tractor...had to call a wrecker...luckily for us...another good friend is in the tow business....i had the gum paste....but couldnt get to her....plus i dont care for gum paste...the orginal plan was marizipan....but walmart aint jew friendly...if i had kept my wits...i would have simply gotten almonds and made the whole thing....i prefer marizipan ...i think cause its something you can eat.....and what really pisses me off...8.50 for a fucking lb of gum paste...i could have gotten 4 lbs of fondant for less...

    <----i panic easy lol
