Some have mentioned adding tylose to fondant for sculpting? Does this make it dry quicker, more like gum paste? Do you recommend it?

Yes, Tylose is a brand of CMC/gum tragacanth(sp?).
I have used it almost exclusively in Nic Lodge's recipe. It's greaticon_smile.gif Did try some gt once or twice but it had been given to me and was old. Don't knowif that had anything to do w/it but my gp was more tan than white.

I high recommend CMC (carboxymethylcellulose) from www.chefrubber.com... MUCH cheaper than the small bottles of Tylose (CMC with dextrose) that most cake supply stores carry.

CMC is for me as well. Always use it with fondant and make the models. icon_smile.gif
