Hello CC users! I'm very new to this fascinating cake world. I made mmf and turned out great. I was told that to make it harder I could add gumpaste or tylose powder. What I want to do is try a figurine and would like for it to harden. I did a number two and it kind of fell apart. Not sure why. Question is should I use gumpaste or tylose and whats the difference. Any help?? I'd greatly appreciate it! thumbs_up.gifbirthday.gif

I would use gumpaste. It hardens nicely.

Hello. You can use fondant with a 50/50 mix of fondant mixed with gumpaste or add 1/2 tsp. of tylose to fondant to help it dry faster and harder. I have used both methods but prefer the tylose. It just takes and extra step out of the process by either making or buying gumpaste. If you go to youtube there are some great tutorials from aine2 using fondant with tylose to make figurines.
