I am looking for a supply company here in georgia that sells everything. I need to purchase boxes, colors, cupcake liners, fondant, flavorings, etc. I haven't found any in my area (sugar hill/buford) and was hoping someone from around here would know of a place. Thanks so much. I've found 2 but they are in norcross and stone mountain...a little farther than I'd like to have to go.

Cake Art in Tucker is the only one I know of, besides the standard Michaels/Hobby Lobby. They do have a website though, if you want to order that way.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I get all my cake boards and boxes at Pierce Wholesale in Gainesville.
There is also the Party Shop over on Shallowford Road, or you might try Party Art in Cumming.

If you want their phone numbers, pm me and I'll be glad to give them to you. icon_smile.gif

Is there a website regarding the North GA event?

I live in North Georgia, right at the TN line, south of Chattanooga. I get all my decorating supplies from a store in Chattanooga, The Sugar Shoppe. They do have a website. I also go through Michaels and Hobby Lobby when necessary.

I'd like to know more about this cake competition in North Georgia. Where can I find out more info?

Has anyone tried a restaurant supply store? Both stores in my area also sell cake supplies. Not to the extent of a cake specialty store, but boards, boxes, tips and bags, pans - I can get them all there, at less cost than the cake supply places.

I have already signed up to be in the competition in August. I've never done anything like it so we'll see how it turns out. I'm totally excited though to get to be around other cake decorators.

Julia, I sent it.

Onceuponacake - I wish you guys were closer. lol I'm in the Vinings area. Maybe I can make it up one day, I want to check it out! Especially now that the CCC is on hiatus.

let's see if i can get it to work....

thanks for those that sent it to me.,,,,

I emailed the lady in charge about the out of state thing. The flyer has vendor stuff but not rules and regs for the decorators,,,,

we will see... Maybe let;s try a meet up when we get there...specific time or something. that would be fun.

It would be fun to say hi and maybe sit together to watch (for those going to watch)...we can cheer on the CCers! I was there last year to support a friend I met through here. I need to see if she's competing again.

Here are the rules I got from Carol. They are a bit blurry because I think they were scanned, but I think you can make them out.
