Those of you who put tylose in fondant for flowers and figure making et., how much tylose do you put in what amount of fondant? This makes it dry hard just like gum paste right? Any advice would be appreciated thank you all so much.

i just made 24 3D pokemon figures for cupcakes with fondant and tylose. I watched this video first.



And all my figures dried just like gumpaste BUT they didnt have that faded look that gumpaste has when it dries, which i was happy about icon_smile.gif hope that helps!

p.s.
ill be using fondant with tylose from now on, no more gumpaste for me icon_smile.gif

I have a post-it note stuck to my computer monitor that says "1t. Tylose to 8 oz. fondant." Now I have no idea where I found that bit of info, but I'll share it.
