I'm making a fondant bow and heard you can add a little tylose to make it harden faster and harder. Is there any substitute for it? Could I substitute a little gum paste?
yeah you can do a 50/50 fondant gumpaste mix.
Wilton's GumTex will do the trick OR as stated above
I read on cc somewhere that the stuff people use to fix their dentures in place is good too and obviously safe to put in your mouth!
Have not tried it but when I run out of tylose I might just test drive that idea as I have to order everything from the US or UK anyway, who knows might just do the trick for decorative pieces not going to be eaten as I think it may taste a bit wacky!
