Hi! Yay a fellow Canadian! I'm from Saskatchewan and here in Regina I get Satin Ice from our hobbystore called PM Hobbycrafts. I like Virgin Ice fondant too and Bulk Barn carries that.

Where in Canada are you?

In addition to Michael's which seems to have stores everywhere in Canada except the province of Quebec.
In Calgary you could try http://www.pmhobbycraft.ca/store/ .
In Edmonton there is http://www.cakemischief.com/.
In south Ontario there is http://www.goldaskitchen.com/index.ihtml.
In Quebec City we have Fantaisies Culinaires which doesn't have a huge inventory, but promises to be able to get whatever I ask for.

Where I come from theres hardly any stores for caking supplies, so I either get from Micheals (in Edmonton), ebay or Goldas Kitchen (online)

Where is the PM in Regina? I thought they were only in Calagary and Med Hat. My DH drives truck and when he's in Calgary he shops for me at the PM there. Having a Regina source would be good too.

Oh! And I forgot Bulk Barn (for high ratio shortening and Wilton supplies), the dollar store (you would be surprised of what you can find), Michaels (mostly for ribbons).

I'm in the GTA in ontario, and I get my stuff at a few places. Mccalls, I use their store brand fondant and its inexpensive and easy to work with. Also, Golda's kitchen, they have lots on their website and prices are reasonable. And flour confections, they have great service and they ship.

I just recently purchased some fondant at bulk barn (virgin ice), in addition to being more expensive than the other stuff I normally use, it was terrible! Very hard to work with. It was very soft, and tore a lot. I would not recommend this.

www.mccalls.ca
www.flourconfections.com
www.goldaskitchen.com

Hope that helps!

I've ordered online from http://www.cakemischief.com/ without problems. They're in Beaumont ( a burb of Edmonton). Their shipping is not outrageous, there is (as you know) no provincial tax and because they're a really small company they're not yet charging the GST, and as an added bonus, when you get your first order they give you a 10% discount coupon for your next order.

If Bulk Barn or Michael's doesn't have it, I can usually order online from Golda's. Have ordered several times and have no complaints....
