Has anyone ever put tylose powder in mmf before? Does it help it with the tearing? What does it do for it? I am looking to stabilize it a little more. I have read some where that it is used in some of the more complicated recipes. k thanks for your help in advance.
I use tylose added to mmf when I want if to dry quickly and harder eg. a shoe.
I just take the amount of mmf I need for whatever I am making and I pour a little tylose onto the counter and knead it into the mmf.
I can't give specific amounts of tylose to mmf, I just eye ball it!
thank you, for responding. does the mmf get a hard as gum paste, when you do this? Or can you cut through it still if i were to use it on a cake? does that make sense.
It doesn't get rock hard but it does get rigid and I don't think you would really want a rigid piece of mmf to chow down on, it would have a not so nice mouth feel I think.
You could still cut through it but you wouldn't want to chew it!
thank you this helps alot.
The ratio I was given by an artist on CC was 1 tsp. Tylose to 12 oz of MMF. This works really well for me.
momverden, I'm not sure if you've tried Rhonda's Ultimate MMF. It has corn syrup as its stablizer and I've not had any issues with tearing when I use this recipe. Plus, it's pretty good tasting without being super sweet.
khoudek, no i have not tryed it yet but i might have to. I am always willing to try something new (to me that is). thanks
Rhonda's MMF is the only one I've ever used so I cannot compare it to anything else, but it is really good and everyone who I let taste it always says wonderful things about the taste! And it is really simple to make.
Is Rhonda's recipe listed here on CC?
I couldn't find it. Could you post a link to it, please?
