There are a few good places online to order from. Cake stuff, A Piece of Cake and e bay to name a few. Postage can be an issue as it really bumps up the price of a cake. I rarely charge for mine and then only to cover ingredients costs. So I try to think of what I will need in advance and try to order stuff together to keep costs down. I only use Asda or Sainsburys ready to roll sugarpaste. I know it is not the best brand to buy but I have used it for years now and have got used to it. I can't justify the more expensive brands . If you are a business you can pass the costs on to customers. There are a few others on this board who can give you the names of recommended suppliers and point you in the right direction.
