You can use it to make gumpaste, to make a glue to hold your decorations on a cake, & you can mix it in fondant to make a sort of gumpaste substitute.

when using it for fondant do you just mix the powder into the fondant and do you know how much ?

You use it when you want your pliable fondant to become more stif so it can have better results with decorations. It is thus used in small amounts and not for covering the entire cake.
You must add 1 tsp of tylose powder to 250g fondant and knead until all the powder is well incorporated. Fo better results, I leave mine wrapped in cling film for an entire night.
Hopw this helps!!! icon_lol.gif
