I've seen a lot of interesting things for sale online, but I'm wondering if they are available in Canada. E.g. butevan. Are there cake supply stores open to the general public -- specifically in Edmonton. I get wilton supplies through Michael's, but I'm also interested in trying some fillings or possibly purchasing fondant. I would also like to get my hands on a leaf veiner (I got the gumpaste flower book and set by Wilton, but it only had the leaf impression thing for the back of the leaf and not the front). I'll have my three little ones with me when I head to the city, so I don't want to have to wander through 10 stores looking for cake supplies.
You might get some luck on the Canadian version of this website:
Not sure about suppliers in the Edmonton area, but these 4 are located near Toronto and have online ordering/shipping:
www.goldaskitchen.com (my favourite, SUCH good customer service!)
www.creativecutters.com (excellent selection of products)
www.petradecor.com (has Americolor! amazing gumpaste flowers)
www.mccalls.ca ( , bleh...but still useful for some things)
Here are a few I just Googled in the Edmonton area. It can't hurt to ask about their availability for retail bakers. If not, do you have a Bulk Barn in your area? They sell a LOT of great supplies, heavy on the Wilton brand too.
