Any tips or ideas would be very helpful.
So here is my problem, every time I make any fondant figure it flattens out or dose not hold its shape very well.
Anyone with any tips or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much
Add some tylose, gum trag or cmc to stiffen it up.
Try mixing in a bit of Tylose powder.
I add about 1/2 tsp Tylose to about a 3 - 4" size ball of fondant, kneed it in well you'll begin to feel the fondant become more elasticy (not a word lol).
It will help your fondant figures dry quicker/harder.
Also if you place the figures on a piece of sponge it will not flatten as much as it dries.
If you don't have Tylose you can mix 50/50 fondant/gumpaste together for the same result.
