Does tylose powder help dry fondant decorations? I have to make fondant butterflies and need them to dry quickly. Will this do the trick? Where can I find it? How do I use it?
Yes, it will dry up your fondant. I like using it better than gumpaste only because I have found that my pieces are not as fragil as gumpaste. But.. I don't like to use it on marshmellow fondant, they don't seem to dry up well. I use Wilton fondant for that.
I just knead it right into the fondant when I'm ready to start making my pieces. You will notice that the fondant will feel thick right away.
Yes, I always add tylose to my MFF when I making figures or decorations that need to dry. I found it at my local cake supply store. It's pretty cheap & it last for a while because you only need to add 1-2 tsp for every fist size amount of fondant.
What stores can I find those powder in
Any store that sells cake supplies should carry it. I buy ck brand, but wilton also carries it. Stores; Michaels, Joanne's, Hobby Lobby, any cake supply store.
I use it with mmf all the time & it works fine!
