I've just moved to the UK, and am at a loss for where to shop. Should I rely on Amazon / Ebay, or do you recommend any other sites?
Bump? Sorry, but I really need to buy some stuff. Any help would be much appreciated!
You should check out this thread:
I use almondart.com/ sugarshack.co.uk the most and never have a problem with either.
Thanks both of you. I'm hooked onto sugarshack
Hi there! There are a good few out there, but yeah sugarshack, almond art, and another favorite of mine is surbitonsugarart! They've always been good with fast delivery etc! I am based in Paris and I wanted to place a big order from sugarshack as they had great prices.... But then were going to charge me almost same amount of my order to deliver!!!! Surbitonsugarart had very slightly higher price but delivery far more reasonable! Of course it differs when you are in uk, but even when have big orders including cake boards etc it might make a difference? Also, depending on where you live, you may find a good store nearby! So you end up saving on that cost and can browse the store to your hearts delight! If you're anything like me though.... That might end up being more costly! Hahahha! I always get so tempted!
Good luck and if I think of any others I will let you know!
Hi, I also use Almondart, A peice of cake and Design a cake all the time.
I tend to use thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk as their postage is very reasonable and super speedy, plus they have lots of equipment and ingredients from the USA!
I use and would recommend www.craftcompany.co.uk. As well as ordering on -line you can also visit their premises in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire (if that is close to you!)
I also use almond art, Design a cake, and Ebay has to be my most favorite! you can get soo much stuff on the their its unreal, as well as at really good prices and deliverys, i just recently bought 150 meters of all different coloured ribbon for less than a tenner as my local cake supply store was charging me almost a pound a meter!!
cakestuff.com is another good one. I use them mainly for fondant, gumpaste etc.
I order from www.cakecraftworld.co.uk all the time
I´m from Portugal and i usually buy things from: http://www.cake-stuff.com ; http://shop.haveyourcakeandeatit.org and from EBAY.UK
