I just wondered where people go to get wholesale prices on items as a vendor.

I just tried Pettinice fondant, and really liked working with it. I paid 40.00 for a 15 lb tub. I would like to know if anyone buys it wholesale, from whom, and for how much?

Also, where else do you go for wholesale prices on other things.

i buy my sugar, powder sugar, brown sugar, flour,and crisco at costco and it saves me a ton of money..plus i get 2% back at end of year that goes towards my next years membership fee. i get 50 pounds of powder sugar for $20.00 which is much better than dragging home a bunch of 1lb bags of it.

Hi Ellen,

I used to buy my Pettinice at the local cake decorating shop where it was a special order and about $80.00 for the 15 pound tub. When I found it at Pfeil and Holing (http://www.cakedeco.com) for $36.95 I was ecstatic because even with 20 dollars shipping that was a good deal. Now I've found it for $35.40 or something like that at a wholesalaer about 45 minutes away where I can pick it up for free or pay minimal shipping because it is local.

I think if you are paying $40.00 for the big tub, you are pretty close to wholesale and not likely to do much better.

I've gotten hi-ratio shortening from Bakemark. It's fifty pounds at a time, but it works out to about 50 cents a pound, instead of $6.00 or soemthing for 3 lobs at the local cake shop. According to the BakeMark website there is one close to you at:

120 Victoria Rd.

toll free: 800-688-2253

They have a lot of other products, but none that I use. You can check to see if any are useful to you at:


I'm sure you could call them and talk about what they could do for you also.

Good Luck and let us know if you find out anything good to share.
