I always thought pastillage was a big complicated thing and when I looked it up the recipe was super simple... but that could be deceptive. Does anyone use it? If so do you have a particular recipe or tips that you use?

I have made it--it's good for flat stuff. <<< This is a great thread on it.

I've used it a couple of times, but I find it very fragile. It seems to break so easily. Perhaps I'm not making it properly, or I have errors in my technique, but I haven't had a ton of luck with it.

it's easy to do but it's also easy to mess up. Give it a try. Alana, well made pastillage is very strong and can actually bear a significant amount of weight, but at the same time if a piece isn't constructed well one little tap can send it all crumbling. It's a very fickle product.
