I need your advice please..... icon_lol.gif

Since I didn't have any gumpaste available I used fondant with a good amount of tylose added for some cake toppers. The problem is that it is still too soft. It has been 3 days!!. Is there a way to make them harder or should I just redo them out of gumpaste? This is for a cake for next week. Btw, I used Duff's fondant.

Hi there, fondant mix with tylose won't set hard as gumpaste. What did you make with the paste?

I would use gumpaste for the shoes. I always use gumpaste to make the shoes. icon_smile.gif

If I remember correctly, the "Duff" fondant that you can get from craft stores is really fonarific which does not dry out. (Duff fondant from commercial sources like is Satin Ice on the inside). Adding tylose to other brands (like Satin Ice) does make it work like gumpaste - that's what we use for all out figures.
