Does anyone use Fondx? Have you ever mixed it with gumpaste to make flowers, ribbons, bows etc.?

I have used it and mixed it with gum paste to make flowers. Works just fine. And it tastes pretty good as well.

I use Fondyx for covering my cakes, I addTylose to the Fondyx along with Extra Hold Fixodent Powder to model with. I actually don't buy gumpaste any more.

When mixing fixodent & tylose to fondant, how do you determine how much to add?

Superstar - you don't have any problems with it (the straight fondx not the one you had added to for modelling) being too sticky & stretchy with the humidity? I have found it to be difficult to use when its warm & humid

ozcake, it is soft but I knead some cornstarch/cornflour to make it less soft & it works perfectly. Humidity is PITA, but I have found adding the cornstarch works really well, let me know how you get on if you decide to try it.

Thanks Superstar -the cornflour doesn't make it crack at all does it? I have heard that it can dry things out and make it crack but not sure if that is an urban myth or not?

No ozcake, I have never had a crack happen. You actually don't knead in that much cornflour in order to make it more manageable.
