Wilton Fondant & Gum Paste, Class 4

I am done with the Fondant & Gum Paste course! This course was a lot of fun, and it was nice not having to make frosting for class every week. I definitely learned a lot, and will be making fondant cakes for every occasion.
Here is my final cake. It is another blackout cake from VWAV covered in chocolate buttercream from VCTOTW. It is filled with more chocolate buttercream and strawberry jam. This cake was super moist and delicious!I again chose not to do a cake from the course book and just combined a few of the things I learned throughout the course. I am really happy with the end results!

Your cakes look amazing.
One question, is vegan gum paste available? If you made your own could you share the recipe?
I'm getting ready to take the 2nd Wilton course and I can make my own Royal Icing, but the gum paste, no luck yet finding a recipe.
