I am looking for some websites that people have used to purchase fondant cutters and or molds as well as petal dust etc. I live in Canada and am looking for reasonably priced websites preferably in Canada (to cut down on the shipping) but outside of Canada too. Any recommendations will be truely appreciated.
hey there! Isn't cake supply shopping in Canada a pain? Here are some of the websites from Canada that I've browsed, although I haven't ordered online a ton because of shipping in general.
http://www.scoop-n-save.com/ (Langley BC)
http://www.cakemischief.com/ (Edmonton AB)
http://j-wilton.com/store/ (Edmonton AB)
http://goldaskitchen.com/ (Somewhere in ON?)
Do you have any Bulk Barns near you? They have some good basic supplies, like Virgin Ice fondant and petal dust. It's a nice alternative to Michaels!
There is icinginspirations.ca in Kitchener, Golda's Kitchen in Toronto and cakemischief.ca in Edmonton. I am sure that there others but those are some that I have used and like.
Flour Confections in Pickering,ON. Check out the website.
Goldas Kitchen is in Mississauga,ON.
I am in Eastern Ontario and I have been using Flour Confections and Golda's mostly. Shipping is typically around $10 for most of my orders, but I usually get the package in a day or two which I love. I havn't really tried any US websites because I havn't found any that would offer me a better shipping rate or time of delivery.
There's also McCall's in Mississauga. You need to be a business (or pay a yearly membership fee) to get their wholesale prices.
And, there's Creative Cutters in Richmond Hill.
Be wary when ordering from US sites - you can be hit by a big shipping fee, which you'll know about up-front AND a customs fee on delivery, which you won't. The customs fee can be twice what the shipping costs, really bumping up the price of your 'deal'.
I've used Flour confections, Cake Mischief and Golda's, plus I also vouch for PM Hobbycraft in Calgary (although not their mail order). All have good, prompt service and a decent enough range of products.
I would like to add Icing Inspirations to the above sites...
They offer free shipping almost every Tuesday for $75 orders or $5 shipping for $50 orders.Make sure you subscribe to their mailing list. Their service is awesome... Although they dont have everything listed on their site sometimes you have to call, I wanted to order some Americolor bottles, they only have around 8 colors on site but they actually have them all...
Also if you have FB acount become a fan for the following pages, they sometimes offer free shipping... be one of the first to know
http://www.facebook.com/globalsugarart?ref=ts&sk=wall (not Canadian but they offer discounted shipping every month or so)
Also there's Nicholson Equipment in Edmonton....
They have all sorts of decorating tips, molds, plunger cutters, disco dust, luster dust, fondant... etc
You can give them a call & they can ship your order, not sure for how much though (I normally go to Edmonton)
So many good links here.
Thank you everyone for your replies...you have all been very helpful
