Just wanted to update everyone interested. Elaine's in Mint Hill closed a few months back. Sinfully Sweet in Pineville also closed.
In the store front that used to house Sinfully Sweet, 8700 Pineville-Matthews Rd; the Tower Place Shopping Center, is now The Cake Studio. They carry decorating supplies and are very willing to find and order for you things they may not have in stock. I have met both the owner and her daughter and they are wonderfully sweet people, very eager to help and give advice. Yay for local shops!
I've been there and they are AWESOME! They are very helpful. I'm so happy we have somewhere to go by supplies here in Charlotte.
I agree Bela, I'm amazed that in a city this size we have just this one shop other than the usual trifecta of Michaels, Hobbby Lobby, and A C Moore. This area should be booming with this type business!
