A[SIZE=4]I have been reading the threads on making fondant numbers using fondant or MMF mixed with tylose or gum paste ...but...has anyone used fondant by itself with 3 days to dry ? [/SIZE]
I started experimenting with Wilton brand fondant (for figures and things only) because it's what Lesley Wright (The Royal Bakery) uses and if you see her stuff...well, you'll know why I was willing to try it...
(she doesn't even add tylose, by the way)
I love it...and it's definitely dry after 3 days.
I haven't specifically made a number though.
ATHANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH. ..it s my first number topper and I saw a tutorial on YouTube - they only used fondant. But it seems like everyone here on CC uses a fondant combination and I got scared..its for this weekend..thanks again!
AThanks so much....i had seen a tutorial on youtube and they didnt use anything with the fondant, but i was looking for another tutorial just to be comfortable with doing it since its my first fondant topper..and when i got on here i saw that everyone on CC is using a fondat combination...but thank you for respoinding!!
Yeah...all I've ever used was MMF + tylose myself, but I have to admit, I like not having to add tylose to the Wilton's.
I have done it.
I do a lot of vegan cakes and my gumpaste contains egg whites so I cannot use it in my toppers and accents.
I just use straight fondant and give it extra time to dry. I normally allow a week.
