I see a lot of people posting from the East Coast and from down south....

Is anyone around here from Washington? I'd love to chat with some locals

Hi there, I live in Puyallup/Tacoma area and am also a Hobby Baker.
Since we are all in the same state, do any of you know of a good place to get your caking supplies other than the internet, Michael's, or Joanne's fabrics & crafts? icon_smile.gif

I am fortunate to live fairly close to Home Cake, a tiny (but packed) store at 9514 Roosevelt Way Northeast. Here is what I posted on another thread:
"Home Cake in Seattle. The proprietress is extremely knowledgable and helpful--she's even talked me out of buying something because she told me how do it cheaper a different way. She has regular gel colors and also colors for chocolate (oil-based); a million flower stamens [of all colors]; books, cake pans, hundreds of those acrylic chocolate molds (e.g., 20 one-sided easter eggs on one sheet), cutters, plastic doodads, dragees, tiny royal icing flowers--the list of inventory is incredible. If you can think of it, ask her."

If you're ever in Bothell, Dawn's (Cake and Candy?) has a small selection of items but has GREAT prices. Americolor gel pastes are $1.50 for example. I know it would be cheaper on Amazon when you buy a set but that's a good price if you need one in a pinch.

I can't wait to go to Home Cake!

MrsBowtiy Posted 18 Oct 2011 , 5:51am

Home cake is an awesome store I no longer live on that side of the state but went in there often when I did. The owner is very informative and helpful. She also know a ton of other sources (she gave me the name of a lady that does flower classes, wish I had followed up on that now). There was a tiny store in Roy for awhile not sure if it's still there or not. And then there's Dawns in Kent I believe. Home cake is well worth the drive from where you are at.
