I AM HAVING THE WORST TIME FINDING CAKE SUPPLY STORES HERE IN LOS ANGELES,CA .I GO TO GLORIA'S CAKE SUPPLY STORE AND SUR LA TABLE .IS THERE ANYONE IN LOS ANGELES THAT KNOWS A CAKE SUPPLY PLACE I CAN TRY
Have you tried CalJava in Northridge? You can find them on line, there's a phone number on their website. You can call their store and see if they have what you need before making a trip. There is also Marie's Party Palace in San Fernando, tele 818-365-3606.
Here is a list of suppliers, as posted on the California Cake Club website:
THANKYOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!
You are welcome! You should consider joining the California Cake Club.. they have lots of members in your area.. There is also a local club, Sweet Arts of Orange County that is a wonderful organization... www.sweetartscakeclub.com
That list is great! Just to add a personal touch, Surfas is great - they have lots of baking supplies (sugars, cocoas, TONS of pans, etc., misc food products) but not a lot of decorating stuff. But just enough to lure me back from time to time. Small selection of gels and dusts, etc. but not as much as at a proper cake shop. Still, absolutely worth a trip.
I was going to mention NY Cake - haven't been but someone just told me about it.
Also a little farther south, in Carson/Torrance just off the 110 at Lomita, is The Cake Palace. It's a great little shop, good supply of colors, dusts, and they carry Rich's Whip-n-Ice if you can't find Bettercreme anywhere.
That list also shows Cookin' Stuff in Torrance (almost Redondo) which is a good shop but only if you're not local to Surfas (Surfas carries far more stuff).
I can't stand Gloria's - they are SO expensive!
Sur la Table is waaaaaaaaaaay too expensive! You can find way better stuff at Surfas. Please go there. NOW!!
If you want to see cute guys, check out Cal Java. The owner's son is so adorable.
