YAAA... I am going to Toronto and am wondering if anyone knows of any supply shops in the downtown area that might be worth visiting? I'm not looking for anything particular but just want to browse. Maybe find something I don't see here in my local area.
Actually, I once had some "White Chocolate" fondant and was told it was bought in Toronto - I dont know where or the name of the fondant - any thoughts??? (I know it's not choco-pan)
Hey - when in Toronto a good place to check out is McCalls. http://www.mccalls-cakes.com/CONTACT.html that is the link for the address for the retail store and warehouse... i think you have to have a business # or membership to shop at the warehouse. I am hoping to take some of their proffessional courses in the spring
Also there is Golda's Kitchen http://www.goldaskitchen.com/about5.ihtml That is the link for their address. Goldas is a smaller store, but it is very nice.
Enjoy your stay in T.O.
At the McCall's warehouse, you can enter and poke around but you can't buy anything without the membership. I believe it is $25 for one year. Some people say that the prices are so good that they easily make up the $25 in one visit - depends on how much you buy, I guess. At the McCall's retail store, prices are a bit higher but anyone can buy there. Golda's sells Satin Ice if that's something you like. I tried Golda's own brand of fondant and wasn't as happy with it as I am with Satin Ice. Golda's is a bit pricey for some stuff. Not sure if there's anywhere else...
Thanks - I'll check them both out.
