I've never seen an online store be sold out so consistantly. It's frustrating. Right when I see something I want to buy my eyes see the words Sold Out. Darn. Seems to me they're losing business.

They are currently in the process of revamping the store and the new line up will be introduced with the CakeCentral 3.0 release. (coming soon!)

They will be narrowing down what they carry so they can carry more and they are carrying items that they sell consistently.

I understand your frustration completely!!! I would love to shop CC exclusively but everytime I go shopping, it's SOLD OUT! UGG! I do hope changes are on the way 'cause CC is my website of choice!!

Heath has mentioned on another thread recently that Americolor will be completely restocked but it will not be until the new store is rolled out.

When, pray tell, will that be?

Keep an eye on this topic that Jackie and Heath are keeping updated about the new CakeCentral 3.0 Jackie did make a post about when to expect a downtime.

We understand the frustration, but please remember that we are not primarily a store, we are, first and foremost, an online community. The store only exists to help offset the costs of keeping CC free. Our goal is not to run a fully diverse store. We tried going that route last year, it was not fun, and took away from our primary objectives. This means we are having to re-evaluate everything we do with the shop.

We do have some things in the works to hopefully improve the shopping service, more details will be unveiled when appropriate (hopefully very soon)
