I have been trying for hours now and cannot find a post that specifies how much tylose powder should I add to my fondant. What is the ratio?

Thanks to all for your help!

I never really measure. I sprinkle (maybe about 1 tsp or a little bit more?) for fondant the size of two tennis balls?

You will actually feel it if it is in the gumpaste consistency. If you pull it off, it will have a clean break rather than a stretchy one.

Like the others I don't measure it either. When it gets tight and a bit harder to knead I stop adding.

Aine2 has a video where she explains how much...I don't recall the amount but I think she uses 1 tsp per...pound? You might want to check the links in her profile; I cannot recall which website she posted the video on!
