Sorry if this has been asked before: I make my own gumpaste, and tylose is very expensive. Can I substitute gum-tex (by Wilton) for the tylose?

Thank you for answering. Can you tell me if you use the same measurement of gum paste as the recipe calls for tylose?

The recipe should be on the can or in the insert that came with it. If you can find it, I bet it's on the Wilton site.

I used to make the one that came on the can of gum-tex all the time and it will be fine.
