snowflakes

Hello, I made a load of snowflakes with a plunger shaper, I used ordinary sugarpaste/fondant. They set hard, but when I picked them up to move them, they just crumbled – should I have used flower paste. My stars were fine with the sugarpaste, but I guess that’s because they are a solid pattern. Thanks

Hi annescakes1

Yes you’re right. Add a little tylose or cmc to the sugarpaste for the snowflakes and they’ll be fine.
