Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Most of my customers do not like the taste of rolled fondant, so I tell them I will use buttercream icing and get it as smooth as I possibly can with the use of hot boiling water. Dip the metal spatula into the pot of boiling water and smooth down the icing. I use gum paste for some of the decorations. They seem to like the taste of gum paste better than rolled fondant. Which it is better to remove the decoration of gum paste than to romove the rolled fondant from a cake if not wanted.

When I make the Sock-It-To-Me cake on the "butter golden" cake box I decorate it according to the occasion. For Christmas I dye the frosting green and put candy canes in the center, for Easter yellow frosting and I tint coconut green and fill center with jelly beans, etc. For birthdays I find out favorite candy or such and decorate as close as I can. People pay me to make them for occasions. It is such an easy cake to make and decorate.
