Does anyone use it and do you add tylose to it? I find that if I don't add tylose to it, it takes forever to dry plus it seems to soft to make the petals curl. I was making a rose the other night and I'd place the petal, get it the way I wanted it and next thing you know, the petal was just flopping down....Weird... Am I using it the wrong way maybe? Thanks for any suggestions..

I have used it forever without adding anything. It dries fast and is sturdy. The only thing is that it dries out really fast while you are working with it.

I agree. It's too soft and takes too long to dry. I have switched to teh Albert Uster gumpaste mix.

Satin Ice Gumpaste isn't actually gum paste. It's their fondant with other things added to it.

I tried it before and it was fine--never bought another bucket though. If it is too soft, just add tylose. Now, all I use is fondant with tylose, Nick Lodge's recipe and Fran's recipe.

I use it all the time. BUT I've found that wilton white fondant with a bit of tylose added works better.

I use the satin ice g/p because it rolls so thin and dries great. On occasion i do use tylose. I guess everyone is used to their own way.
