Wow that's a lot to take in with all the different goodies out there. I haven't seen gum pase in South Africa and JEM is closed for the holidays still :(
OK so out of the whole lot which would be best for making the brim of a cowboy hat please? I only have pre bought fondant (from Party Themes for those of you from South Africa :). I have found it difficult to work with when it's humid as it gets very sticky and shiny especially if it has to be coloured. I have started using powder colours and hope that will help with the shiny stickiness !
