Are you covering a cake?  If so, get the leaf on transfer sheets. 
Geez -  bad photo.  Sorry.  I'll do better later when I try more molds.
Just tried this - amazing!!!  Soft, flexible, easy to remove from molds.  I made one clear flower, then added powdered titanium dioxide to make it opaque white.  Looks like shiny fondant.  I then added a little pink gel color to the white mix to get the pink flowers.  There is a bubble in one of the flowers that I didn't fill in, but...  Thank you so much for sharing this formula.  I will leave my experiments out for a while to see how they age.  You are giving Bill Nye,...
Most will take credit cards, but cash always works.   Like KatieKake said, the convention is well worth the registration fee if it is within your budget.   Lots and lots of different techniques are presented in the paid demos, and you'll have access to the vendors before the one-day pass available to the public.   Have you visited the ICES convention web site?  Vendors are listed there along with the classes and demos.
Yes!!!  It is worth every penny.  There will be dozens and dozens of vendors with all the latest and greatest.  There are free demos at most of the larger vendors.  There are great buys to be had on some products, too.  Wish I were closer - ICES convention is Caker's Heaven.  Take as much money as your budget will allow.  Rent out a couple of kids or siblings for a week-end for extra funds if you have to..... 
Global has them here:  
Check out clay stamps - letter or alphabet -  in the  polymer clay section of a craft store.  
You may be able to find gum tragacanth in your area.  CMC is a synthetic version of gum tragacanth, so you can knead in the gum powder to stiffen your fondant and help it dry.  The gum tragacanth is a little ivory in color but shouldn't make a big difference.  Check out this link from Lindy's Cakes about gum tragacanth
Late response, but I had almond milk and instant sugar-free pudding on hand.  I used half the amount as recommended above, and it set up extremely thick - probably even gloppy LOL.  I could have used the entire amount, so almond milk does work!     
I use Silver Cloud Estates Pistachio Natural Flavor Blend in batters and fillings, but have never tried working it into fondant.  It is clear, so it should work.  The flavor is pretty good - better than the Jello pistachio pudding stuff, IMHO.
