We prefer rolled buttercream, so that is what I have on hand. I'd like to make a simple cake with some flowers. Can I add tylose to the rolled buttercream and achieve the same workability as adding tylose to fondant?

Hi there:
I have heard of using candy clay to mix in with the rolled buttercream, that will give you a more fondant workability. But I wouldn't use tylose in the rolled buttercream. Maybe someone with more expierience can offer some advice? icon_smile.gif

No, I don't think adding tylose to RBC will give you a positive result. The tylose is a gum that works together with the gums & gelatin in the fondant or gum paste to increase stretch and hasten drying.

I agree that mixing it with candy clay, modeling chocolate, or fondant will make it stiffer so that accents can hold their shape.
