Flower paste vs fondant ready rolled

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm starting to experiment with making models from rolled icing rather than just using buttercream. I want to make shapes like butterfly's. I tried something similar with ready rolled fondant icing the weekend but found it wouldn't stand upright but would just flop back down. Would flower paste be my best bet? If so how easy is it to make, can I buy it ready made and is it easy to colour? Thank you x x

HI, i love wilton's premade gumpaste recipe. I love nichols lodge recipe. I am sending a link to it. scroll down on the page and you will see it.hth  Wilton's works good and dries really nice. Put little shortening on your fingers and work it thru the piece of dough you are using and it will do really nice for you.

Your flower paste is usually made with more gums - this makes it dry harder, and you are able to roll it out thinner for more delicate work.

If you want to make your fondant dry harder, you can work in some CMC or Tylo powder.  You can also use the Tylo powder to make your own sugar glue.
