Hi there,

I'm a relative newbie here, although I've been making cakes for years. Now that I've conquered my avatar icon_wink.gif 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.

Thanks!

Tammy

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.


Good Baking....
