Are they the same things? If I add Gum-Tex to fondant will it dry rock hard like gumpaste? If so how much do I need to add??
Thanks for your help!
They are not the same thing. However they are used for the same purpose - To make sugarpaste more pliable and dry hard.
I've only used gumtex once and I hated it. The recipe is somewhat complicated to me and then you have to let it rest overnight before you use it. I couldn't get it to dry very hard either.
Then i found a recipe for tylose gumpaste and it is so much simpler to make in my opinion and you dont need to let it rest overnight. I have added tylose to fondant and it worked just as good and I read that you can add gumtex to fondant also but i dont know for sure how much and if it has to rest overnight.
Thank you! I'm going to give it a try. I've got leftover brown fondant and need to make a treasure chest, but don't have gumpaste on hand. I figured I'd give it a shot! Thanks!
