Hi, I've been hanging out here for a while, and trying to learn as much as I can I'm making a cake for my cousin's baby shower Nov 7th, and using MMF to make a flower, baby, and safari animals (she's adopting from Ethiopia) I've never used tylose before, but read that it helps the fondant dry firmer and more quickly. I kneaded a little bit into my fondant yesterday and made the baby (1st impression mold) and the flowers. They are drying, but not as quickly as I had hoped.
So, my questions: 1.how do you add the tylose to your fondant? 2.How much tylose do you add? 3. How long does it typically take to dry?
I tried to search, but didn't have much luck, probably user error, LOL. Sorry this is so long, and thanks in advance for any advice
I add 1tsp to 100g of fondant, but its best to experiment a bit.
I just sprinkle it over and knead it in.
My figurines are normally dry enough to handle them in 10 hours or so.
Thank you! I don't think I added nearly enough, I was afraid of adding too much. I'll follow your advice for the rest!
I was afraid of adding too much.
Start with a small ball, if its too stiff then add some plain fondant, this way you wont end up with a tub full
