I need to make some fondant roses that are very red, so I need to add alot of color plus it is humid out. If I add a little tylose powder will this help them dry? If so how much do I add? I tried making these with gumpaste and I didn't like the color, it seem dull and flat.
Thanks for any help
Sure, tylose will help them dry. Knead some in until you feel the fondant start to stiffen up.
You can also paint the dried gumpaste roses...but don't do it with Americolor's super red, it dries almost black You can use nontoxic chalk on them too, just grate it by rubbing it against a fine mesh strainer and then put it on with a paintbrush.
When I add tylose to fondant, I'll start calling it gumpaste.
If it separates with a crack, it's good. If it is stretchy, add some more.
