Thanks in advance.

P.S. The cookie part of this website are the best! I've not ventured to the other areas, but I appreciate all of you cookiers that help make me a better decorator. icon_smile.gif

Hi PSneed5,

There are so many really cool sites; try these-
http://www.cookscakeandcandy.com/
http://www.countrykitchensa.com/
http://www.cakecraftshoppe.com/
http://www.silvercloudestates.com/
http://www.americancakedecorating.com/buyers_guide.php

Whew! That should keep you busy for awhile. Sometimes I visit cookie and cake blogs and they lead into some really cool sites. I found designer cupcake wraps!

Here are a couple that I like as well.

for cookies:
http://cookiecutter.com

cakes:
www.intotheoven.com
www.bakedeco.com

I love the Cake Craft Shoppe website that Dizzymaiden provided, but I usually just go to the shop itself. It's about 15 minutes from my house and absolutely fabulous.

Dizzymaiden - Do you mind providing the site were you found designer cupcake wraps? I'm sure several people would like to know about that site.

psneed5 - I noticed you are in MO somewhere...IntotheOven is based in Springfield IL, so my orders get here super fast without paying extra for shipping. I just placed an order late Sunday night and I got it first thing yesterday morning! They have a great selection and some of the best prices I've seen!

on a related topic, where do you get your cake dummies?? I can't find ANYWHERE that I can afford them after I pay the shipping. SSHHEEESSH.

there are 2 websites that I've seen mentioned for buying good cake dummies:
www.taylorfoam.com
www.dallas-foam.com

have you tried either of these sites?

I also just saw a thread about making them yourself - with the size cake pan that you need and this foam called Good Stuff...I'll see if I can find it...

Fondant source has the best price for satin ice, but they are always out. You really have to watch.

I have also found that I can order my silicon molds directly from Firstimpressions.com which is the same thing that global sugar art carries, only it is cheaper.

I just ordered my dummies from Dallas-foam.com. I ordered a TON of dummies ($33) and the shipping was just as much. HOWEVER, it is still cheaper than getting them at the local craft store. It made some pieces only about $2 with shipping, and some pieces about 10 (it was a whimsical cut).

Thanks for the link to dallas foam.

Sugarcraft and Cakes by Sam are my two favorite sites. SugarCraft has cake dummies and usually their shipping is resonable.

Great thread! I like to order boxes from www.nashvillewraps.com. There are so many others that I order from that have already been listed as well.

Great prices on most basic decorating stuff like Americolor. ribbon,cupcake picks ect.

I believe that you do have sto spend at least $50 to order, but that's not hard to do. Their prices are great!

What about heavy duty cookie and cake boxes. The stores in my area receive baked goods like donuts in these corrugated flat boxes that would be great for cookies. Any one have ideas on how I find these? I finally stumbled onto Nashville Wraps for decorated boxes, but I am looking for plain corrugated brown boxes for transporting cookies to customers. I have been using aluminum pans up until now but that seems so unprofessional to me. I'm sure there are plenty of suppliers of boxing and such, but I just don't know where to start looking.
