I used pastillage but it dries within a minute, so u have to work fast. i would love to use gumpaste more, but i'm concerned about the fact that it may go soft
I have used fondant with tylose powder for bows, figures and animals and my cakes are always buttercream. I have never noticed them getting soft from sitting on the buttercream.
With the tylose powder you can control the amount you put in and that way if you want it rock hard you can up the amount. It does start to dry out faster than regular fondant, but even with the tylose powder added, I am able to roll it out several times before it gets too dry. I can make a bow with tylose and the loops are usually ready to use within 8 hours.
