Where to buy glucose and glycerin for making fondant in San Francisco?

I am looking for a baking supply store that sells glucose and glycerin to make cooked or rolled-out fondant for my son's birthday cake. Thanks so much!!

  1. Try Spun Sugar at 1611 University in Berkeley.

    1. Give a call to Sur la Table, they also carry some baking supplies if you don't want to trek out to the East Bay. If you are in Marin, there is Cake Art Supplies at 1512 5th Avenue near E. Street.

      1. Not sure about glucose, but Rainbow had glycerin for food use when I was there a couple of weeks ago. If you don't want to cross the bridge, you could also try Sugar'n'Spice in Daly City for glucose. It's a bit musty, but has a lot of decorating sugars, molds, etc.
