Does anyone know where I could find Tylose powder or any substitute in North Carolina or Michigan? Any answers would be much appreciated! Thanks.
I think you should just check your yellow pags to find the closest cake decorating supply stores and give them a call. I can't find tylose anywhere nearby except for at cake supply stores, and I'm in Los Angeles. It's a specialty product so nobody else has any reason to stock it.
Otherwise, you'd be best just to order it on the internet.
Confectioners Wares is NC. I don't know exactly where and I do believe it's an on-line store only but they do carry tylose.
NC Paper Co in Clayton, NC probably carries it (not 100% sure as I was there only the one time and didn't need it but they do have a lot of cake items).
I will have my sister look at those places in NC. I am stunned to hear that you can't find it in LA! now I know why I can't find it in northern Michigan! thanks for answering! I am sure it will help.
Oh I can definitely find it in L.A.! But what I mean is, even in L.A., I can't find it anywhere EXCEPT for cake supply stores. Even my favorite restaurant supply store, Surfas, which has a huge inventory of baking-related supplies including all sorts of random stuff, doesn't have tylose. Fortunately the cake shop is closer than that store anyway
Good luck on your search!
I'm in MI also and can't find a store near me that sells it. I just order it online now to save the hassle.
