I went to Michael's today and they did have the fountain.. but no pillars! Ideally I would like to know if there is anywhere online where you can buy the whole kit, fountain, pillars and plates. I've checked on e-bay, but so far it's just the fountain. And I have a 50% off coupon for Michael's so the $100 fountain would only be $50.. which is what the e-bay ones are going for (plus shipping). However I dont' really want to buy the fountain if I can't find the pillars.
Any suggestions? If I can't find a kit with the whole thing, what would I need.. 4 13" Pillars? (from what I've been reading) and a 14" cake plate? The box didn't tell you what you needed either.
I found mine at my local cake decorating shop, but have also had good luck on ebay and found a full set of plates, pillars and the fountain there for a great deal. You could try Wilton.com if nothing else.
They don't ship to anywhere but the US
But that would've been perfect. Thanks for the help.. if anyone else has any suggestions, please let me know!
Did you try Wilton.com? ...
You'd need at least a 16" set of plates and 6 -13" pillars; I think 14" would be too small, but I haven't measured. I have two sets of plate/pillars: the crystal look ones, and the white arched pillars with white plates. One set has (I think) 6 pillars and a 16" plate, the other has 7 and a 17" plate (I think--don't quote me--haven't measured them).
I'm almost sure I've seen the set of crystal look pillars at Michaels; did you try asking them if they could order what you need?
for the fountain I would recommend:
I got my fountain with them and I could be any happier.
As for the rest:
Do you know anyone that lives near another Michaels that might have it? They could mail it to you.
It is a pain when when the majority of good ebay deals won't ship to Canada, or the shipping costs are outrageous and then you have to pay duty on top of it.
Hope you find it
And my fear with going from the US to Canada would be it getting caught up at custom's. I'm going to look into a couple of the ebay ones, but I might just have to take a bit of a road trip to the Michael's in the city's closest to me.
It's really too bad they don't sell it as a kit!
Thanks again everyone!
yeah, I hadn't thought about customs....
