I usually sculpt with a 50/50 mixture of fondant/gumpaste. I don't feel like making gumpaste today as I don't have all the ingredients on hand, but I do have tylose.
I think I've read somewhere here that you can just add some tylose to the fondant. (of course, I can't get the search feature to cooperate)
Does this make the fondant harden better? How much tylose do I need to add to say a 4oz piece of fondant?
TIA...I appreciate your help!
Of course deb, I do it all the time. I never really measure how much tylose I add. One indication I use is when it pull both apart, it separates withouth the stickiness--not sure how to explain it.
What benefit does the tylose add? I mean will it help my pieces harden or keep shape better then if I just used fondant alone?
I'm sculpting the 3 little mice from Cinderella.
Exactly. Once I put tylose on fondant, I'll call it gumpaste. You will usually see a huge difference in the consistency once it has set for about an hour or so but I always it right away.
OK, awesome.....I just mixed some in and I can definitely tell the difference in texture already.
This is a LOT easier then making both fondant and gumpaste. Man, why does it take me 25 yrs to figure these things out!! Ughhhhhh!!!
Thank you so much RylanTY!
No problem and good luck. =]
