I need to purchase Tylose but I cannot find any around and I need it tonight. Any ideas for those who live in southeast Michigan where I can buy some? Michaels, JoAnns. and Hobby Lobby don't sell Tylose. I know a place in Saline may have some, but I don't have time to drive out there and I think they are closed on Mondays anyway. Any help is greatly appreciated!! icon_smile.gif

OR let me explain:::::I am trying to make a graduation cap from SugarShacks video...she uses tylose to make the fondant dry faster and not stretch as much ( I think)...so my question is....if I cannot find tylose is gumpaste my only option and what is the difference between the two? I thought gumpaste would be stretchier which I want to avoid, I want it to dry faster and be easier to work with. Any suggestions?

Heinrich's on 10 Mile, just east of Van Dyke in Centerline sells it.

You can use Wilton's GumTex in this case. It's not exactly the same but will give you very similar results. Use the same amounts.
