i have added 1tsp of tylose powder to 125 grams of fondant. The fondant is not pliable or easy to work with, does anyone know why? I have kneaded it for about 15 minutes to no avail! help!

adding tylose to fondant increases it's durability-makes it stiff and hard, for figures and flowers-if you want your fondant more pliable-glucose should of been added-depending if it was mmf or store bought. hth
