I am not familiar with glycerin. I would like to try a fondant recipe with glycerin as an ingredient. Is there any subsitute for glycerin? Thanks

Wilton makes glycerin and you can buy it at JoAnn's or Michael's etc.

Sometimes you can find it in the pharmacy too near the first aid stuff.

edit to add.....yet another site that CC finds a need to block....sorry! You can find Wilton Glycerin pretty readily though!

I get it readily at the pharmacy section at Walmart. It comes in a larger bottle and cheaper than Wilton. I not only use it in fondant, but it is excellent for reconstituting thickened or dried out paste colors.

Some pharmacists advise not to use the glycerine sold in drug stores. If you look at the label it usually states for external use only.
Try looking in a health food store. Some sell it.
