Adding CMC powder to Cake Fondant?
Hi, I was wondering how much CMC powder i add to 500grams of Fondant. If you know a website that has these measurements I would luv it, Cheers!

All I've been able to find says 2 teaspoons to one pound, so for 500 grams, about a teaspoon, I'd say. Here's a forum on a cake decorating board, maybe you could join and post there.
Here's a recipe for making fondant that includes CMC:
Homemade Roll Fondant
2 pounds 10X confectioner's sugar
1/2 tablespoon CMC, tylose or gum tragacanth (see note)
1/2 cup glucose (see note)
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons very hot water (You may add more water depending on the texture you wish to give it.)
Makes 2 1/2 pounds fondant.
