Can I add tylose to MMF to stiffen it, like I would regular fondant? I need to make a mortarboard for a grad cake and I need it pretty stiff to hold up.
...and how much should I use?
I have addied tylose to my mmf and have had no probs.. I is no where close to being as hard as gumpaste and it does take a bit longer to dry so plan accordingly. I would think it would be fine for a grad cap though. let it dry as long as possib. I do my bows and #'s using tylose and mmf.. hth
i use tylose when making figurines out of mmf though i never really measure it. i just add a pinch at a time. i stop adding when i feel the mmf are starting to get 'rubbery'. i'm not sure if i used the right term =) hope that helped you in a way =)
Thanks! I will try it.
