Does tylose do the same thing when added to fondant as Wilton's gum tex? Can they be used interchangeably? Which is better? icon_confused.gif

In a word, yes. Gum Tex is the Wilton version of Tylose. Personally I like Tylose better but they can be used interchangeably.

They're interchangable in the way that a Cadillac and a Ford are interchangable...

Tylose is bright white and doesn't stink. It makes much stretchier gumpaste than gumtex. If you can get Tylose, use it.

You can order tylose online or buy it from a cake decorating supply shop, if there's one in your area.

Thanks for the advice. I loved the Ford, Cadillac comparison!
