Is Wilton Gum-Tex like Tylose powder? I would prefer Tylose powder but I can't seem to find it any where. To order it online through Global Sugar Art they want more for shipping than what the actual product is worth.
TIA

Hi, it works the same, there is a recipe on the back to make gumpaste. and you can mix it in fondant to dry faster or use it without for figurines or other decorations.

I sent you a private email about this issue.

They both do the same thing, though some prefer one to another.

I have used gum-tex with fondant for years because it is what I can easily get locally. I have bought some tylose powder and find that I like mixing gum-tex with fondant over tylose with fondant. If I was buying the powder to actually make gumpaste from scratch I'd probably go with the tylose.
