Hello! I need your help. I want to add Tylose to my fondant to make it strong like gum paste, but I don't know how much or the best way to do it. My problem is I'm making some accents with fondant, wanted to do others in gum paste, but couldn't match the colors. So I'm hoping adding Tylose will do the trick.

Any tips, advice, or suggestions??? TIA!

I should measure one day...but the test is when you pull your fondant into two pieces and the fondant pops apart...not strings apart.

I probably add 5 - 6 teaspoons of Tylose to a 24 ounce package of Wilton fondant. You just knead it in. I cut the brick of fondant into four pieces and work with one piece at a time. Much easier on the hands.

i put 1/2 teaspoon of gumtex in every 8 ounces of fondant. We dont have colored fondant available here and no gumpaste at all so i make everything from scratch. This quantity works perfect. It dries fast so u have to keep it covered and better be quick in working.

Lorraine uses what amounts to the same as a block of wilton premade fondant. Donna lane uses wilton with tylose added..
