I tried wood filler. It has 2 problems. One is it's too fragile. you can't put fine details in because you can break them off. Second, it's tan. It's hard or impossible to make the pastel colors that you see on a lot of icing because the tan affects the color. It does have the right amount of shine.
I also tried plaster of paris, 2 clays and several paste epoxies. They all have problems. I'm mixing thickeners with the epoxy I'm using. Even those have problems.
