Yes it does - a lot of people add cmc to fondant to give it the same texture. It's much more stretchy, you can roll it thinner and it dries solid. I buy mine from Squires already mixed - not the cheapest way to do it, but I get the same result everything that way :) x

Tracy if you add cmc? tmc? powder to the fondant, does that make it Gumpaste? I don't even know what the powdery stuff is that I added to my flowers this weekend but they seemed to dry in the proper way that flowers should?

You're very welcome Carlette. Remember to use Gumpaste/Flowerpaste for these though - it makes the butterflies as hard as porcelain. I'll look forward to seeing them in your gallery x

Tracy, this tutorial is perfect! I cannot believe you put so much work into all of those butterflies!! There is no way I could have made that many in such a short time frame! I also love how you add your choice of music...I do my best creating when I have music playing...usually violin, piano, and flute. You get my five stars!!!! (along with two thumbs up and two toes up!!) hee hee
