Well, I finally got some tylose powder to add to my gumpaste... hopefully this will solve my drying/hardening issues I've been having. Can somebody tell me how much powder to add to a pound of gumpaste?

There is a thread on Cake Central that answers these questions... I cannot for the life of me get it to paste onto this email. So, the only way you can get to it is to go to "Search" and type in "tylose powder" or "fondant figures" ... it will come up... sorry I cannot be helping you better, but the site is acting funny again tonight.

Hi there, I use tylose/cmc powder with fondant to make gumpaste. Mix 1/2 a teaspoon to 250g of fondant. I haven't heard about mixing tylose with gumpaste. The other thing that you can do is mix 50/50 of fondant and gumpaste.

I add 1 tsp. Tylose to 12 oz of my MMF. I have done tons of cookies with this mix and just love it. If it should get a little stiff, just put it in the microwave for a few seconds. I don't know about gumpaste so maybe just try a small portion to see how it works.
