The most basic difference between fondant and gum paste is that you might cover your cake in fondant (like you would with icing), but you wouldn’t do that with gum paste. Texturally, fondant is soft and smooth whereas gum paste is sticky – until it dries, at which point it becomes hard and brittle. As for taste, gum paste doesn’t really taste like much of anything, but fondant can be quite delish. In its original state, fondant tastes like marshmallows. However, it is quite versatile and can also be flavored into pretty much anything with food flavoring.
For creating cake decorations, gum paste is preferred by some cakerators because it dries harder and faster than fondant and allows for crisper lines and more detailed decorations. For others, fondant is the medium of choice because it creates a softer look.
Now, let’s discuss! Which do you prefer working with? Do you have more questions about fondant vs. gum paste? Post your questions here.

Working with fondant is such a joy and a total stress reliever for me! Just check out the roses that I've done by self-teaching and hand crafting each petal. Then I added some color by brushing them with luster dust!
I've also done a bunch of stars for a very special birthday cake. They're attached to wire so that they will stand up out of the cake!
