I am looking for a foolproof homemade fondant that you add Tylose to. I bought my Tylose, but want to make the Fondant from scratch. I want to put this thru my Cricut Personal Cutter. Does anyone have a recipe to share that worked for them with the Cricut Cutter?
Is there any other info out there or tutorials on using the cricut and Fondant in cutting out shapes, letters, etc.???? Please help me someone. Take me under your wing! Guide me please!
my elmo that I just made is mmf with tylose in the decorations
Lorraine McKay just usually buys her fondant and adds tylose. So If you want to make it yourself I would suggest MFF (Michelle Fosters Fondant). I have added tylose to MFF and MMF and it works great either way.
I don't have a cricut, so I can't attest to that, but I make and use MFF always and that's all I use. I add tylose to it all the time for my figures, etc.
What does tylose do to the fondant. I use Michele Fosters fondant with out it and love the recipe. So am curious as to what tylose does?
The tylose helps it harden and dry faster, it bonds it together so it is more like gumpaste. I only use this for making figures, flowers, plaques, etc.
to simplify, tylose turns fondant to gumpaste. not quite the same, but close enough for most projects.
Thanks for the link. But has anyone tried it with the cricut? Or does the Tylose just make any fondant good enough to use in the cricut? Where is the other recipe? Michelle's Fondant?
Never mind I found it! Still need the question answered about the cricut though? anyone try the homemade fondant with tylose? Thanks.
Also, can I add the tylose to MMF? Thanks again!
you can add the tylose to any fondant.
as for the cricut, i havent tried it, but i believe it will work with any gumpaste, and this is close enough. i would at least be optimisitic! just add the tylose to a small bit fondant so you can experiment.
