I hope someone on here can help out. I am traveling to Chicago next week and I making a cake for someone while I am there. I ordered supplies from GSA with plenty of time to spare and had them shipped directly to Chicago...however 1 of the 2 boxes has been lost by UPS! I can reorder the items from GSA Monday morning and will have them Wednesday AM in Chicago but I want a backup plan in case something happens to the new shipment.
So my question is...Where in Chicago can I purchase chocolate satin ice fondant, petal dust and First Impression Molds? I will be in the NW suburbs but will have access to a car so I can drive somewhere if I need to get supplies. Please help!!
There's not a lot to choose from, but there is the Wilton Homewares Store in the Western 'burbs: (their corp hqtrs is nearby) of course, they sell primarily Wilton products.
7511 Lemont Rd. (corner of Lemont & 75th St.)
I've never been here, but have wanted to try it:
It's not anywhere near the NW suburbs, however.
One caution is to be mindful of travel times....Chicago traffic really bites!
Thanks...I knew about the Wilton store and I checked out Cakewalk's website. Looks like that will be my best backup plan if something happens with my reorder. I know all about Chicago traffic- I was born there and lived there until I was 10 and then my hubby and I lived there for 6 years after college. I hate how everything is focused on getting into downtown Chicago...not everything is downtown! Thanks for the tips!
