If you have a pasta maker try sending the fondant and lace through together.

Thin the fondant out a bit first by passing through several times. Make it thinner each time. On the third time try it with the lace.

It works even better if you add some tylose to the fondant or 50/50 gumpaste/fondant. It doesn't stretch as much or lose its shape.

Okay so far I read plenty of people put tylose or 50/50 fondant gumpast when doing things.
So does everyone use these methods when using fondant for say covering a cake or making ribbons?
What is a good recipe for gumpaste?
And when people make flowers like the poppies or something do they use this combination or just gumpaste?
When you are making animals do you also use a 50/50 ratio?
and when I color the fondant gumpaste do I need to alter the liquid ratio because of the food coloring?
when peoople make that demask design how do they do it?

Thanks for any help icon_lol.gif
