Make in Advance:  One of the best things about Tylose is that you can make decorations several weeks in advance.  Mix Tylose in with fondant until fondant is easier to work with.  If the fondant with Tylose becomes too dry, add more fondant.

Storing Characters:  If you do make things in advance then don’t store them in sweaty plastic where they’ll droop but in a cardboard box. If you have spare fondant, you can store it double-wrapped tightly in clingfilm and then in an airtight plastic container to avoid it drying out. It should last you for 3-4 weeks.  You can cut the modeling icing into small portions, wrap well, and freeze.  Do not store in refrigerator!

Tylose Glue:  You can also make an edible glue with tylose by mixing 1/4 tsp of the powder with 2 tbsps of warm water and leaving in the fridge overnight. This will make a syrupy mixture that’s great for sticking bits and bobs together on your cake.
