Actually I prefer Cake Craft for my weekly things. I use their 5 pound bags of 12x powdered sugar. I know it would be cheaper to buy it in bulk, but one batch of my buttercreme takes exactly 5 pounds, so I love not having to ever measure. I just dump in the whole bag and when it's empty, I know my buttercreme is right.
Dave has offered to sell me ps in the 50 pound bag for dirt cheap, but then I have to a) figure out where to put it, and b) make my own 5 pound bags.
Cake Craft is also cheaper for cardboard rounds and boxes than HH. I do really like Lady at HH hostess though. She's so sweet! I always check there for any specialty items before I buy them online. Usually I end up buying most of those things online though.
And I second the question - hey Loucinda, where are there wholesale places here in Columbus? Other than Sam's/Costco, that is? I'm trying desperately to find a supplier for Land o' Lakes butter for less than the $4-something ridiculous it is a pound at the grocery store. I go through a TON of butter a week. I'm finding Sam's butter not too bad, but it's still not as good as Land o Lakes...
