Hi!

I'm taking a trip to the Minn/St Paul area this weekend and would really like to visit some smaller bakeries. Any suggestions? Also, are there any good supply stores that would have AmeriColor gel food coloring? Or cookie cutters or baking gadgets? I know I can Google all of this but I would rather hear firsthand from CC'ers.

Thanks! Heidi.

The ONLY supply store in the Minneapolis area is Lynn's Cake and Candy. Since she moved into her new shop, her prices went WAYYYYYY up. She does have a fairly good selection of everything.

As for bakeries--I have no clue icon_smile.gif

I hear the Franklin Street Bakery is quite nice. Never been there myself, but my brother in law says it's awesome.

The only cake supply store that I knew of was Sweet Celebrations, but they closed a while ago. I've never heard of Lynn's, but now that I have a name I'm going to check it out.

Yeah, since it's pretty much impossible to have a cake business without having a full out commercial kitchen in MN, the cake supply stores are few and far between if existent at all.

Oh, I just remembered a place in Prior Lake called Edelweiss. I hear they're pretty good too. I went in there once and noticed a couple of wedding cake displays by the case.

I've lived in MN my whole life and it seems to me that everybody thinks of Walmart or Sam's Club or Costco when they need a cake.

Hhmmm, I thought there would be a lot more for the size of the Cities. That's too bad. I will definetly check out the ones mentioned though, at least it makes it easy to choose where to go, there's only three choices! LOL!!

I have missed Sweet Celebrations so much since they closed. Lynn's really is the only game in town, so far as I can tell that carries items beyond the basics that are available at Michael's, Walmart, etc). Hope you enjoy your trip!

The people at Lynn's are very nice and yes, they DO carry Americolor gel paste. I was there 2 weeks ago. They're still getting things set up but they do have a very wide variety.

I've never been to their shop, but Wuolette's Bakery does great work.

Have fun!

Don't get your hopes up. The Sweet Celebration site has said that for the past year.

Agreed and they have a number of locations in different areas around the cities so depending on where you are going to be spending your time.......
