I've gotten it from www.countrykitchensa.com. It was about $4 and change last time I got it.

I have been told that you can use Gumtex (Wilton makes it) if you don't have tylose. It is my understanding that you have to use quite a bit more gumtex to achieve the same result as using tylose.

I've never tried it and I order my tylose online.

This may sound silly but what is Tylose used for?

I personally use tylose to make fondant firmer, stronger, dry faster and turns it to the same consistensy as gumpaste. I also use it to make tylose glue-- tylose mixed with water.

Thanks! I noticed it on the golda's kitchen website and wondered what it was. Sounds like it would be handy to have around!

For the price, I find it better to order CMC from www.chefrubber.com. They sell is in quantities of 100g for $5 or 500g for $17 vs most cake decorating sites and stores that sell it for $4-5 for a 55g jar.
