Alright, so my first supplier didn't have any satin ice GP... and i forgot to go to my other supplier before they closed.

Can I just add tylose to my fondant to make a cake topper (the number 80) and my flowers, as well as a little shoe from a chocolate mold?

TIA!

i think it should be fine but maybe u should wait for someone more experienced in working with fondant!
good luck!

Yes you can !! I usually go by trial & error ( add a little bit, knead it in & if it still feels too soft, add some more ! )

Hope this helps icon_biggrin.gif

Sure can, just sprinkle a little in and knead, you will feel it stiffening. Adding tylose to fondant makes gumpaste.
