Can I add tylose powder to fondant to speed the drying time for making a high heel shoe? Has anyone tried it and it was successful?

You can also dry it quicker by putting it in the oven with just the oven light on for about 4 hours.

Ugh, man - I could've used this post a couple weeks ago! How much tylose powder would you add?

I think it's 1 to 2 tsp per pound. I never measure I just add some and go by feel.

You could also mix gumpaste and fondant 50/50. I made a shoe out of pure gumpaste and it dried so fast, I barely had time to finish it!

Be careful if you use the oven light to help dry it. Depending on the watts of the light bulb, it might get to warm and "melt" it. I did this with some rose buds and they "melted", but I was able to somewhat shape them back into place. It didn't really matter since the petals would cover the buds.
