Hi everyone,
I just got a cookie book by Lindy Smith. She has a fondant recipe for cookies (although I'm sure you could use it on anything). Anyway, it calls for liquid glucose. Is that the same thing as corn syrup? Or will corn syrup work? I googled it and basically it said that liquid glucose is available in Europe and not the U.S.
Let me know if you think the corn syrup can sub out for the glucose.

I went ahead and used the corn syrup and turned out great!! I just thought I would let you know in case anyone else has this question! =o)

They sell glucose at Michaels (I think). It's just liquid sugar though so corn syrup makes sense. Was it good?

Liquid glucose is available in us and canada, you can find it at any michael's or bulk barn (canadian).

It gives the fondant pliability.

Glad the corn syrup worked out for you.

If you can get white (clear) corn syrup it does not darken the colour of the fondant. They sell it in Canada. Not sure about the States.
