Flower, Modelling And Gum Pastes

Flower paste (also known as florist or gum paste) is a paste that can be rolled thinly, holds its structure and sets hard.  It is used for making flowers, leaves and other intricate pieces. Modelling (or Mexican Modelling) paste is a paste that is best for making models and figures, it sets hard, holds its shape but is still soft enough to eat.
