I have a can of Wilton gum-tex that I purchased when taking Wilton courses to make gum paste. My question is if you can add the dry gum-tex to fondant to make it more like gum paste rather than using this to make a batch of gum paste. If so, how much would I add? TIA!! icon_biggrin.gif

This is what I add to my fondant all the time to make things like the bows and figures. icon_smile.gif

I don't measure. I just mix and add until it fills like I want it too. I think Wilton suggests a 1 teaspoon to have a box of fondant. Or maybe it is 1 teaspoon to a box of fondant. Hmmm.

The more you add the stiffer it will fill and the faster it will dry out.

TY so much!! That's exactly what I wanted to know. I needed something to dry out fondant for some projects I'm working on and sounds like this will do the trick!!
