Photos of Fondant and Gum Paste

Fondant and gum paste are two of the most popular edible clays (click here to learn about other sugar craft options.) Any of these methods can be used to make terrific decorations to enhance your gingerbread house... flowers, figures, animals, people, decorative trim, curtains, shutters, fences, siding, molding,... the list is endless.

Since ALL fondant and gum paste creations, whether for gingerbread houses or not, may inspire you, we won't limit these photos to just gingerbread. Please share your own creations made from fondant and gum paste here (or pastillage.) And take the time to comment on someone else's creation.
