Where I shop…

Cake Art Party Store! I started going here about two years ago when the baking and cake decorating bug bit me. When I first walked in, I was overwhelmed. Actually, I’m still overwhelmed. There’s so much stuff I don’t know… don’t even have a clue about… but I feel like I learn something new every single time I visit. Unfortunately, I can’t do that very often because this store makes me spend money.

Cake Art Party Store

Like on these things. I’m serious… this place is dangerous. I think I get a sugar high or something when I walk in … my heart starts racing … I start picking random stuff up. And when I get home, bags full… I’m like, what just happened.

Cake Art Party Store

But, when you see all these… in one place. You start thinking… do I have enough yellow sprinkles. I can’t remember. Okay, get some more and get some blue ones, and red ones while you’re at it.

Cake Art Party Store

And then, you start thinking that you can’t live without blue teddy bear sprinkles or green palm tree sprinkles, or pink pigs. And what if someone has a baby… I need those baby sprinkles or wait, boys like cupcakes… what about helmet and football sprinkles. You see where I’m going. Let’s just say that I have accumulated my fair share of sprinkles.

The funny thing is … I hardly ever use them on cupcakes or cakes. It just makes me feel good knowing I have them just in case. I know … weird! But, they do come in handy when it comes to decorating cake pops, so that’s how I justify it.

Cake Art Party Store

You can even buy them in bags!

Cake Art Party Store

Here’s something I’ve never tried… and I think I’ll leave for the pros… Airbrush! Pretty colors, though.

Cake Art Party Store

Speaking of colors… did you know you can buy rolled fondant that is already tinted?

I started doing this recently with red fondant because it is seriously a pain to tint it yourself and get it a deep red color.

Cake Art Party Store

Now, a lot of people don’t like the taste of fondant, they just like the look of it from a visual perspective. So, if you just want to experiment, then play around and buy it pre-made. Just don’t get this much. You can stick with the 1 pound packages.

Or if you really want, make some from scratch. I hear marshmallow fondant is pretty good.

Cake Art Party Store
Anyone need 25 lbs of buttercream frosting?

Cake Art Party Store

Or tinted buttercream?

Cake Art Party Store

Not me. I like to make my own buttercream and tint it myself. Yummy!

Cake Art Party Store

Need some petit four icing? Just snip the tip and go. Great for beginners.

Cake Art Party Store

Marzipan… I haven’t dabbled in this stuff yet, but I do like saying the name. Marzipan!

Cake Art Party Store

Check this out! This might just be the best part of the store. Pans! Round ones, oval ones, heart-shaped ones, square ones! And in graduated sizes, too! And different heights! Help me, please.

Cake Art Party Store

Tools. I love tools. Offset spatulas and flat spatulas. Thank you.

Cake Art Party Store

Inside these little trays are every decorating tip you can think of and some you can’t. Grab some disposable bags and couplers and you’re set.

Cake Art Party Store

There’s so much stuff in the store that you can miss little things like this. Petal dust and luster dust… I think I’m in love. Now, I just have to figure out what to do with it.

Cake Art Party Store

Need to stack a big cake? Sorry, I can’t help you… haven’t done that.

Cake Art Party Store

Mine are little and usually just end up on cake boards like these.

Cake Art Party Store

And sometimes, they get put in cake boxes. I love cake boxes. Especially the tiny ones.
Little cakes in little boxes are just the cutest!

Cake Art Party Store

Need some party supplies? They have that, too.

Cake Art Party Store

Baking cups for boys and girls.

Cake Art Party Store

Tons and tons of plastic cake toppers. I’ve never bought anything down this aisle…

Cake Art Party Store

But, this one made me laugh so hard, I almost bought it for a Mother’s Day cake. Then, I pictured myself on Cake Wrecks and stopped myself. :)

Cake Art Party Store

Father’s Day is around the corner, though…

Cake Art Party Store

Almost done… hang in there. Cookie cutters are always fun to have.

Cake Art Party Store

And so are these. I have this set of dual sided graduated cutters. I love them and they come in super handy when I make fondant covered cupcakes.

Cake Art Party Store

Gadgets galore! I can’t stand in this section too long because my pantry just isn’t big enough.

And guess what… that’s just the half of it. Actually, the 1/8th of it. I wish I could show you everything.
Coming soon… candy stuff!

Hope you guys liked looking at all that stuff and thanks Cake Art for letting me show everyone that there’s a much bigger cake world than the 9 inch cake pans I used to buy in the grocery store. And guess what guys… most of it’s easier than you think.

