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?

I am not sure of the recipe that you are using but it probably is ok or add a little more

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.
