Modeling chcoolate tastes very good but i find that gum paste tastes and smells odd. I rarely use gum paste only. I tend to mix it with my homemade marshmallow fondant and make it 50/50. That way, it tastes better.

I love modeling clay (aka- chocolate clay, chocolate leather). It is delicious. I don't like the taste of gumpaste. It tastes like those little conversation hearts that you can buy around Valentine' day and has the little sayings on them.

I only use gumpaste for flowers and lettering. The flowers dont usually get eaten people like to keep them. The lettering is so thin it does not taste when eaten with icing. Modelling chocolate tastes really good

You can use it for chocolate roses and lettering but if you are looking at making realistic flowers then only gumpaste will do.

Default thank you

I like to make stuff look real. i will keep that in mind. i guess alot of it is just playing with different things to see what works best.
