Tylose you can get from any Cake decorating shop or the internet.

Shortening is called Trex in the UK, you can get it from any supermarket in the butter aisle.

You could buy marshmallow from any supermarket too if you wanted to go down the MMF route,

You can order Tylose online, or if you have a Hobbycraft or kitchen/sugarcraft shop near you you can get Gum Tragacanth which does the same thing. As for shortening, Tesco and Sainsbury's have it with the butter (I'm sure other supermarkets do, these are just the only ones I'm familiar with) look for 'Trex'.

babapeela, there seemed to be a lawsuit long ago between cake central and the name you're trying to put together.

Maybe that's why.

There are recipes in the archives, but you might have to convert them to metric.

I recommend the Michele Foster Fondant Recipe

http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7432/michele-fosters-updated-fondant

It's great to work with, and has a great taste to it.

And if you have any questions about it, she always makes the time to answer.
