Does anyone else out there model with MMF mixed with tylose powder? Is there another type of homemade fondant that works well for modeling (and that tastes good). Most of the cakes that I make are for children and they tend to eat the figurines.
I was just wondering the same thing. I have made puppies and other things with the MMF by itself and did not have any problem. I was also wondering if I should be adding the tylose powder for my figurines.
Yeah, absolutely, I always add some tylose powder when using straight-up fondant to model (especially if I know the figures will not be consumed, or at least are more meant to be decorative than eaten). IT works pretty well, but remember that a little bit can go a long way, and it dries much more quickly when you add tylose, so you may have to work a little more quickly as well.
