How much tylose do you guys normally add to fondant for figures? I typically use Wilton to make figures and added 2 tsp per pound. My fondant is stiff and I can't get out the cracks. Ugh. For my safari zoo cake, I think I only added 1 tsp. I am thinking tonight I will redo with only 1 tsp.

Probably not much help from me but to be honest I just do it by eye, If I'm working with a golf ball size I add a pinch so if I'm using double that then 2 pinches!! It's worked well for me with everything I've made with fondant.


Good Luck

AThanks. I'm going try about half what I used. Just frustrated that I possibly wasted a bunch of product

AI use about 1 tsp per 500g.
