Going home to N.Y. (yea!) for a visit and was wondering if it's worth stopping by. Have a non cake decorating friend tell me it was big but expensive.

I live in Jersey but I'm actually going there tomorrow. Your friend is right, it's more expensive than what you see online, but considering you have to pay shipping, you'd probably end up spending the same amount. I go there when I'm in the City only to pick up a few thing; they do have a pretty good selection.

Welcome home!

Thanks C-Lady! I'm bringing my 4 1/2 year old with me to sightsee and just wanted to make sure it was worth dragging him into the store. He loves to shop & loves cake so he won't complain too much!
Can't wait to get back to the North!

Just a bit of warning. They are not the nices people you could meet, but if you can get pass that, you'll like the store. Also, the store is really crowded. The isles are so small and you'll have to manuver around to get from place to place...oh yeah, that's kind of how the City is and your a New Yorker, you'll manuver fine.

Have a safe and great trip home.

C-Lady, so what you're saying is I should feel like my old New York self in the store?!?!
just_for_fun, I will be going home at the end of July and let you know how my experience in the store went. If you go before then, please give me a report!

I think it's worth the trip. As for expensive - hey it's NY, what isn't?

korensmommy, go in armed and ready! Seriously, you'll love the store; you'll be like a little kid walking into her first candy store. My plans changes and I didn't go today, but I'll be going on Thursday. It's always the same when I go, they're grumpy and I just laugh at them. The last time I was there I even made the owner laugh at himself. He was trying not to, but he knew what I was saying was true. I say things to him like, "wow, the cake supply business is really rough, huh." "These damb cake people, you can never please them."

Again, you'll love it. Do let me know about you adventure there.
