I'm taking a class with Nicholas Lodge next week. I thought I might check out cake supply stores. Can you recommend any? There are none here in Minnesota except Michaels. Paying for shipping on bulk items can get pricey. I'm driving, so I'll have room to pick things up. TIA

I'm just south of Atlanta. Unfortunately, the only good store we had down here closed recently. I order everything online now.

Yes - Cake Art is wonderful and is only about 5 miles from ISAC. ISAC has marvelous supplies, too, so set up your home equity loan before you go icon_lol.gif

LOL icon_biggrin.gif When I go into ISAC I go with cash only, and a pre-determined amount. If not, dum dum dum... I'll end up having to mortgage off my dog, or borrow my kids allowance, or beg and plead with the hubby, or....wait a minute, I'm on a roll here. I might be making a trip to the city after all!! icon_biggrin.gif

I love both ISAC (store where you are taking your class) and Cake Art. I just took a class at ISAC this past weekend with my all time favorite cake artist Mike McCarey. I like ISAC best of the two stores because they have more silicone molds, veiners, and flower cutters than Cake Art does. Cake Art has a limited supply of gumpaste flower making supplies (while ISAC is known for their sugar flowers). One advantage Cake Art has over ISAC is the amount of cake pans they carry. So really it depends on what type of products you are wanting to buy.

One thing I love about taking classes at ISAC is they have a basket with every student's name on it and a wall of all the products used during class that are available for purchase.

ISAC stands for International Sugar Art Collection. It is located in Norcross, GA where Nicholas Lodge teaches his classes and has a cake supply store.

Thanks for all the great advise. I'm sure I'll max out every plastic card I have. I hope my husband does find out before I go. He might close all my accounts. tapedshut.gif I didn't know ISAC had a lot of items. Their website is rather skimpy. I'm so excited. icon_biggrin.gif

I thought the same thing, that's why I didn't know there was a store

Yes ISAC has a lot of stuff. Everything from metal cutters for flowers, Patchwork Cutters (every one imaginable), silicone molds and veiners, candy molds and supplies, the premium fondants, etc. You can go crazy in there. I have to try to set a budget every time I am there. It is hard though because I want one of everything!!

Cake Art is a party store so besides any cake pan you can think of, they have party ware for birthdays, baby and bridal showers, cake drums, masonite boards, candy supplies, etc.
