So, I went into Michael's yesterday for various caking items and noticed that they are doing a slightly better job of accomodating baker's needs by livening up the baking aisle. They have also started carrying Duff's new line of products. I balked at the price (though I know it was previously mentioned in other posts) but was curious, so I used the 40% off coupon and bought some of the fondant... It's pretty nice, a liiiiittle gooey but not bad to work with.

I hope this is a sign of even better things to come at Michael's and that they will continue to introduce a wider range of baking items!

Me too. I don't know how other Michael's stores operate but the one that we have is VERY limited on cake supplies. Our Hobby Lobby is much better stocked in that department. The cake decorating asile at our Michael's is tiny. icon_lol.gif The one at Hobby Lobby is three times it's size.

The one here has a wide range of Wilton products and they are usually pretty well stocked on things (i.e. cake boards, tips, colorings, pans, tools, etc). They know me by name in that place : ) Lol. The Hobby Lobby is about 35 mins from me wheras the Michael's is only about 15 and our Hobby Lobby's baking aisle is almost non-existent, so Michael's usually wins. It makes me sad because I hear about all the awesome things people get at their Hobby Lobbys! Hopefully, your Michael's will up their game!

Gak! That'd be the first & last time buying that stuff ever! I bet it was one of those rubbery finger cots that cover bandaids. Ugh! I can remember reading in the paper about someone finding a finger cot in their bowl of soup. That is soooo not nice! icon_surprised.gif

I was at our Michaels 2 days ago and they were re-doing the whole cake decorating aisle. I am anxious to go see what it looks like now. I am hoping they got new items in.
