I'm trying to find a large bottle of Glycerin. I've tried pharmacy and health food stores and no one seems to know what I'm talking about. I did find some on but the shipping was as much as the glycerin. Does anyone know where I can find this stuff? Buying the Wilton glycerin is becoming expensive.

Thanks in Advance.

I get it at Michaels Craft store, by the flavorings, but it only comes in a small bottle, which only makes one batch. I would love to know where to get a bigger bottle. Hope that helps.

Do you have a cake dec. supply any where close to you? Even if they don't carry it, they can order it for you.

The last time I got it was at a pharmacy but I actually had to ask for it because they kept it behind the counter.

I get it at the Meijer pharmacy. Don't know if you have a Meijer by you.

What are you using so much of it for? I had a(1) bottle for *years*!

I'm using it for fondant. I like Michelle Foster's recipe and it calls for Glycerin. I don't have Meijer pharmacy by me. I may have to ask at the Walmart pharmacy next time I'm there.

Oh and the small Wilton bottles are too expensive and too small. I go through them too fast. I also don't have a cake supply store least that I'm aware of.

Does anyone know anywhere I can buy it online?
