Looking for information on mixing MMF and gum paste to make a little stronger. MMF sometimes is too soft, but I don't want complete hardness. When do I mix them together? Can I just put gum paste powder with powder sugar when mixing? HELP

You can do a 50/50 mix of your fondant and gumpaste.
Prepare your fondant, prepare your gumpaste and then do the mix of equal amounts
Or you can take your fondant and add CMC powder and your fondant will get firmer.
I do the second process and I don't measure I just add a pinch of CMC powder because I usually need small amounts.
Maybe the experts can tell you more...
Good luck
