Have a problem with fondant roses and fondant bows wilting over time? CMC, or Sodium Carboxy Methyl Cellulose, is the most widely used additive for rolled fondant. Used to give FondX or Elite by FondX gum paste like qualities to be made into bows, flowers, figures, or decorative accents in order for the fondant to dry properly into the designer's intended shapes. Use as an edible glue by mixing 2 tsp CMC powder with 1/2 cup of luke warm water & stir to make a gel like adhesive to glue gum paste flowers or other decorative items.
Knead 1 tea spoon of dry CMC with 1lb of FondX or Elite by FondX very well, and then allow fondant to rest for a half hour before using. Add more CMC for a faster drying effect.
