IF ANYONE KNOWA OF ANY EMERGENCY SUBSTITUTES FOR TYLOSE OR CMC POWDER, I WOULD APPRECIATE THE INFO. THERE ARE NO CAKE DECORATING SHOPS NEAR ME, THE CLOSEST SHOP IS 75 MILES AWAY AND THEY ARE CURRENTLY OUT. MY DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY IS THURSDAY. SHE WANTS BUTTERFLIES ON HER CAKE AND I'M GOING TO CUT VARIOUS SIZES AND SHAPES OUT OF FONDANT AND SATIN ICE AND AFTER TRIAL RUN, I THINK I SHOULD PUT TYLOSE POWDER IN. i DON'T WANT TO USE ALL OF MY GUMPASTE, IF I CAN HELP IT. THANKS FOR READING...TOO LONG!! THANKS

Modeling paste? It rolls out thin and dries hard. Maybe you have the ingredients to make this?

Mix in a good bit of cornstarch with the SatinIce. It works!

And please take your caps lock off. It's the written equivalent of screaming at us.

Can you mix 50/50 gumpaste and fondant? That way you're not using all of your gumpaste but it will dry stiffer.

Wilton sales gum-tex, you can find it at craft stores.

I've also read in the past about people using denture powder, like fixadent.

Ditto on the fixadent powder! I heard that from an instructor, but I can't remember which one.
