If I add tylose powder to MMF will it dry hard like gum paste? I don't like how hard gum paste dries but I want to be able to use the MMF for things like flowers but it to melt in your mouth and not break a tooth still, or if anyone has any other ideas on how to get fondant stronger to work with without changing the end result of the fondant, I've kind of made it my mission to defy the norms of cake decorating like how some people use nontoxic chalk for petal dust I used the dye tablets from an agg dying kit ( and yes I made sure it's safe it's just powdered food coloring compressed into tablet form)

It will make it stiff but will not harden it completely like gumpaste.  Have you ever made pastillage?

I just read it dries harder than gum paste? I'm looking for the pliability and strength of gum paste without it drying so hard

Use 50/50 fondant gumpaste. If you use 100% gumpaste it will be rock hard. If you use the mix it will be hard still a bit pliable.