Wow. Good thing I don’t live anywhere near that store! I’d be broke! But it is so AWESOME!

My favorite tool for cakes is the grass icing tip. With different colored green frosting in the bag, it makes the cutest grass. I love it.

And I’m sure I could find a million things to do with sprinkles!

What an INCREDIBLE store!!! Never seen anything like it here in the West.
My favorite tool is actually used for steaming plum puddings – I love my old tin Portuguese plum pudding molds, especially the little ones that I use to make plum puddings for gifts.
Some new sprinkles just might get me out of my textbooks and into the kitchen!!

The baking tool I couldn’t do without right now is probably my extra-long spatula that reaches alllll the way to the bottom of my KitchenAid mixer bowl. Comes in really handy with large-volume, dense batters, like my pound cakes.

And I LOVE Cake Art!! I had no idea you were anywhere remotely near the Atlanta area! I grew up going there with my mom. I now live out of the area, but I’m planning a visit to Cake Art…I mean, my parents.

Great site, love your ideas! My favorite tools are the tiny Wilton cookie cutters. Very fun to use to cut shapes out of rolled-flat gummy candies for use decorating cupcakes or cakes. Keep your ideas coming; made the cupcake pops and Paula Dean flourless chocolate cake for a recent party–huge hit!

Your cool friend Cheryl said...

Ooooh, I shouldn’t be let loose in that store (or a fabric store, or craft store, or hardware store…) because I can’t control myself. I buy all the pretty things I can grab “just in case”.

My 2 yr old also has an affinity for sprinkles. In fact, it’s often hard to tell if there even is a cupcake or cookie underneath them all!

Pick me, please!! :)

wow that store looks amazing – possibly even better in selection than my local seattle store, Home Cake Deocrating:

http://seattlebonvivant.typepad.com/seattle_bon_vivant/2005/03/home_cake_decor.html

However, I’m certain my local store has prices that can’t be beat!

My favorite decorating item is something you can’t see or taste once your done using it! Whip aid! It’s a gelatin based powder that I put in fresh whipping cream when it’s just getting to soft peak. Once I’m done whipping the cream, this stuff keeps it from weeping! Whipped cream frosting, anyone????

Thanks for sharing this gem of a store! I didn’t even know it existed. I’ll be going very soon.

Hmm, it’s hard to choose a favorite item. My grandmother’s nut grinder is special. We use it to make almond cookies all the time. I really love every utensil, container, and appliance in my kitchen. It is my favorite room in the house.

What I still need are every color of jimmie/jimmy. I never seem to have them all at the same time.

My favorite tool to use is the Cake Leveler! No matter how even I think I spread the batter, or even when I use the cake strips outside of the pan, the cake is never completely leveled. I don’t have a very good hand to level it with a serrated baker’s knife, so the leveler is nifty and perfect to use!

i’m still searching for a set of miniture metal cutters that i *think* were intended for vegetables but would be perfect for miniture biscuits and fondant…my mum had some…

and as for the sprinkles i only have one pot at the moment! one!

I can’t believe that I used to do any type of baking without parchment paper! It’s a lifesaver :)

I need to visit GA just to go to that store. My tool would have to be my dad. I love to decorate but just can’t do the baking part. So my dad bakes them for me and get to do the fun stuff.

I absolutely love sprinkles! Looks beautiful in the kitchen, and can make any cake something special. Here in Sweden I don’t think we have stores like that. Makes me kind of sad.

Oh dear – that store looks like serious trouble! Good thing it’s over 1000 miles away! :) My favorite tool is an offset spatula – perfect for spreading frosting!

I don’t have ANY sprinkles! Wow what a store…I spend too much just going to Hobby Lobby! I plan on making the Cap Cups this week using White mini-Reeses and white squares in addition to the chocolate ones! My cookie scoop is one of my favorite tools.

I haven’t ventured into the world of fondant – yet – so my favorite tools are my piping tips.

i love any animal sprinkles. I use them as decoration on the edge of a cool whip and graham cracker sandwich. So good and light!

I so wish I could visit that store in person! I would be in heaven! I think my favorite tool is my kitchen aid mixer – wouldn’t be anywhere without that!

There is nothing like this store in New Zealand! I order most of my cake supplies online, but my cake leveler is my most useful can’t-live-without-you tool. The discovery of candy molds almost made my heart furiously flutter as well.

My current favorite is my square cupcake pan. Stack two to make an adorable little cube.
