I'm a relative newbie here, although I've been making cakes for years. Now that I've conquered my avatar I will start putting some pics up.
On to my question...We moved to Northwest Arkansas from California 3 years ago and I have yet to find anyone nearby where I can get good quality cake and candy supplies. I have been ordering everything off the internet and paying a fortune in shipping. Just curious if anyone knows if there is a good shop anywhere near Bentonville, AR? I would even drive to Tulsa, OK or Springfield, MO if I need to.
Also, I'd like to try some commercial fondant (besides Wilton - yuck) and am wondering what you'd recommend for a client who doesn't like the taste of fondant but likes the look of fondant cakes. I have made MMF and I like how it tastes but don't always want the sheen that it has. Just wondering before I plunk down $$$ to buy it online.
Hi and Congrats on your 1st post, TamathaV.
Great looking cake for your avatar.
Best tasting fondant threads:

Sorry, can't help with suppliers in your area.
Welcome to Cake Central. Your avatar is very nice.... a new decorator to share ideas.
Good luck finding your supplies. Here in Tucson, its either Michaels, Walmart (which you have plenty of) or I found a nice little cake/candy supply shop. Check out your area yellow pages.
Thanks for the replies JanH and aztomcat! I'll check out those links.
