Does anyone know where I could get Tylose powder in Toronto or London? I will be heading to downtown Toronto this week and thought it would be great if I could stop by a shop and buy it there.
Thanks!

Oh, I wish I was in that area. Because I would go to Mississauga and go to Golda's Kitchen!!! She has on online store that I purchase from goldaskitchen.com. That is where I buy my Tylose powder.
Good news is Mississauga is not far from Toronto thumbs_up.gif

Unfortuneatly,there is no cake supply store in London icon_cry.gif . Toronto,Golda's sounds like your best bet. McCalls Warehouse is a great place and great prices,but costs $25.00 for membership.

Thanks for your replies. If I had a car I would have gone to Mississauga...but unfortunately I was traveling by train. icon_cry.gif I guess I will have to resort to online shopping...was just trying to save myself the shipping costs!

Is there anything else that I could use instead of tylose powder that I could find more readily?

ncbert...noticed you live in London...me too! icon_smile.gif Wasn't expecting people on here from London. icon_smile.gif But I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised seeing that there are people from all over the world here!

What about gum tragacanth? I guess you'd have to order that too.

Wilton has their gum paste can...would that work for you?

Have you tried the Wilton Gum-Tex? I'm sure Michael's carries it and you could get one with a coupon and give it a try.

You can also try Geraldine Randlesome. I believe she has a shop you can go into and buy. She's in Toronto. Look up www.creativecutters.com.

McCalls also has a retail store. Check www.mccalls.ca and click on store.
Prices are better than other locations. I bought some last week at the warehouse and it was around $21 for a large container. It was not listed in their catologue so call or email for info.

I buy from Golda's on a regular basis and her shipping prices are super reasonable. When you click on your order it gives you a shipping cost right away if you scroll down. I found her Tylose price really good too. I usually wait until I need a few things and order all at once. They ship your order pretty much immediately, I recieved mine within 24 hours of ordering! It's great for my cake shopping addiction...not so good for the bank account. icon_wink.gif

Well it looks like Golda's won't be carrying tylose powder anymore icon_sad.gif Just as I was about to order it too! Anyone know where else I could buy it in Canada without having to pay customs fees?

icon_surprised.gificon_eek.gif What!! Oh no, I wonder why. That's too bad, I'll end up not ordering anything from them anymore if I have to get it somewhere else. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Ok, calm down people! I contacted Golda's Kitchen and the tylose powder is currently on back order. She has a masterpack of 144 units expected within the next few weeks.
I was a little scared myself when I heard you guys talking about her not having tylose powder anymore. Golda is very good if you have any questions, she will email you back right away. I will continue to do my business there as I am very happy with the service!

Pheww!! Calming down now. That's good, I really like how fast I get everything from there hassle free. I was dreading finding somewhere else!
