    Hello everyone. Do you buy your fondant and gumpaste or you make them yourself. If you make them yourself, any help on the recipes ? Thanks

    There are good quality fondants and gumpastes available commercially. Consistency is the biggest issue; a commercially produced product will be very consistent in quality.

    But if you want to make your own I would recommend Toba Garrett’s recipe. Just google her a few bloggers have posted her recipes.


    If you’re going to purchase I would recommend Fat Daddios. For a professional quality fondant Carma Massa Ticino or Mona Lisa by Callebaut. With professional quality fondant you get superior handling and durability as these fondants are formulated for higher humidity conditions.

    I wouldn’t waste my time or money on Wilton.
