Hi everyone i have just started a make to order cupcake business from home and wanted to know where's the best place online to buy products (fondant, cases, boxes..etc...) rather than spending loads at the local shops.....
If you buy bulk for cake boards and ingredients and whatnot and you will save a ton of $$. You may be able to buy direct from a local distribution warehouse that carries bakery supplies. That sort of listing is harder to find through regular channels but if you call a nearby bakery and ask like a curious customer instead of potential competitor, they will probably tell you how/where they get their stuff. Around any major city, there is always at least one such place.
Hope this helps and good luck with your new cupcake biz!
