Will tylose work to toughen up MMF? I'm making a book cake this week and I need the cover to be stiff. The tutorial threads suggest using tylose, which I've never used before, but I think most people use it in regular fondant. Does anyone know if it works the same in MMF and if so, what the proportions are? Thanks!

I use it in MMF all the time for making figures and bows etc I dont measure it though. I just sprinkle a little on and knead it in until I get the consistency I need. You dont need much. Ive seen some people on here say 1 tsp per lb of fondant (I think). Ive never made that much at one time though.

Yes, I've used it as well. Mine took a couple days to dry.
