CMC (carboxymethyl cellulose) powder is used like tylose powder to make fondant stiffer and sturdier (but not hard) when used in molds, with cutters, and for hand modelling.
To use, knead 1 tsp. CMC into 1 lb. of fondant (scale for smaller amounts 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 and allow to sit for 12 hours before use.
