i was wondering about this yesterday as a matter of fact. i googled fixodent and cake central and found that some ppl do use this in place of tylose. it was mentioned the main ingredient is the same as well.

im not sure if i am allowed to post the link but if you search planet cake in google book, they have recipes and pics of how they ice and cover the cake. its worth looking at if you want to try this out.
i have been a member for a little over a year now. i think it is generous of people when they share techniques or post tutorials and are in general helpful. if it were not for this site, i would not know half of what i know about cakes. i read everything i can get my hands on to understand how to do things. i also understand when someone does not want to share how they do something because it has taken much of their time and im sure a lot of trial and error. i absolutely...
