I need to make fondant this time because I won't be able to get to the supply store. Which one from this site do you fondant makers use and I'll also need to make decorations out of it so how much tylose do I use based on the recipes?

I use both MMF and MFF. Both are great. When I use tylose I add about 1 tbsp to a 1/2 batch of fondant. If it is too stiff after it has rested, add a bit more fondant. If not stretchy enough add a bit more tylose. I find that different brands of tylose react differently to the fondant.

Thanks dsilvest. I was talking about fondant made without marshmallows; I should have been more specific; sorry. Is mff made with marshmallows? Anyone else make fondant (not mmf) and which one; how much tylose do you add to full or half recipe?

MFF or Michele Foster's Fondant does not contain marshmallows. I have added the link to the recipe and a post that should answer questions that you might have. Please read the entire recipe and the original post (you don't need to read the entire post) before starting. This will save you a lot of time, ingredients, and aggravation.

Adding about 2-3 tsp. of Tylose to approximately 1 cup of fondant will make a very nice gumpaste for you. The amounts are approximate based on the humidity level in your area, the warmth or coolness of your hands, and how stiff or soft you like your gumpaste to be.
