does anyone know of a good cake decorating supply store in the western mass/ct area. I normal get what I can from michaels but they don't always have the best choices for stuff. I would love to go to global sugar arts store but they are a 4hr drive me me. the ny boarder isn't that far from me but they are much further north.
would love the help!!
I wish I could help you. I just moved to Mass. and haven't figured that out yet. Hopefully some other massachusetts decorators will help us out. I know there is one in New Hampshire but that is probably pretty far for you.
I am not sure there is one, and if there is they don't advertise very well! I have searched endlessly online. I would love to know where the one in New Hampshire is........it may be worth the drive for me. I live in Western MA too!
I just searched for the one in NH. I am assuming it's called 'Eatons Cake and Candy Supplies' because that is the only one I can find. I SOOOOOOOO want to go here! It's in Hooksett. GoogleMaps says it's 2 hours and 10 minutes from me, which means it's probably like an hour and 45 minutes (they always give the long way). Man, I was just up there in June for a wedding! Probably only about 25 minutes away!! I wish I had known! Looks like I am day-tripping it to NH some day this week! I'll stop at one of the beaches on the way back so that my husband doesn't freak out that I am driving that far to go 'cake shopping' as he calls it!
Don't know just where you are but...
Just over the NY border is Confectionery House Thats located in Troy, very close to the vt border. Then just outside of Albany is Candyland Confectionery in East Greenbush.
You can see what the confectionery house has at www.cofectioneryhouse.com
the one in NH looks to be a pretty good drive about 2 1/2 hrs. troy NY is only about 1 1/2hr drive so it looks like it wins so far. It will be a stock up trip I think.
I just google mapped the Troy, NY store and it's 2 hours 9 min. So....I guess since they are only a minute apart, I will go to the Troy NY store too! They have a pretty good selection on their website, and the one in NH doesn't really list much. Just an FYI, there is one in Cranston RI that I found called Cameo something. No website though.
Saw your post and wanted to let you know I opened a store this past April in North Hampton, New Hampshire. We have lots of cake decorating and candy making supplies! We also have classes and host out of state instructor classes! We also have a cake and sugar art club that meets once a month!

Thanks for posting this topic. I just checked online in my area in south Florida and there is a cake supply store in my county that I will have to check out.
Eaton's in NH has a ton of stuff. But their prices are high.
There is another cake supply store further north in NH. I forget where but I have been told their prices are much more reasonable and have an extensive store as well.
In Concord NH there is a tiny little store with limited product but in a pinch they are handy for me because they are local.
Hello Epicurian Delights I had not heard about you. I might have to make a trip over your way soon.
Party Cakes Party Cakes is in Tauton, MA, if you should be in eastern MA. They do not have a web site, but you can call and see if they carry what you need.
