I have never used either of these products but I'm wondering if I could use the Wilton glucose that's available at my local Michael's to make fondant figures? Will it keep the fondant from cracking or will only Tylose do that?

Glucose will soften the fondant too much for figure sculpting. I use tylose to make fondant dry harder when using for figures.

Thanks misterc! I have done sculpted figures before without anything added...maybe I'll just stick with that. I can't get Tylose without ordering it.
