CMC (carboxymethyl cellulose) powder is used like tylose powder to make fondant stiffer and sturdier (but not hard) when used in silicone molds and for hand modelling. To use, knead 1 tsp. CMC into 1 lb. of fondant and allow to sit for at least 1/2 hour, preferably overnight. For stiffer fondant to be used like gumpaste, use up to 3 tsp. per pound of fondant. To make an edible gel-like glue for use in making flowers or attaching fondant and gumpaste decorative items, dissolve 1 tsp. CMC in 1/4 c. warm water.
