No. Unless you have a very large, specialized cake decorating store nearby, it has to be ordered online.

Have you thought about trying making your own with Light corn syrup and sugar?

I made some last week and it was really easy and came out really well

I used the recipe off this blog

Well, that's making your own hot sugar for pulled/cast sugar. It's not making isomalt.

It can certainly work for some applications, but it does have a slight yellow cast to it and it returns to the syrup stage faster under humid conditions.

There are ways to remove the yellowish cast from cooking sugar instead of isomalt. If you are careful as you cook the sugar with the distilled water, you will be able to skim impurities off the top of the water. This will help eliminate a lot of the yellow color in cooked sugar.

Very true, but for people unfamiliar with it, the coloring also comes from cooking it just a little too hot, too. Isomalt is more forgiving in that department, too. And it does deal w/ humidity better.
