I am an at home baker/decorator and I don't keep alot of material just lying around. I usually just get what I need when an order comes in. Lately, business is picking up and I need more supplies such as boxes, cakeboards, and fondant. Where do you guys order these type of supplies from? I was wondering if there is a website most go to. I'm getting beat by not ordering in bulk, and getting everything from Walmart. Also Im done with Wilton fondant and want to go with Satin Ice, but its nowhere to be found in my area. Any suggestions?

Its where most of us get our baking supplies not being big box stores.

Obviously fresh stuff like butter, eggs flour etc are best bought from the big stores we all hate lol!

Unless of course you have a place to store it and the turnaround to buy bulk like commercial bakeries?

(and that's why you can't do cheap?)

Is there no one near you offering similar deals?

Did you get my PM ?

Cake Boxes and cake boards: BRP Box Shop  --> BONUS: they sell in quantities of 10 or full cases of 100

I get my fondant through Deco-Pac (Satin Ice), or CalJava Online (Fondx).  Deco-Pac is great for tools, and shipping is fre if you kick your order up to $75. 

Ingredients: Costco or Restaurant Depot, depending on how much I need.  Mostly Costco, though.  RD is well over an hour away from me, and Costco is carrying stuff in larger amounts (30# of butter in a case instead of 4#, yay!).

I get my cake boxes/cupcake containers and the like from a local cash and carry paper store near me.  You might want to look into it and see if there is one near you :)

I am also home baker/decorator and I get my supplies from Global Sugar Art and Fondant Source ( they have really good prices on everything from petal dusts to cake boards etc.

Satin Ice was my go to fondant until I discovered Michelle Foster's Fondant right here on CC, it is more economical to make your own, it tastes delicious and its a dream to work with. I always have a batch on hand.

I make my own also.  I make a marshmallow fondant that tastes great and is pretty cheap to make.

post #13 of 13 has great prices, especially for cake circles. I've never bought fondant from them but you can get a pack of 10 10-inch cake circles for $1.73! For boxes, I mine from Here's a link to another forum discussion about that:
