how much do you add? I always seem to add too little or too much. Is there a ratio that anyone uses?

I use about 1/4 tsp. to a baseball sized ball of fondant.

I used 1 tsp to 1 lb of fondant. Worked great in the Wilton, not as well in the new Duff.

In my modeling classes with Lorraine McKay (aine2), we used 1tsp./1lb. with Satin Ice and 1/2 tsp./1lb. w/Wilton and it worked beautifully.

I just made a shopping bag cake and wanted stiff walls that I could trim. I needed them to be flexible enough to put on the cake, but to stay stiff and not schlump after application. I used Wilton fondant with the 1/2 tsp./1lb. and the result was perfect. I use this same recipe for my tissue paper and figures, too.

As for Duff's fondant, I understand that's chocolate/candy melt based, and adding tylose to those types of fondant doesn't work well because of all of the oil and milk solids in them
