I need to make a pinata cake for a wedding in October and they want teal/silver m&m's inside BUT the smallest amount you can purchase in bulk is a 2lb. bag and they cost $35 +shipping!! Does anyone have any suggestions of anything else that is edible I can use to put inside the cake that comes in those colors? I'm at a loss for ideas and may have to end up going with the expensive m&m's but was hoping to find a more inexpensive solution ...especially since it will only be inside of a small cake.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)
ASixlets. In my area, they can be found at Hobby Lobby and party stores as well as specialty bakery suppliers.
ASixlets can work, but if this is for a paying customer you should let them know that you will be using substitutes for the M&Ms. If they want original M&Ms they are welcome to pay the additional $35 + shipping + your markup.
If I ordered something with M and M's, and got Sixlets, I'd be cheesed. They aren't even remotely the same taste.
AYeah, I should have added that to my recommendation. They are totally different candies. If the request was for M & Ms, best ask before you substitute!
Where are you that they cost that much? Yikes!
Party City by me sells individual color M&M bags. As does Michael's. Are you talking about ordering from the M&M store? That sure sounds like a lot of money!
And PS I also made a pinata cake but not for a wedding! Its a very funny idea for a wedding cake - and super messy to cut!
Okay I just looked up M&M world
(if the address gets deleted just search M&M world)
9.99 flat rate shipping limited time only many colors, can be personalized, etc.
Thank you for your help.. I will check out the sixlets. Didnt even think about those. She doesnt care if they arent M&M's. It was the m&m website that I looked at and unless I cant read it right (Lol which is a distinct possibility!) the smallest amount I can order in bulk is the 2 lb for 34.99 plus 9.99 shipping. She doesnt seem like she has a huge concern about price, although her fiance talks a little differently lol .. I just thought if I can find a cheaper alternative for them in the colors they want it would help them out. Thanks to everyone :)
I will have to check if there is a party city around here. I know the closest Michaels is in columbus and I dont get down that way very often. I will have to do some checking around.. Thanks :)
If you want to order online, google wholesale candy, I found many options for places you can order from. Some have larger minimum requirements but still finding them at about $10.00 per pound.
ok I will check out google and see what I can find too .. Thank you
Blue (may include teal):
Thank you! Those are awesome sites... I think I found what I am ordering for them on the websites you sent me!
