Confectionery Arts' Tylose Powder has been specially formulated to resist humidity and improve pliability and elasticity in gumpaste.
This product can be used in place of Gum Tragacanth in gumpaste in the exact same proportions, and provide a gumpaste that is pure white in color and easier to work with.
Not only does it thicken sugarpaste for increased workability, it also improves freeze and thaw stability. This ensures a low bacteria count and a longer shelf life to similar products on the market. It also works as a great emulsifier, helping fat to distribute fat uniformly and prevent it from migrating to the surface.
With this powder, you can also transform sugarpaste to gumpaste by add 1-2 teaspoons to 1kg of fondant. See attached a fabulous example of sugar flowers created by Mish Patterson. It even makes a great edible liquid glue to be used for attaching decorations to your cakes.

To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
